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

    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.

    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!

Gyles Brandreth writes in his memoirs:

“Sunday, May 10, 1998

Early start: appearing on Breakfast With Frost, to be broadcast from 11 Downing Street. The Chancellor [Gordon Brown] is grouchily amiable, but so earnest — and still biting his fingernails to the quick.

After the show, he took us upstairs to his flat. He lives above No 10, while Blair and family are in the No 11 duplex, which is bigger and more like a proper house.

I was intrigued that, when he took us into his bedroom, the Chancellor rather ostentatiously opened the built-in wardrobes, as if he wanted us to see the women’s frocks that were hanging in there.

They looked quite large, but I don’t think they belong to Gordon. I assume they belong to his girlfriend [Sarah Macaulay, who he later married].

I presume he was keen for us to know that he has one — and that she’s not a ‘beard’. I don’t think he does anything without calculation.”



The British media are Hunts says:

Now the SNP know how UKIP voters feel all the time.
