Ex-steel worker Harry Perkins has led the Labour Party to a stunning victory, pledging to remove American bases, take public control of finance, and dismantle the press monopolies. The Establishment is horrified, and will stop at nothing.
Against the odds, former steel worker Harry Perkins has led the Labour party to a stunning victory. Now he’s going to dismantle Britain’s nuclear warheads, bring finance under public control and dismantle the media empires. But the establishment isn’t going down without a fight.

Described as ‘the political novel of the decade’ when it was first published, A Very British Coup is as fresh and relevant now as it ever has been.
