Synopsis


Scheming media moguls.


A UK government at war with Brussels.


Newspapers run like propaganda pamphlets.


That's right - it's the 1980s!


Meet Lambert Le Roux, a South African businessman hell bent on acquiring the British press from the foppish, upper-class elite.


It's the revolution Fleet Street hasn't been waiting for.


But can the British people trust a millionaire media man from the Southern Hemisphere with the ownership of their beloved papers?


The answer isn't exactly front page news.
