    Approved (in hardback)

  3. 3

    Not a humour or a crime paperback in sight. All very serious.

    The Oppression Continues says:

    A good selection. Of course, none of them will end up in the public library in Labour-controlled places like Waltham Forest, where the left wing ideologues in charge are not interested in the public finding out about any of that.

      err no, it’s simply coz they arent available in Urdi, Swahili, Sanscrit, and of course Esperanto

    Peston’s How do we fix this mess -must be top of the fiction charts – 450 pages on bashing the bankers – 10 short references to gordon brown. Best bit is about brown trumpeting growth 8; weeks before all went tits up. But if you do run out of toilet tissue RP’s tome will help you out.

    No wonder they know nothing about ordinary folk.
    For all the racist ones they should try, Roll Of Thunder, Hear My Cry. by Mildred D.Taylor.
    It should be compulsary reading for ALLl British people to get an understanding of what it is like to live in a society where colour and race are issues. Then they may understand what humanity SHOULD be like.
    I would say also to read as a good tale, Mr Darcy, Vampyre. Makes a good laugh out of a classic.
    But reading about Thatcher or another politic is just boring. Bet they have the Thatch book open, but another book inside. Look like they are serious, but books with too many words and no pictures may be too much for many of them

    Excellent choices – some were on my list for birthday presents this Monday which I gave to my husband last week. Some not, so have downloaded the file so I have books ready for the Christmas present list!

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
