9781447259633: Enough is Enough: or The Emergency Government

Enough is Enough revolves around actual events in May 1968. Harold Wilson knows the public thinks he's a slippery liar, the newspapers are out for his blood, and the party which once loved him is now plotting to remove him. Still, he has failed to spot at least two other conspiracies brewing. Bernard Storey, a journalist, stumbles on the rival plots and enters a world of lying and spying, back-stabbing and blackmail, malicious gossip and false intelligence.

Review:

'Enough is Enough does an excellent job on what is surely the best political scandal in modern British journalism: the confused tide of conspiracy, paranoia and corruption that swept the 14th Mr Wilson down the plughole of the 1960s' Telegraph 'A ripping yarn' TLS 'Mark Lawson has written an extraordinary novel ... This is a brilliant evocation of a lost political era, part spy thriller, part an accurate account of a jaw-dropping phase in British politics' Independent 'Catapults Mark Lawson into the front rank of political novelists ... From first to last, the novel is a class act by a writer who knows how to enjoy himself' Sunday Telegraph
