Re: Yep, quite enjoyable. Probably better back in 1990s when this stuff was fresh.
It's a bloody good 'fictionalisation' - the 'Wilson plots'/Colin Wallace stuff etc is the juiciest political scandal period in recent history, but hardly gets talked about - I'm sure there's still loads more to come out - probably in about 60 years. Could be a companion piece with 'a very British coup' for illustrating the limits of our 'democracy'.
Also I'm sure you will have seen it, but 'Land and Freedom' would be right up your street if you haven't (and 'the wind that shakes the barley' for that matter)
