So angry at the state of politics, so distrustful of the politicians on offer, local supermarket manager Mrs Pritchard stands on an Independent ticket at the General Election, determined to make a point.

She's a breath of fresh air; she speaks the language people have wanted to hear for so very long. The country's voters, previously apathetic at the options available, turn out in their millions and elect Mrs Pritchard in on a landslide. Which is where her problems really begin.
