There There My Dear is a satirical novel and a debut work by author Neil Mason.
Imagine, if you will, a former British Prime Minister who appears to be making a mockery of the entire political establishment of Great Britain.
Ex-Prime Minister Harold Connor has been waiting for a quarter of a century to do the right thing.
His own life was destroyed, but then he had nobody else to blame, as the destruction was wrought by his own actions and deeds.
His wife? Gone to her eternal rest.
Harold has lived in the dark and gigantic shadow of the world's biggest political secret.
But, in a way, Harold has kept a secret himself down through these long, lonely years. The secret? Was a somewhat dangerous idea. A desire to put things right should the opportunity ever present itself.
Fortunately or unfortunately it appears that fate, in the shape of media mogul Kyle Andrews, has presented Harold with the opportunity to put things right on a solid gold, diamond encrusted platter.
For Kyle Andrew is beginning to film a new talent show which, it is intended, will discover the next generation of politicians.
But Harold seizes this as the opportunity to put right a great wrong and to do this by make a mockery of the British political system.
But what had happened 25 years ago?
How could it impact on today's political life?
And to what end was Harold Connor manipulating everyone he came in contact with, including his own son?
And when his son discovers the truth, what then?
