This is a political satire with a London inner city twist.

In this mockumentary/drama series we follow stereotypical inner city characters who are parodies of real life political figures.
We witness as they enact policies, break promises, lie, cheat and stab each other in the backs for personal gain, all while the people they claim to represent suffer the consequences.

Surely this isn't how politics work???

But with those above her about to make a very serious mistake can she convince them to see things her way in order to save everything she has worked so hard to attain?
