John Walsh’s political satire has ignited heated debate, at sold out cinema screenings, and looks set to expose the next big scandal in politics: MPs who are not doing the job they are paid for.

What started out as a documentary about a rookie Tory candidate, soon became far more controversial when Walsh discovered that Sir Stuart Bell, Middlesbrough’s incumbent Labour MP, had all but abandoned his constituency.  In a tenure spanning almost 30 years, Bell had not held a single surgery in the past 15 years and was said to spend most of his time living in Paris.  Setting out on a mission to track down Sir Stuart (using some highly inventive and humorous investigative methods), Walsh’s discoveries become more disturbing at every turn.
