Re-elected to the House of Commons, Labour Party member Johnnie Byrne suffers two setbacks: he fails to receive a Cabinet post, and his wife, a Communist, leaves him. The professional failure disturbs Johnnie and he is persuaded to join a left-wing splinter group bent on harassing the prime minister.
One evening, Johnnie's neighbour, who is in love with him, takes him to a party where he meets model Pauline. After a few dates, Johnnie is desperately in love with her and fails to appear in Parliament on the day he is scheduled to ask a crucial question to discredit the government. Pauline decides that marrying a man twice her age is too great a risk, and leaves London. Johnnie is then summoned to a meeting of his constituents who attack him for his neglect.
Failing to win back Pauline, Johnnie receives a surprise offer from his wife suggesting they try again. Johnnie is inclined to accept her offer, but the prime minister offers him a Cabinet post with the stipulation that he remain apart from his Communist wife, Johnnie decides against the reconciliation. Alone and without love or friends, he occupies one of the front seats reserved for Cabinet members. Is it all really worth it?
