What if the bitter wounds caused by Brexit do not heal? What if the Brexit vote, UKIP, even the BNP and the EDL – what if all that was just the beginning?

 

Joe Newman is the mainstream Labour MP for a traditional, working-class constituency in the North of England - until Momentum try to oust him. Unwittingly they unleash a tide that could destroy not only Labour and the Conservatives - but also every assumption anyone has ever made about what is acceptable in the mainstream of British politics.

 

This is also a study of how political success and personal disintegration can go hand in hand.
