Lent Week 3
It's party conference time and in the leader's hotel suite, the spin doctors are sweating over the Prime Minister's speech. With public opinion increasingly volatile, there are rioters on the streets, and there is panic at the top ...this time it's all got to be perfect. But in the same hotel a journalist is piecing together a scandal so far-reaching that it could keep the party out of power for a generation. Can the story be killed? Can the journalist be bought off? Exactly how far will a government go to save itself? And more importantly, when will the transvestites having sex in the lobby stop spraying pink paint at Her Majesty’s Ministers? ‘Feelgood’ is a hilarious, daring and bitingly funny satire on the politics of spin by Alistair Beaton, whose extensive writing credits include Spitting Image and Not the Nine O'Clock News.
