The time is now. Can you do better than Maggie and ride out three terms as Prime Minster and survuve two General Elections? This highly complex strategy game runs along conventional lines of offering a menu of options and problems to be solved. You will have to balacen the books over such matters as VAT, Income Tax, Govt Loans and Contracts, Corporation Tax, Grants to Industry, Public sector spending, Govt wages, Pensions, Unemployment Benefit, Child Allowances, Foreign Aid and interest on borrowing. The personalities involved bring you into constant conflict over things like wage demands. The game is accompanied by a booklet called 'A Pocket Guide To Running Britain'. The text is clearly laid out and responds fast to inputs. This is no toy government game, but a fully blown program that should tax anyone's brain. Overall CRASH rating 76%, machine code.
