** Characters occasionally do bad imitations of Malcolm's [[BritishAccents Glaswegian]] accent. Never to his face, of course.

** "Just because you two were raised by Scotch wolves." This show proves that threats sound more menacing in [[BritishAccents Glaswegian]]. Ironically, Paul Higgins (who plays Jamie) [[http://www.guardian.co.uk/culture/2007/aug/15/edinburghfestival2007.edinburghfestival1 hates this trope.]]

Added DiffLines:

* SuddenlyShouting: Surprisingly little, considering how much time the characters do spend shouting, but Malcolm Tucker does provide an amusing BaitAndSwitch when asked by a nameless extra to stop cursing so much:
--->'''Employee''': ''[Interrupting a shouting match between Malcolm and the [=DoSAC=] Minister's office]'' Excuse me, could you stop swearing?\\
'''Malcolm''': Oh, I'm terribly sorry. You won't hear any more swearing from us, you MASSIVE! GAY! SHITE! FUCK OFF!

Added DiffLines:

* WouldNotShootACivilian: Malcolm Tucker explicitly invokes this trope when asked, during the Goolding Inquiry whether he was involved in the leak of a civilian's illegally acquired medical records which ultimately led to the man's suicide. Tucker compares political power struggles to a combat environment, and vehemently denies any involvement with the leak, stating that while he's ''totally okay'' with the backstabbing and leaking that goes on behind the scenes, he would never do anything like that to someone who is not actively involved in politics. [[CorruptPolitician He is, of course, lying through his teeth.]]

Added DiffLines:

* UnwantedAssistance: In retrospect, Malcolm's idea of turning Duggan's scrotum into a muppet and using it as the party mouthpiece would have worked a whole lot better than allowing Duggan to continue helping them, if only because the muppet might be able to function more effectively.
