* LandslideElection: Roz's election. It's such a landslide it borders on [[MohsScaleOfSciFiHardness soft science fiction]], as 54% of the vote for a non-established third party is ridiculously outlandish considering that out of all UK elections under universal suffrage, only ''once'' did the winner gain more than 50% of the vote, and that was in '''1935'''. If such a result would be placed in an AlternativeHistory work, it would immediately be laughed out of existence as the epitome of AlienSpaceBats.

to:

* BritishPoliticalSystemUsefulNotes/BritishPoliticalSystem


Airing in 2006, ''The Amazing Mrs Pritchard'' was an English political drama truncated abruptly by the economic downturn of that era. The story followed the titular Mrs Roz Pritchard, an erstwhile shop manager, who became Prime Minister almost on accident, after being thoroughly disillusioned by politics when a Labour and a Conservative candidate for her local [=MP=] get in a fistfight outside her market. "I could do better than you!" she exclaims, and does. Forming the Purple Alliance, she runs for [=MP=] herself, as a normal person fed up with obtuse politics and politicians. Naturally, for a main character at the beginning of their series, she is outrageously popular, and even becomes Prime Minister!
