London 2012: the Olympics are underway but David Camerons UK is in crisis. Political tensions between Scotland and England are rampant, with the row over university tuition fees exploding into mass riots. Rob and Kate are two creative writing students, in love, and caught in the cultural crossfire. But after Rob wins a major writing prize and returns north, Kate drifts onto the very streets destined to tear them apart.Glasgow 2016: after the break-up of the Union, Rob drowns his sorrows every night in the same bar. He has always been a great people watcher. But when one particular gentleman enters the pub he suddenly feels somebody is watching him. Whats more the narrator thinks he knows the Englishman better than any other punter in the place. Is it because he owes Robert something or that their paths have somehow crossed before? As the evening progresses what becomes clear is that more than just their pasts are at stake but the very future of two great rival nations competing for supremacy in the New Europe.The English Student is both a political thriller and a tragic love story set in a slightly futuristic and dismantled Britain; a place shrouded in a new and terrifying form of English Nationalism and populated by an increasingly determined band of Scotsmen, hovering in the political wings - and set to retaliate.
