How did England become a United States of America? And how did Rupert Warner, lately Prime Minister of Great Britain, find himself moving office from Whitehall to a position remarkably close to the White House? We are some decades in the future. Enter the Leader of the House, the Hon Rupert Warner, who has determined to turn against his Prime Minister and to deliver a resignation speech in the House. To Rupert's own astonishment he succeeds in leading the country out of Europe to a higher, finer destiny. Or so it seems at first. With its echoes of 'Primary Colors' and 'What a Carve Up!', '51st State' offers a brilliantly vivid and highly enjoyable satire on the state of Great Britain - and an almost plausible scenario for the future.
