Europe's occupied by the Chinese. George is king and off his head. Harbourmouth FC have signed the nastiest defensive midfielder in the league. Empty headed art trash celebrities drool around London town. Cambridge University is home to the most devious terrorist on Earth. Peace loving anarchists get their heads kicked in. The Daily Mail still thrives. It all ends in a big bang on the Moon. More
Earth and Moonbase 2050. As London wilts under Chinese occupation, a Canterbury Tales type cavalcade of individuals attempt to make sense of the world and further their careers.
Amongst them, a Moonbase catering assistant, the debauched King George VII of England, fruit and vegetable shaped automatons, a couple of ex-popstars, an unpleasant footballer, the editor of The Daily Mail and a host of other equally imperfect characters who have to face and suffer the conniving shenanigans of A.N.D., a ruthless nihilistic gang of terrorists, and the protests of O-R, a noble band of pacifist revolutionaries.
Contemporary art, politics, the world of football, finance, the monarchy are all shorn of their airs in this entertaining tale of pretension and power.
The plot weaves and threads through the lives of the tale's intriguing individuals as their fates coincide and collapse, culminating in a dramatic catharsis up there on that white globe circling the Earth.
Political-satirical, savage, funny.
It's the future, it's now.........
