Synopsis


A comedy about the creator of the welfare state.


May 1945. Britain celebrates victory and cheers Winston Churchill.


The people who fought the war want a better world.


But The Labour Party Is Led By A Nonentity - "a modest little man with plenty to be modest about."


He says almost nothing.


He sits in his grey suit and puffs his pipe.


One Wit Remarked: "An empty taxi drew up and Clement Attlee got out."


How can the insignificant, passionless little Labour leader Clem Attlee possibly compete with Churchill?
