How do you write a synopsis for submission to a British publishing house?

I'm attempting to sell a novel right now directly to a few British publishers (Canongate, etc.) though I'm focusing most of my efforts on getting an agent.
The problem: I'm a Yank, and we don't really do the whole synopsis thing over here, so I have no idea what I'm doing, beyond, say: keep it short. All previous attempts sound fairly asinine. Any hints or good templates?
Thanks very much.
