James Bonney, the swashbuckling moderate, the (ladies) man of the people doesn’t take kindly to enemies within – not his new leader who believes in something called socialism nor his local rival who thinks he’s sold out. Whose business is it if he’s having an affair? His political rival lives with his daughter while his agent fancies his wife. No one said life was perfect. Can James maintain his position, crush internal enemies and secure his place in history? And what does he have to do to bag that shadow cabinet post?
