It both attempts to understand why people might be drawn to the BNP and diagnoses the deeper cause of that attraction: the political abandonment and betrayal of the working class by New Labour.The plot is as follows: Pete Case used to be something - a leading Labour Party organizer in the local car factories.

Now he struggles to get by as a decorator as immigrant workers undercut his best mates firm, his son Mark cant get a job or onto the housing list and nobody, from his Labour MP to his granddaughters teacher, seems to care. Then Pete finds unexpected hope: Gina is young, mixed race and standing for Parliament on a platform of helping the local community. She is standing for the British National Party. As Petes rage and despair gradually overcome his longstanding loathing of the BNP, he is drawn into the world of Ginas campaign and finds himself entangled in a nightmare of political machinations that pit his closest relationships - son, best mate, lover - against his longest-held beliefs and newfound aims.
