Chris Thompson
 

‘bless this country, God bless karaoke and God save the Queen.’

It’s karaoke night at The Albion, a proper East End boozer and the unofficial home of the English Protection Army. Paul runs the pub, girlfriend Christine rules the roost, and little brother Jayson hosts the karaoke.

On the eve of a demonstration tensions are running high. The mosque want to build a community centre next door and the English Protection Army aren’t happy. Paul is going to fight this tooth and nail, but he knows the public won’t listen to a bunch of hooligans. Meanwhile, younger brother Jayson thinks this could be his time to shine. Family or not, this is England and it’s time to take it back.

Albion examines the turbulent rise of the new far right in modern day Britain. When they embrace diversity, just how far can the far right go?
