“Sus” by Barrie Keeffe.
Set on the eve of the Thatcher victory in 1979. The sus laws made it legal for police to stop and search anyone – purely on suspicion.
Election night 1979. Two detectives on the graveyard shift in an East London police station place bets on which party will win. Delroy is brough in ‘on suspicion’. The interrogation takes all night. The country wakes up to a new Conservative government.
Sus is a powerful and politicised cry against the still-current threat of institutional racism. Keeffe pulls no punches with his depiction of a corrupt world which looks all too familiar today.
