Yes Minister Meet James Hacker MP, Minister for Administrative Affairs, as he attempts to make the world of officialdom and administration make sense. James however, also has his own agenda as he tries to keep his head above political water. Also meet Sir Humphrey Appleby, an unflappable civil servant and James Hacker's nemesis who is part of a political machine that has no gears, only brakes. Yes Prime Minister After coming to power on the back of protesting against European plans to eradicate the British sausage, new PM Jim is swiftly up against bigger problems than before. He deals with cabinet reshuffles, trying to stop small wars and just maybe rescuing a sheepdog from Salisbury Plain. Sir Humphrey, now Cabinet Secretary, is even more determined than ever to prevent Hacker doing anything new.
