Hacker will lead Britain into a totalitarian dictatorship, perhaps by accident.
Severely doubtful considering that Jim is made PM during... well, the exact year is confusing but we'll just assume that it might be the end of the early eighties to the middle of the eighties. Despite Thatcher and Blair's lengths of serving, Jim might only be around to the late eighties, maybe early nineties before having to resign for health reasons, since the main trio all share birthdates with their actors. Jim might also have suffered from leukemia the same as Paul did. But being PM in 96? No way.
Administrative Affairs eventually gets folded into what becomes Do SAC. An aged Sir Humphrey and Malcolm Tucker teaming up on someone? Epic.
- An added possibility is that Malcolm Tucker was Sir Humphrey's protege, though I can't quite recall the latter's opinions on Scottish people.
- To keep history on track.
- We know that the series take place in an Alternate Universe where, instead of Margaret Thatcher, the British PM during the 1980s was the unseen PM of Jim Hacker and then Jim Hacker himself. We also know that the Conservative and Labour Parties exist and are prominent (they've been mentioned once). Finally, Hacker is clearly a complete Centrist. However during the episode in which he becomes PM, Hacker is described as the leader of the "centrist" wing of his Party. If he were a Conservative, that would make him clearly right-leaning, and if he were Labour, that would make him clearly left-leaning. In this Alternate Universe, there existed in the 1980s a third major Party, the British Centrist Party (probably encompassing the real world Liberal Democrats and the right wing of the Labour Party as well as the left wing of the Tories). And that Centrist Party won the elections during the 1980s. Interestingly, since that "centrist, pro-EU, pro-free-market" stance is very similar to Blair's New Labour and Major and Cameron's Tory Party, it's very likely that Hacker's Centrist Party remained in power since the 1980s, throughout the 1990s and 2000s until today (possibly with Centrist PM's Major, Blair and Cameron).
- This troper thinks this is 100% the case - in the same way the DAA is invented to give scope to write episodes that touch all subjects rather than one real life area (similar to Do SAC in TTOI), Yes Minister was written in the middle of a faily solid Tory Period, so to have a credible minister that the script can poke fun at left and right, it had to be from a middle ground.
