About Crisis? What Crisis?

The year is 1979.

Jim Callaghan's Labour Government has a working majority of zero.

Parliament is in deadlock.

The country is crippled by strikes.

Management-union relations are at an all-time low. The IMF has agreed a financial bailout for Britain, but on the condition that punitive wage freezes are implemented across the public sector. The IRA is a source of constant fear, and the National Front is on the march.

This is a world familiar to those who were there – but it seems to have got even worse. You are right there in the thick of it.

Margaret Thatcher's Conservatives have tabled a vote of no confidence against the government. You and your fellow parliamentary advisers have been gathered in a neglected office building, away from the prying eyes of the press, to find a way of averting disaster. The clock is ticking, and who you choose to work with can make all the difference.

Can you end the deadlock and get the country back to work? Or will chaos reign and the government fall?
