Two episodes from the political satire about Alan B'Stard, a politician with no integrity, no scruples, and the biggest majority in Parliament. In "Happiness is a Warm Gun," Alan goes to extreme methods to conceal his tax fraud, take care of a blackmailer, engage in a sexual dalliance, and advance his political career. Alan's wife Sarah thinks she's found her "Passport to Freedom" when she inherits some shares in a profitable company and now can divorce her loathsome husband. But since this could cause B'Stard his political career, he'll do anything to stop her.
