Welcome to London. The future. Global warming has meant walls now must surround much of the Thames to control flooding. In a bloodless coup Brigadier has taken all authority, disbanded the Parliament, reinstated the titled class, and put Britain under marshal law. Rising to power on a wave of fear, promising to control the terror bombings and put an end to misfits and do nothings, the Brigadier plans a re-education of the masses and a proper British life for all.
