About The Last British President

The last British president main book cover

The idea for the book first came to me in 2013, during Cristina Fernández de Kirchner’s second term as president of Argentina, when I began to speculate on whether I could do a better job as president.

Her populist policies didn’t sit well with the middle classes, not to mention the protectionism which practically isolated Argentina from the rest of the world.

I had heard the refrain “If only the British had won in 1806…” many times and when I looked into the British River Plate invasions of 1806 and 1807, it became clear that Britain came within a whisker of taking Buenos Aires and the future of Argentina could have veered off in a completely different direction. Perhaps it may even have become a British colony, with the population now speaking English as their native tongue?
