Returning from years in Germany, I find England in a simmering political crisis. I dive in by joining the Conservative party, campaigning, and doing parliamentary work for my MP. The crisis explodes in 2016 to throw me into personal despair amid the wider ruin.

The scandals of Brexit and the misery of the coronavirus pandemic launch me on an epic journey. I navigate through the mess to explore an ocean of challenges. Friends and lovers lead me to a deeper wisdom in the shared heartbeat of our human life on Earth.

PERFIDY is a documentary memoir with a universal message. Dramatised yet factual, it paints a vivid portrait of Britain during the Brexit and pandemic years. Its truth and insight bring a historic period in British politics to life in an extraordinary story of folly and fate.
