When Fred tells Alf King of Myrtle's idea of his getting Elected onto the Council and Police Authority, Alf is aghast. Until Fred tells him (inaccurately) that that will make him a 'Boss of the cops'. Aided by Eleanor's Ladies Group, some Regulars and even Martha, Alf wins a massive victory beating the Governments Candidate into a bad third with another independent coming a good second. But DS Cuthbertson is also aghast at Alf getting onto the Council (he reveres all politicians)and even more when he learns of Alf's plans for the Police Authority. Enlisting the Home Secretary's aid (she sets up a Focus Group), they solve nothing Alf is keen to solve all the area's Housing problems in a few days, he is bamboozled by Officials. The Focus Group is recalled but can thing of no way to stop Alf till Tarquin (the Home Secretary's Personal Secretary)produces a brilliant solution. But to Cuthbertson's fury it means Alf 'gets away with it' yet again.
