My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Well, when you strip away the potty mouth and the political posturing, this did actually remind me of being a teenager in Scotland during the Thatcher years. Which isn’t always a good thing, but all the pain of being a music obsessed youngster longing after unsuitable women came home to roost. I enjoyed the basic story after I started to skip the political extracts. The characters are broad and could have come from any scheme, but that actually makes them all the more real. After all, stereotypes have to start somewhere. Good but not essential.
