On the first anniversary of the Scottish independence referendum, a new tell-all book will lift the lid on the tactics and tensions behind Better Together and the subsequent general election campaign that left a kingdom united but a country divided.
Due for release on 18 September 2015, Project Fear by Joe Pike delves deep into the nail-biting back-room operations of the referendum’s ‘No’ campaign, examining the striking shift in Scottish political attitudes and its effect on what turned out to be the most unpredictable election in a generation.
Based on over fifty off-the-record interviews with those at the heart of the action, the book takes the reader behind the scenes, exposing the real story of Better Together and the fallout that threatens Labour’s very survival as a party of government across the UK.
With fresh revelations about the events that sent shockwaves through British politics, this book is a must-read for those who voted Yes and No, as well as anyone looking for the inside track on the campaign that continues to affect British politics.
'Shocking, riveting and hilarious. The Scottish Thick of It.' – Owen Jones, Guardian columnist
