As Sir Giles starts his machinations things start to go awry as the whole motorway proposal starts to unravel. With blackmail, murder, mayhem and kinky sex it seems that the whole thing will blow up in someone’s face, especially when a civil servant is sent down from London to assist in any problems. And lest we forget there is always Blott somewhere on the scene, an orphan German, but thought of as Italian, who is more British that most native born Englishmen.
With some satire, a lot of humour, which is mainly farce, read what happens when Sir Giles puts into place plans for something that even he has lost control of.
