THIS IS final PART 3 OF 'THE HOUSE OF CARDS' TRILOGY
British Politics after Margaret Thatcher getting even dirtier in this satirical thriller BBC miniseries (ripping Artist unknown):
After Series like 'Yes (Prime)Minister' with a satirical yet mainly playful look at the British System of Government or the crude and less insightful pranky 'The New Statesman' (all available at www.digitaldistractions.org in the 'British Comedies' section) this satirical thriller is a new take on the foulness of the political game, more like an adapted MacBeth of modern times.
The 'House of Cards' Trilogy consists of 3 parts each composed of 4 episodes. It is based on books by Michael Dobbs, a former British politician who had inside knowledge from his time in the Conservative party.
In the 1st Part of 'House of Cards' Conservative Chief Whip Francis Urquhart is disappointed when after backing Henry Collingridge to replace Margaret Thatcher as Prime Minister he is not rewarded with a post in the new cabinet. So Urquhart starts his underhand Macchiavellian game to become his political masters successor as soon as possible. Nothing is to criminal for him to refrain in order to clear his way to the top from impeding obstacles.
In Part 2 (To Play the King) Urquhart is at odds with the new king who fells that Britain should be less icy in terms of social policies. And Urquhart's closest aids loose his trust and pay a heavy price.
In Part 3 (The Final Cut) Urquhart is still Prime Minister but there is
enough resentment in the party itself to get rid of him, or is there?
In any case his former Foreign Secretary who has just resigned is dead
set on challenging his leadership and seems to have some knowledge of
Urquhart's mirky past on Cyprus as a young officer when two native
adolescents were shot under very suspicious circumstances.
But Urquhart will not be defeated without fighting tooth and nail.
