Storyline

Nicola is keen to find a famous sports person to front her Healthy Choices campaign but Tucker is officially on holiday - or rather recovering from the result of his spat with Terri. Thus new spin doctor Steve Fleming is brought in and whilst Ollie may regard him as a saviour this is the man Tucker once drummed out of the party. The last thing he wants is to give his old adversary power over him so he hosts a cosy lunch for the press, stressing that, whatever people think, he is still in charge. Written by don @ minifie-1

Quotes

Steve Fleming: We both know we don't like each other - everyone knows that. We are the Gallagher brothers of politics
Malcolm Tucker: How does that work? Does that mean I'm the semi-talented songwriter and you're fucking loutish prick? That's a lovely analogy.
