Woven into the child Sean's narrative of fear and loathing is the voice of his older self, quiet, almost broken, and seemingly resigned to having become, like it or not, middle class.

Synopsis

'Judas Iscariot's here, look. Here comes Judas Iscariot...'


Nine-year old Sean has never seen anything like what happens on the day Margaret Thatcher takes power and his grandad discovers his uncle voted for her. So begins the start of a family secret and the end of Sean's idyllic childhood in the industrial Midlands-until, one day, deciding that someone's got to stop the train of destruction, he sets out for revenge.


A heartbreaking and timely story of a moment of national crisis as felt by one family, How I Killed Margaret Thatcher delivers a devastating English twist on the dictator novel.
