A Very British Coup Summary

A Very British Coup: The novel that foretold the rise of Corbyn by Chris Mullin

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. As MI5 conspires with the city and press barons to bring Perkins down, he finds himself caught up in a no-holds-barred battle for survival. 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.

As fascinating as it was entertaining when it was first published ... it's disturbing how much still resonates. If Corbyn seeks a cautionary tale, he need look no further. -- Val McDermid * New Statesman *
Rattles along with speed and great credibility * The Times *
A delicious fantasy... crisply written and the story belts along * Observer *
A world of power struggle in Downing Street, Fleet Street, Whitehall and Washington * New Statesman *
A spiffing read... calculated to grip blue-rinsed Conservative ladies and make Socialist eyes pop * People *
Chris Mullin's book is the first for some time that I have stayed awake to finish -- Ken Livingstone * Labour Herald *
A curious Molotov cocktail * Financial Times *
Entertaining propaganda * Literary Review *
A very effective political thriller, which hasyou on the edge of your seat from start to finish * Oxford Mail *
Entertaining to anyone interested in contemporary politics * Glasgow Herald *
...a brilliant concept that opened the way for my own novels -- Michael Dobbs
Compulsive reading * City Limits *
