Episode Summary

Bremner,Bird and Fortunes Exit Poll
As the country recovers from election-itis, Rory and the Two Johns provide the post-match analysis in this satirical special. Tony and Alastair, fast becoming a top comic double act, once again talk privately as the CCTV cameras roll. Tony offers his candid thoughts on handling angry members of the public, and they mull over the possibility of all of John Prescott's future public appearances being pay-per-view. At the dinner party, the enthusiasm of the Islington set is pepped up by the prospect of spread betting. Meanwhile, across the political divide, we learn exactly why those schoolchildren ran towards William Hague. A foppish Peter Mandelson drops languidly in and Michael Portillo at last explains where the spending knife will go in. Shaun Woodward goes canvassing to ask would-be voters if they live in his constituency - and whether their home is Grade I or Grade II listed. There's also a chance to glimpse Ffion, while Charles Kennedy explains that it is not the winning that is important, it's the holding onto your principles that counts. As the show is recorded the night after the election result, scripts are still under wraps - but one highly topical piece involves a 17th century George Parr interviewing King Charles II.moreless
