If politicians ignore you, what can you do? When tragedy derails the referendum on Scottish independence, Robert Castle decides to set up his own political party. Offering power to the people, will his Cafe Politics catch on and transform Scotland?
Book one of the trilogy that imagines a country without politicians, a country governed by the people, for the people. Imagine Cafe Politics and government by referendum where having your say on government policy is as easy as voting for your favourite contestant on The X Factor. The Great Scottish Land Grab is a vision of democracy, a blueprint of hope and optimism.
“In the land of fiction, independence is real. In the real world, Scotland has said no. But in the land of fiction, the Scots have gone one step further and have voted for a land grab as well as independence. Robert Castle intends to fulfil his promise to the Scottish nation, no matter what the cost. Yet again, Mark Anderson Smith has made the improbable believable. Indeed, after reading this, I thought independence would happen! Alex Salmond may have gone but there may be a real Robert Castle out there. Watch out Westminster - according to Mark Anderson Smith, it ain't over yet!” Joy Kluver
“Was looking forward to the second book in the series and it didn't disappoint. Found myself wishing that Scotland's future could really be like this. Another cliffhanger ending, that leaves you wanting to get book three as soon as it comes out.” Mary Douglas
“This book was excellent, very interesting and well put together. I couldn't put it down and it certainly made me think. Well done looking forward to book 3.” Susan McGrory
“Five Stars. Can't wait for the next two books Subtle and profound.” Moira Currie
