Political satire. Peter Mannion is told to launch his coalition partner's new 'Networked Nation' policy. However, Peter doesn't even know how to right-click a mouse.
Peter Mannion, the Secretary of State for Social Affairs, is told to launch his coalition partner Fergus's new 'Networked Nation' policy at a school. Peter doesn't even know how to right-click a mouse and would rather be celebrating his wedding anniversary, but Stewart Pearson won't hear otherwise. So Fergus is left in charge of drawing up a list of staff redundancies, and Terri Coverley is pretty sure she can make Fergus's hit list if she works hard at under-performing, and finds help from an unexpected direction.
Peter's policy launch is a disaster, and the disaster recovery plan is even more of a disaster.
