Malcolm makes things difficult when an outside adviser arrives to inspect all the departments, and enlists his colleagues' help in getting rid of him. Meanwhile, Hugh is upset to discover that everybody is aware the Prime Minister's wife does not like him - a blow to his plans for a policy announcement that will impress her husband.
In the midst of a chaotic office move, Hugh accidentally sends an expletive-littered email to an eight-year-old girl leading to a front page story in the national papers. His day quickly goes from bad to worse when he also 'accidentally' lies in front of the Education Select Committee, leaving Malcom to clean up the fallout.
