Huge book

34/52 for the group 2018 Weekly Alphabet Challenge

This week's theme was: H is for Huge

I ordered this book online and so had no idea how thick it was until it arrived! Fortunately it has excellent reviews and it is supposed to be a gripping read. It's a lightly fictionalised account of the political and cultural events in the run-up to the first referendum on Welsh devolution. That referendum failed to achieve anything, but we did get devolution and a Welsh assembly at the second referendum in 1997.

And now interest in and support for full independence is growing, spurred on by Brexit. Little did the Tories realise what they would unleash when Cameron foolishly agreed to a referendum on whether to stay in the EU or leave.
