Details

'The Octopus' is a detailed, exhaustive study of the burgeoning crime wave initiated and propogated by the mushrooming of international bureaucracy within the European Union. It looks at the faceless men behind everything from Amsterdam-based paedophile rings to fraud by committee in Brussels to the trafficking of drugs, money and nuclear armaments. The unification of Europe hasstirred up a cauldron of economic and fiscal chaos obscured by a scum of paper and statutes and only a mammoth effort of will on behalf of all its member states is going to stop that chaos breaking out to undermine all our futures.
