Simon Foster is a British politician who is an expert at floundering, political jargon is far from his speciality. When he accidentally announces on national television that 'war is unforeseeable' he immediately goes to the press to rectify his remarks and unwittingly makes comments far worse than the original.
The government try and take some of the heat off Foster by side-lining him and sending him to America on a fact-finding mission. Soon Foster finds himself as a pawn in a game between a secret war committee, the American government and the US armed forces.
From Armando Iannucci the maker of The Day Today, I'm Alan Partridge and The Thick Of It.
