PlotEdit

Alf is fed up with Alec's slowness as a campaign manager. Vera dreams about taking up Mrs Maxwell-Glover's offer and calls Jack a sadist for getting her hopes up. Andy tells Audrey that his gran is out of hospital in Belfast and is being looked after by Liz. Alec takes delivery of Alf's campaign leaflets, which bear the slogan "Alf Roberts - The Family's Champion". Bet thinks it's a dig at Deirdre's marital status. Curly gives Vera a warning for pulling a sickie. Andy tells Jim about Phil's job offer and says he wants it to make his way in the world. Curly attempts to reason with Reg over Raquel doing the fashion show. Reg tells him he's saving Raquel from going on a downward slope and ending up as a Page 3 girl. Emily and Percy canvas for Deirdre, while Alec makes Jack deliver Alf's leaflets. Deirdre is furious to read Alf's leaflet: "I know I can speak for family values and family life, if you listen to some of my opponents you might think that families aren't fashionable anymore." Phil thinks she should retaliate but Deirdre refuses to sink to his level. Curly tells Raquel and Angie that he didn't get anywhere with Reg. Phil tells Jim that Andy can stay at school and work for him in the holidays and weekends. Ken accuses Alf of propaganda and is supported by Phil. A row erupts causing Alec to order Ken and Phil out of the pub and Bet to ban politics in the Rovers. Deirdre is embarrassed by Ken and Phil speaking for her. Joss sees how much Vera wants the Knutsford job and offers to forge references for the Duckworths.
