Ukridge is a man huge on ideas and short of cash. Take, for example, the time when Ukridge sets up an insurance syndicate with some pals, the success of which depends on one of them breaking a leg. Or his attempts to manage Battling Billson, a boxer who has his own idea of a good fight. There are those occasions where Ukridge has irritated his Aunt Julia more than a wasp in her glove, and those when the cash-flow has sadly dried up to less than a trickle. Down he may be, but Ukridge, complete with his yellow mackintosh and flapping ears, is seldom out.
