FILM: A VERY BRITISH COUP- A Socialist UK Government in 2017
A very special event to end a very monumentous- and disorientating- 2016. A film looks at WHAT COULD HAPPEN IF BRITAIN ELECTED A SOCIALIST GOVERNMENT? Unlikely? The recent political and media onslaught against Jeremy Corbyn is not without precedent; Life imitating art? In these times of political upheaval, who knows. Calling all Corbynistas, Progressives, Socialists...and of course, Greens.
A Socialist government would have popular support. But the Establishment would be fearful ... and seek to both contain the pressure for reform and do away with the reformists.
Gripping from the outset; what makes this drama so compulsive is the plausibility. I have an uneasy feeling that the situation this film portrays is more prophesy than entertainment.
