Storyline

Nicola only wants the press to warm to the idea of the Fourth Sector initiative, likening it to a cake, but when she claims the prime minister, absent at a conference in Spain, is the right man "for the moment" it sparks off whispers that she may be putting herself forward as party leader. Tucker steps in to sidetrack her but, when Terri confronts him with a few home truths, it leads to his having a virtual breakdown. Glenn considers putting himself forward as a possible minister, promising Ollie a seat in his cabinet. Written by don @ minifie-1
