. . . There are from agian roughly 1908 a series of books postulating a German invasion of the home counties (SArf EaaasT). One that springs to mind is "The Battle of Barking". Unlike "War of the Worlds" the British usually lose.

Do you mean "The Battle of Dorking"? Published 1871, so quite a bit earlier than you thought, and written as a direct consequence of the Franco-Prussian war.

The Battle for Barking is a documentary about a member of the BNP trying to elected as an MP.

Not sure zorro is getting an answer to his question but he has certainly sparked an interesting discussion!
