Division

The greatest political nightmare of our time.

ECU Day, when the whole European Community converted to a single currency, was the day the British people believed would never come.

With an element of anarchy that is too organised for the police to control, public unrest rapidly escalates.  Mass dissatisfaction with a government - and a bureaucracy - subservient to Brussels and no longer representing the will or interests of the nation, provokes an atmosphere of impending social and political breakdown where nothing and no one can be trusted.

Isolated and unassertive, the Prime Minister shies away from deploying troops to put down the growing insurrection, while conspiracy theories abound at MI6 headquarters.  And a power vacuum opens up, for those with the strength and ambition to exploit it.
