Abridged version of Ian Bone’s Bash The Rich released as an ebook as a ‘tribute’ to the passing of Margaret Thatcher. This edition includes, Bone’s early years, skips the time he spent in Swansea as a student and anarchist activist and concentrates of the founding of Class War in an attempt to open up a second front of inner-city civil disobedience during the miners’ strike. Bone’s aim was to topple the Thatcher government and to declare war on the rabid Tory free market doctrines – Class War.In 1984.The Sunday People branded Ian Bone ‘The most dangerous man in Britain’. They weren’t far wrong. From the inner-city riots of 1981 to the miners’ strike and beyond, the butler’s son and founder of Class War was indeed a greater thorn in Margaret Thatcher’s side than the useless blatherings of the official opposition. Class War WERE the REAL opposition! It was Ian Bone who linked the inner-city rioters of Brixton and Handsworth with the striking miners. It was Bone who The People spotted rioting with miners in Mansfield and attacking laboratories with the Animal Liberation Front. He was accused by The Guardian of being the man behind the 1985 Brixton Riot. But that was only the half of it… In the 1980s, Ian Bone was THE anarchist in the UK with a half brick in one hand and an incendiary pen in the other. How did the child who lived in a fabulous English mansion and saluted the AA man from a Rolls Royce come to be the man who famously promised to Bash the Rich and leave Hampstead a smouldering ruin? This is no dry tome destined to gather dust in leftie bookshops. Against a background of all the major outbreaks of disorder of the time, this is a startlingly honest, funny, warts ‘n’ all scream of rage from a gutter-level anarchist prepared to fight ‘by any means necessary’.
