(1940-    ) UK Conservative politician and author of many thrillers, most notorious in the early twenty-first century for his imprisonment on a count of perjury; in his Near Future sf novel, Shall We Tell the President? (1977; rev 1985), the American president who may or may not be informed of a plot against his life is Edward Kennedy, whose gun control laws are opposed vehemently. The revised edition is transformed into a sequel to The Prodigal Daughter (1982), at the end of which Florentyna Kane, newly elected American president, announces gun control legislation; she is the president in the 1985 Shall We Tell the President? who is under threat.
