Gridlock is when a city dies.

Killed in the name of freedom. Killed in the name of oil and steel. Choked on carbon monoxide and strangled with a pair of fluffy dice.

How did it come to this? How did the ultimate freedom machine end up paralysing us all? How did we end up driving to our own funeral, in somebody else's gravy train?

Deborah and Geoffrey know, but they have transport problems of their own, and anyway, whoever it was that murdered the city can just as easily murder them.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Important, topical and politically resonant * Guardian *
Combines passionate espousal of a cause with the machine-gun narration of a stand-up comic, peppered with good jokes and with the energetically managed, funny and violent action of a manic strip cartoon * Evening Standard *
The book is stuffed with funny lines and the lot is more gripping than any tyre advertisement * New Scientist *

“A little bit lefty, but not bad!”

Ben elton was clearly still raging in a world of Anti-Thatcher when he set out to write this novel. this is clear from the way the Money Spinning Oil Giants are made out as the big bad wolf in this novel.
