Ugly Rumours

A Book by

Taking its title from the band which Tony Blair formed at Fettes College, this play is a satire on New Labour. Once upon a time Tony-boy and Gordon were happy. Then came power, but sadly it meant that only one of them could be chief executive of the old firm. Behind the smiles lies a mountain of sulks. Envy strangles their friendship and fear eats their souls. But suddenly angels appear from on high in the shape of two spin-doctors and some quack remedies. Will the nation heave a sigh of relief? Is New Democracy safe?
