** Olly isn't above these either. There's the time where mocks special needs children... in front of Glenn, who has a special needs child. And [[CrossesTheLineTwice keeps going after Hugh calls him out]]. When he mocks Glenn over Malcolm punching him in Season Three, saying Glenn being "not technically a woman." Malcolm shoots Olly a DeathGlare and tells him to zip it.

* CassandraDidIt: The Inquiry pinned all the blame on Malcolm for [[spoiler: Tickel's suicide]] in Season 4, but it could have been avoided if anyone had paid attention to his advice and warnings. Malcolm urged Nicola to "embrace our friend Mr. Tickle" and criticize the Government's treatment of him, but she refused to even mention it publicly until [[spoiler: Tickel was already dead and Malcolm had her cornered]]). He [[spoiler: leaked Tickel's medical records]] to show that the Government was mistreating someone vulnerable and courting disaster, but the Government wouldn't back down from its policy and the Opposition never called them out for it... Even if he deserved some blame, Malcolm was the only one who'd been right about Tickel and didn't deserve to be the Inquiry's scapegoat.

*** This wasn't quite a lie when it came to Tickel, though. Malcolm, remember, was in Opposition at the time Tickel was protesting the Government's policies. Therefore their interests were aligned. Malcolm's target in [[spoiler: leaking Tickel's medical records]] WAS the government, not Tickel... Malcolm wanted to make the Government look bad, and the leak showed that they had been "picking on a man with a history of depression."

* FauxAffablyEvil: Most characters are fully aware that Malcolm is a complete and utter bastard. Despite this, very few are immune to his charms.

*** In the same episode, it's a source of some frustration to Jamie that Cliff's own attempts at such a speech to announce that HesBack and standing for the leadership of the party just end up becoming endless moaning and whining about how Malcolm Tucker fired him from [=DoSAC=].

* [[invoked]]DudeNotFunny: ** Steve Fleming's ill-advised [[http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/7371959.stm Josef Fritzl]] joke goes down like a lead balloon. When ''Olly'' is making the "eeeesh" face at you, you know you've gone too far. ** Similarly, Adam shushing Phil's bad taste remarks after the news of [[spoiler: Mr Tickel's suicide.]] Adam wasn't above mocking [[spoiler: Mr Tickel when he was alive]], but clearly considers Phil's behaviour to be a bit beyond the pale. ** Olly isn't above these either. There's the time where mocks special needs children... in front of Glenn, who has a special needs child. And [[CrossesTheLineTwice keeps going after Hugh calls him out]].

* GirlyRun: Alpha male Malcolm has one. This will come as no surprise to anyone who has seen ''LocalHero''. So does Fergus.

* CastingGag: Armando Iannucci admitted he cast Tom Hollander as Cal "The Fucker" Richards partly as an in-joke for fans who'd seen him playing Simon Foster in ''InTheLoop''.
