The New Few: Or a Very British Oligarchy

Somewhat pretentious waffle mixed in an attractive style of writing.
The only theme that I came away with is the formation of a Political Oligarchy as if this is something new.
No remedy is proposed that might substitute people of worth for the PR, Journo, Legal and Union scrimshankers that we have in Westminster, Cardiff, Edinburgh and Brussels. We badly need a leaven of Engineers, Employers, Doctors (of Medicine not Sociology) and others of experience.

This book is a good response to Rainbow Diet which is a book of confusing messages about the treatment of cancer. Ernst , a trained Medical Doctor, is concerned that Homeopathy,and some Alternative Medical Treatments which have no measurable curative powers beyond the Placebo Effect, are being given precedence over conventional Medicine by some people.
However the attack on Chiropracters, who do do some good for back pain, particularly,
I believe to be misdirected

'Hurricane' is repetitive and not as well researched as it should be.For example the huge role of Sir Thomas Sopwith in the inception and production of this Battle Winner, which saved our Country, is scarcely mentioned.
Likewise the practice of the controllers to 'vector' the fighters onto the SAME course as the incoming bombers is not explained; head-on meetings were the exception, while the book implies that they were normal.

Sawdust Millionaire is fun but not as mischievous as the man portrayed. I suggest a sequel,called 'Warts an All'

A reasonable product, but it did not work on arrival. Return conditions and guarantee were unreasonable ,so I took it to pieces . When it got a new battery it worked. It is still working but the guarantee is busted, so I cannot recommend to anyone else. This is the first AMAZON product that has given me grief.
