Episode Summary

Trust Me I'm a Prime Minister
Rory Bremner and the two Johns return for a one-off special. President Bush is in town, and Tony Blair sees the Special Relationship as a potential means of upping his credibility on the home front. One party conference, a public enquiry, a state visit and a mass demonstration after the war in Iraq supposedly ended and it's time for Tony Blair to submit himself to trial by comedy once more, at the hands of Bremner, Bird & Fortune. With illusionists in the news this year, Tony's ability to get out of seemingly impossible situations will need to be even more impressive than ever. After all, in the words of Alastair Campbell, ‘there is this huge stuff about trust'. With Campbell gone to sharpen his pencil, our PM looks an ever-more isolated figure, out of touch with Cabinet, Parliament and the people. According to an unidentified former Minister, to whom we refer only as ‘Clare Short', Tony Blair is now making an increasing number of decisions in private with his small coterie of courtiers. Despite this, it is a near foregone conclusion that Blair will be re-elected, quite possibly with an increased majority. Why? In this year's autumn special, Rory, John and John set out to answer a crucial question; just what is the point of Tony Blair? In "Trust Me, I'm A Prime Minister", the court of Blair meet to decide how to deal with the forthcoming Hutton Report, while TB plays out his fantasies, taking on a phalanx of Gordon Browns in a scene from The Matrix. Oh yes, and there's a guest appearance by Michael Howard too.moreless
