“You don’t subdue people by taking
everything away at once. You chip away at things, slowly sculpting the system
you want or need, or you control the flow of information so nobody realises the
scope of what’s happening. That way, everyone gets used to each measure before
you introduce the next.”



In 2030, a journalist tries to explain
to his 17-year-old daughter how Britain has ended up being ruled by politicians
reluctant to give up their self-anointed positions of power. The media is
tightly controlled, 30,000 people are held in prison camps and private security
forces carry out the brutal needs of the government. The majority of the
population conform while struggling to get by in an economy which has never recovered
from the financial meltdown of twenty years before.



As the conversation recounts more
than three decades of changes, it’s clear their own family is not immune from
the cruelty The Central Cabinet and their allies believe is necessary to
maintain control and keep democracy’s replacement, The Stability System, in
place.
