Fletch said he’d come to the right place. a pris­oner on e-wing had just passed O-level Span­ish. Name of Gomez. Mean­while, Tory MPs are be­ing ques­tioned by po­lice over al­leged elec­tion ex­penses ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties. Min­der beat them to it. In an episode called The Bal­ance Of Power, arthur stands for elec­tion to the lo­cal coun­cil, only to find him­self in­ves­ti­gated by Cheer­ful Char­lie Chisholm.

al­though arthur wins, he is dis­qual­i­fied from tak­ing his seat af­ter it emerges he’d been brib­ing vot­ers with boxes of choco­late, well past their sell-by date.

ev­ery­body back on the bat­tle bus!
