    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!

New Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond has big ambitions in his first meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu today:

“I came to bring this conflict to an end.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
