A general election is imminent and Frank loyally helps his father-in-law with his campaign for the Centre Democrats. This makes Frank fall out with the Unity List. The beer club has established a partnership with Carlsberg over the production of a new beer. The purchase of a pair of shoes, which are far too small, unfortunately gives Frank problems while at an important meeting with Carlsberg's board. Moreover Claire's neo-religiosity reaches distressing new heights. Frank's only consolation is a lovely champagne saber.
