    On the afternoon of May 11, 1812, Spencer Perceval, the all-powerful prime minister of Great Britain, was fatally shot at short range in the lobby of Parliament by John Bellingham, a Liverpool businessman. Perceval polarized public opinion: Revered by some and hated by others for his fight against the lucrative slave trade, he domineeringly kept Britain at war against Napoléon and was driving her into war with the United States despite the huge economic drain of each, raising taxes to new heights to finance his decisions.

    Yes Prime Minister was the equally funny and successful follow-up to Jonathan Lynn and Antony Jay's hit series Yes Minister. At the end of that series the well-meaning but incompetent Jim Hacker (Paul Eddington), steered by the invisible cunning of Sir Humphrey (Nigel Hawthorne) finally made it to Number Ten, on the back of (so to speak) the Eurosausage.
