In 1984, the Sunday People branded Class War founder Ian Bone 'the most dangerous man in Britain.' They weren't far wrong. In Bash the Rich, Ian Bone tells it like it was. From The Angry Brigade to the Free Wales Army, from Grosvenor Square to the Battle of the Beanfield, from the Stop the City riots to the miners' strike and Bashing the Rich at the Henley Regatta, Ian Bone breaks his silence.
But how do David Niven, Keith Allen, Rik Wakeman, Douglas Fairbanks Junior, Cynthia Payne, George Melly, Flanagan and Allan, Yoko Ono, Pope John Paul and Lofty from Easteneders fit into the story? Why did Gregory Peck send Ian Bone a get well card?
This is no dry tome destined to gather dust in leftie bookshops. Against a background of all the major outbreaks of disorder at the time, it's a startlingly honest, funny, scream of rage from a gutter-level anarchist prepared to fight 'by any means necessary.'
