Who will speak for England?
by Lena Worwood
Publisher: Sea Lion Press
Alice is a girl with her dream job, at the centre of the political heart of the nation – the English Parliament in Oxford. Admittedly, her role in parliament is a caterer, and her nation is just whatever odds and sods were left over when the various English towns and regions got their devolved assemblies. But she's proud to be part of an organisation that allows England's voice to be heard. The problem is, who is speaking, and who are they speaking for?
'Who Will Speak for England?' charts the story of Alice, her flatmates, her boyfriend, and assorted hangers-on in a world where questions of political alienation and national identity are poised to shake up the country's political establishment on a fundamental level.
