Notes: This fic crosses two television series: one quite well known, one far less well known. The less-known series is No Job for a Lady, a mid-1990s Penelope Keith star vehicle that provided some interesting (and occasionally trenchant) commentary on the unique problems of being a female Labour Member of Parliament at a time when that particular combination was far more of a rarity than it is today. As a result, the setting is sometime in the early 1990s -- say, early 1991, well before the 1992 General Election.
