This explains why Nicola is head of The Party (known as The Opposition in this universe) and why Robyn (a character not seen since series 2) is still in DoSAC, why both Glenn and Terri are part of the Opposition, why Ollie is actually competent, and why Glenn whitewashes walls twice, both in Series 2 AND Series 3 and both at around the same time.

** Phil also makes a bizarre reference to Jon Snow and "balancing the good and the bad", and in a deleted scene describes the Minister of Dosac as being the equivalent of the Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, which in a strange way, it is.

The Department of Administrative Affairs was eventually folded into [[=DoSAC=]]. And (as far as I can remember) in TTOI, nobody ever ''explicitly'' mentioned Thatcher (probably because of NoPartyGiven), leaving the possibility of a Hacker ministry.

!!Alternatively, ''The Thick Of It'' is same slightly-different Britain as ''Yes Minister''

** If this is the case, then Julius may be a chameleon-arched Master, and perhaps Malcolm keeps Jamie around out of subconscious memories of Jamie MacCrimmon?

The official universe series ends with In The Loop, meaning that Malcolm is still there, as is the actually USEFUL PM, and everyone is fine if relatively stressed.

In The Loop is told from Malcolm's memory of events that happened earlier in that PM's government. Because most of the people he encounters don't mean much to him so he can't be bothered to remember what they look like, he pictures them as people he more recently encounters who share similar personality traits, like applying Olly's likeness to the similar Toby. Notice the characters that Malcolm does care about are the same as the show (Jamie and Sam). He pictures Simon as Cal Richards just for kicks and giggles, like imagining a really uber-masculine guy in a dress.
