Episode 4

Though Damian is caught up in the anti-capitalist enthusiasm of one of his teachers who smuggles key anti Poll Tax Protesters into school to inspire the children, he still has a secret desire to impress his unlikely heroine Margaret Thatcher.

He's been hiding his sexuality for years, but he finally discovers some freedom in dancing to Madonna in Glasgow's only gay club.
