The coalition government is in crisis, limping from one disaster to the next. The Prime Minister has a plan. Get the world's finest barber in to give him a new haircut. His defence minister, however, has an entirely different and more compelling plan. Using the all-new zombie-control gene developed by British scientists, the government will harvest an army of the living dead and use it to take over the world.
As a series of gruesome murders takes place in London, and the restless ranks of the Conservative party start to close in on a beleaguered Prime Minister, the zombie contagion is unleashed upon planet earth, the British Empire begins to expand, and Queen Victoria can at last stop turning in her grave. What could possibly go wrong?
