More an allegory than a novel, Visitors describes the impact of beings from a distant planet on the political, economic and spiritual life of Britain and the world.

A year into office and the Prime Minister's only bonus was frustration. The swelling demands of welfare and security were like juggernauts, demolishing his reforms and forcing him to spend his time on damage limitation. To make matters worse the economy was going into reverse.

The PM knew the signs and they made him shudder. Then the Visitors arrived. At first they were treated as illegal immigrants and arrested - the Prime Minister thought the story was a hoax - but when he met these visitors from another world, who were very similar in appearance to humans, he was deeply impressed. They had a presence about them and clearly their civilisation had high technical skills to be able to navigate through space and land on earth. But where was their spaceship, he asked. Orbiting the earth invisibly, was the reply. Meeting the Visitors and asking them questions about how their society was organised, the Prime Minister began to realise here might be some answers to the questions which were currently troubling him and other governments.
