No way, Willie-O. Films have to stand or fall on what happens on the screen, not on written analyses of what they are about.
When Blair became PM he actually wasn't that dissimilar to the Hugh Grant movie persona in his mannerisms. I thought Billy Bob looked a lot more plausable as President than Bush does. But then most people do.
Incuidentally, the germ of the PM + Tea Lady plot is presumably an alleged affair between PM John Major and the lady who did catering for Number Ten - which in fact never happened, but appears to have been used as a smokescreen to cover-up the affair with MP and novelist Edwina Currie. As detailed here. Not a patch of young Martine McCutcheon - better known as Tiffany of the soap, Eastenders.
