Stanley Johnson discusses his latest political thriller which imagines the backstage skulduggery that might have gone on in the run up to the Brexit referendum.
The ex MEP and staunch Remainer, whose son Boris was a proment Brexiteer, talks to Channel 4 news presenter Jon Snow at Cecil Sharp House in Primrose Hill tonight at 8:30 with all proceeds going towards the ongoing funding of Primrose Hill Community Library.
His first thriller in decades, the Regent’s Park resident’s topical book Kompromat (Oneworld £12.99) imagines covert Russian influence to swing the referendum result in favour of leaving the EU. Stretching from Russia to the UK and America the cast of characters include world leaders, spin doctors and journalists with publishers hailing it “a unique peek under the dirty doormat of politics”.
Foreign Secretary Boris famously staged a bid for the Tory leadership in the post Referendum wake of David Cameron’s resignation so perhaps there was insider knowledge.
