Spotlight Review

The cast of Pravda, July 2018

Scheming media moguls. A UK government at war with Brussels. Newspapers run like propaganda pamphlets. That’s right – it’s the 1980s!

Meet Lambert Le Roux, a South African businessman hell bent on acquiring the British press from the foppish, upper-class elite. It’s the revolution Fleet Street hasn’t been waiting for. But can the British people trust a millionaire media man from the Southern Hemisphere with the ownership of their beloved papers? The answer isn’t exactly front page news.
