There had been no tanks on the streets. No one had gone to the firing squad […] It was a very British coup.
I found out about “A Very British Coup” while searching for the origins of House of Cards. A very fascinating novel that deals with the complexities of governance. With a clear depiction of all the forces in power that collide, how and why.
Do you happen to know of a country in the Western World with a leftist government? That dislikes the IMF, the EU and NATO? That seeks funding from alternative sources? Then you should read this book, even though the ending was not of my taste. The novel had to end somehow anyway. Come to think about it, no, I like it how it ends. It reminded me of 1984.
