The much-needed manifesto by the Sanest Politician in the Entire Cosmos, from capping the price of croissants at GBP1 to taking over Downing Street. Greetings, life-form! My name is Count Binface. I am an intergalactic space warrior, leader of the Recyclons and three-time British election veteran.

And as part of my overarching mission to control the entire omniverse, I have come to conquer Britain. It’s not that I want to do this – you need me to. Because the one thing everyone can agree on right now is that Earth is in an absolute state.

And of all its messed-up nations, the British are particularly deranged. In this book, I share my story for the first time, my political beliefs and even the occasional recipe, in return for a reasonable – nay, bargain – amount of Earth currency. I also provide an alien’s-visor-view of your past, so that you can learn from past mistakes.

This isn’t the first potted history of Britain ever to be committed to print, but I can guarantee that compared to any others, mine will be the most accurate. If anyone cares to argue about that, which one of us has had access to a time machine? So settle down, grab a beverage, and let’s make your planet Count. ‘Count Binface in his steely, glimmering, elusiveness is both a galactically intimidating – and curiously heartening symbol of the future of British politics – #believeinthebin’ Rory Stewart
