Year on The Sauce, A
Brendan Montague left Fleet Street to pursue his passion: reporting. But can bloggers take on bankers, conglomerates, polluters – and win?
Journalist Brendan Montague turned his back on Fleet Street to dedicate his life to a single passion: reporting. One moment he was running up expenses at The Sunday Times, the Daily Mail and the Sunday Mirror. The next, Lehman Brothers collapsed. It was time to cast an investigative spotlight on bankers, polluters, arms manufacturers.
Brendan set up the radical news blog, The Sauce. But the political landscape remained as still as a millpond. Were his lofty ideals of reporting the collapse of capitalism and the dawn of a new world delusional? What would this muckraker find in the grubby reality around him?
The Sauce exposes Russian nuclear waste barons, breaks the Vestas occupation story and shreds Tara Palmer-Tomkinson's first novel. The blog takes on High Court judges, the News of the World, gangsters, neo-Nazis and even graffiti artist Banksy.
A Year on The Sauce is a limited edition collection of stories from the most edgy radical news blog in the UK.
