Adaptation of William Douglas Home's drawing-room comedy about a shocked butler (Parker) who puts up for election as Tory candidate when the young master (Tomlinson) proposes to run for Labour and marry the parlourmaid. Needless to say the conservative proprieties are observed at the end, and it all emerges more as domestic farce than political satire, but excellent performances (Parker, Fielding and Matthews in particular) make it really rather engaging.
