Emma Messinger

Emma is a Special Adviser to Peter Mannion.

Ruthlessly efficient and determined to make it in politics, she spends a lot of time sucking up to Stewart Pearson and any of the PM’s inner circle at Number 10.

Emma takes a hard-nosed, hard-line attitude to her job. Peter Mannion is probably right to fear and mistrust her. Ex-housemate to Phil, and ex-girlfriend to Olly. Probably for the best.
