As Used On The Famous Nelson Mandela

by Mark Thomas

LoveReading View on As Used On The Famous Nelson Mandela

Armed with a fairly flimsy disguise and some worryingly poor accents, Mark Thomas sets off on a
journey of discovery in the company of arms dealers, torture victims, politicians, cops, crusties and geeks. The result is both deeply funny and deeply disturbing. Sharp and entertaining, Thomas reveals the truth of an industry fraught with loopholes, complacency and greed; that allows corrupt regimes to kill, maim and displace, but whose deals are often subsidised by the British taxpayer.

As Used On The Famous Nelson Mandela Synopsis

Mark Thomas is one of the UK's most effective and best-known political activists. His show, "The Mark Thomas Product", ran for six highly acclaimed series on Channel Four. This title presents an account of Mark's rampage through the arms trade, and also looks at the truth of an industry fraught with loopholes, complacency and greed.
