‘The Time is Not Yet Ripe’ by Louis Esson

Doris, daughter of the incumbent prime minister, Sir Joseph Quiverton, has news for her father – she has just become engaged. Much to Sir Joseph’s dismay her fiancé is none other than an opposing candidate in the forthcoming general election – and a revolutionary socialist to boot. Is Sir Joseph in danger of losing both his reputation and his majority in parliament?
