The unnamed protagonist of 'My Resignation' is a former senior manager in a government-run organisation. On retirement he sets out on a new career of voluntary and charity commitments, but quickly becomes upset at some changes being made to his old firm. This led to frequent letter-writing to MP's and government officials - with little real success. Driven to despair, he decides to stand for the new Scottish parliament, where he feels that he might be able to pursue his grievances better. He narrowly fails to win a seat, but his campaign attracts the attention of a rich, titled and influential individual, who offers him support in the next Westminster election, not too far away. The deal, as well as personal support, offers him some supporting candidates, and their surprising success allows him to form a new Party, the Federal UK Alliance.
