The murder of a white prisoner by his Asian inmate has created a media frenzy and the press are demanding a statement from their local MP, Labour minister Jo Porter who is nowhere to be seen. When she finally arrives at work, hungover, she lets slip to Danny that Scott left last night's party with Kirsty. Danny is left wondering what happened between the two of them. Scott and Kirsty decide to lie about it.

Sexy journalist Sophie convinces Labour supporting Scott to escort her to the Conservative Winter Ball. His boss, Stephen Templeton encourages him to go - hoping to win new Tory contacts. When Scott bumps into Ashika at the party, their attraction is reignited and it looks like a romance may be back on the cards. Later, feeling disillusioned, Scott vandalises his office and hands in his resignation.
