The Clitheroe Prime Minister

Imagine Britain with a working class welder as PM
A non fiction book by

"I laughed so much, tears ran down my legs!"
"Brilliant, naughty, refreshing fun!"
"What a hoot!"

Britain's in a right bleeding mess. None of the politicians speak for the ordinary, working folk. Until Jim Arkwright suddenly appears that is. This egg and chips eating, beer loving welder from Lancashire says what he bloody well thinks, and to hell with the consequences!

Through a dodgy video on Youtube, Big Jim becomes an overnight sensation - the British public can't get enough of his straight to the point attitude, and his brutally honest, forthright opinions.

But Big Jim can't really be arsed becoming Prime Minister, he's got enough on his plate as it is.

Can the British public convince him to give it a try?

This is a laugh-out-loud comedy adventure that ordinary, working class folk can't put down.



More about this title;
The Clitheroe Prime Minister is the debut novel by Steven Suttie, and the author's only satire work to date. The basis of this story is set around a hugely unlikely scenario where an ordinary, unknown working class man from Lancashire suddenly attracts a great deal of attention to his political beliefs, totally by accident - and the resulting media attention does his head in.

The majority of the book is set in the town of Clitheroe, a small rural market town in the heart of Lancashire, at the gateway to the Trough of Bowland.

The book has been misunderstood by a few readers, who have missed the point of the story. The point was, to have a bit of fun and take the mick a bit. No right minded author would seriously suggest that grandparents should not be allowed to wear tracksuits, unless they were participating in a race at the time, would they?

The Clitheroe Prime Minister has been a number one best seller in Amazon UK's "political humour" category on a number of occasions since March 2015. The author is not frustrated that a few readers have bought this believing it to be an extreme political manifesto, where naughty children are put underground to scrape sewer walls with their fingernails, but it does make him smile.

Plans for a follow up to The Clitheroe Prime Minister have not been ruled out. In that one, Jim will probably make it illegal to call a barm-cake, muffin, oven-bottom, bap, roll, cob or a bun anything other than its proper name, which is "tea-cake."
