Perfidious Albion

£8.99

In Edmundsbury, a small town in east England, fear and loathing are on the rise. It is the near future; Brexit has happened and the ramifications are real. Grass-roots right-wing political party ‘England Always’ are fomenting hatred. The residents of a failing housing estate are being manipulatively cleared from their homes. A multinational tech company is making inroads into the infrastructure. Just as social tensions appear to reach crisis point, masked men begin a series of ‘disruptions’, threatening to make internet histories public, asking the townspeople: ‘What don’t you want to share?’.

In Edmundsbury, a small town in eastern England, fear and loathing are on the rise. Brexit has happened and the ramifications are real.

Grass-roots, right-wing political party ‘England Always’ is fomenting hatred. The residents of a failing housing estate are being cleared from their homes. A multinational tech company is making inroads into the infrastructure.

A controversial tweet; a series of ill-judged think pieces; a riot of opinions – suddenly Edmundsbury is no longer the peaceful town it had always imagined itself to be.
