Alistair Beaton’s satire on modern politics is set on the eve of the Prime Minister’s speech to his party’s annual conference. With public opinion increasingly volatile, there’s panic at the top. This time it’s all got to be perfect. Sinister and obsessive press secretary Eddie and young speech-writing aid Paul are desperately trying to finalise the finest speech the PM will ever give, as anti-capitalist riots rage in the streets below. But Eddie’s manipulative skills are to be tested far more by the gradual revelation of a scandal that is so far-reaching that it could keep the party out of power for a generation. Can the story be killed? Can the investigating journalist – Eddie’s ex-wife! – be bought? And exactly how far will a government go to save itself and come up smelling of roses?
