PARTY LINES
When self-funded Independent candidate Malcolm Wilkes starts waging a
surprisingly successful campaign,
the national party comes calling to offer support. Which includes both funding and a
couple of unprincipled
political operatives with a repertoire of dirty tricks that  threaten to turn what has been
a clean campaign
into a slugfest that could ruin lives.
Malcolm’s response is in line with his intention to “change things,” but soon he
makes an off-the-cuff remark
and starts a media frenzy that derails his campaign and puts a complete
incompetent within a stone’s throw
of being elected. Is it politics as usual? Or can Malcolm make a difference?
