It is the year 2013. Britain is in a severe recession and poverty is causing mayhem. There has been a sequence of short-lived hung parliaments and, due to terrorist bombs, repressive measures have been brought in by the power-hungry Government which fall especially hard on British Muslims. Global security is also at risk when an election in Iraq brings in a fundamentalist government and it threatens to nationalize its oil.

This helps secure a majority for his party and Alan Petherbridge becomes Prime Minister.
