The story, set in 1945, concerns the Earl's family, whose son Lord Pym is standing as Conservative candidate at Lister Castle. When Lord Pym loses the seat to the Labour candidate the household becomes at odds with one another, after all Lister Castle had been Conservative for over 200 years. However, Lord Pym decides that maybe he does not share Conservative values after all and when Mr Cleghorn, the Labour winner resigns, Lord Pym decides to stand as the Labour Candidate in the by- election! This infuriates his glamorous young American fiancee ,June Farrell , and so she puts up the money for their Butler to stand as Conservative candidate against him! Mayhem ensures, although not for the Earl of Lister, he has many important concerns of his own including how to keep the rabbits off his garden!
