Pre-Occupation

Divorcee and psychotherapist Spencer Pandy addresses a conference on Family Negotiation while attempting to no-platform his own daughter - and then has an argument about Gala Pie.

Divorcee and psychotherapist Spencer Pandy takes his newly radicalised, feminist daughter Tilly to work where he’s addressing a conference on Family Negotiation.

Tilly’s attempts to explain her unusual school uniform result in a sharp dressing-down from her father who is unaware that his radio-mic is broadcasting to a shocked auditorium.

Meanwhile, Spencer’s ex-wife Tina is attempting to negotiate her own position with writing agent Camilla, while looking after the next-door-neighbour’s six-year-old Ruby, who has arrived in the character of racist and sexist Northern pensioner Mrs Roberts. Camilla is awestruck by the directness and attitude she witnesses and offers Ruby a book deal.

Spencer’s attempts to alleviate his day’s frustrations via the Internet are thwarted when he accidentally types 'racy’ search terms into his Facebook status rather than Google.
