Why Vote Leave

5.0 out of 5 stars Get Out While the Getting is Good, 14 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Why Vote Leave (Hardcover)
This is a superb book if you want to know why we should leave the EU and have arguments to hand for those deluded people who feel we should REMAIN. Mr Hannan has been an MEP since 1999 and knows it from inside out. His thesis is based on this sound experience. He is willing to be put out of his MEP job after all those years of viewing the corruption, forceful lobbying (there are 25,000 lobbyists in Brussels with pharmaceuticals certainly not the weakest), Euro-Corporatism (how the Volkswagen scandal developed), deals for jobs ( e. g., getting Mr Schulz voted in as President of the Parliament in exchange for his supporting J. C. Juncker for President of the Commission). The book also explains how the European Parliament is such a weak body, how the UK truly lacks influence (and we have seen that in how Mr Cameron returned from his talks with virtually none of the reasonable reforms he wanted). It includes verifiable data on trade, on the organisations pushing for staying IN receiving grants and subsidies. I have read other books on the In/Out but this is the clearest, most succinct, convincing, cogent and thorough. I can not recommend it highly enough.

This review is from: The In/Out Question (Paperback)
This book is SO unbalanced it belies its title. I therefore offer as antidote the reading of Daniel Hannan's VOTE LEAVE

Love the tracks released as singles, bit disappointed in the others - not so powerful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book, non-fiction, take your time over it., 12 April 2015
Very enjoyable and incredibly well-researched story about Clara the rhinoceros. Informs you how gentle and victimised rhinoceroses are - please let's all help keep their habitat and stop the evil poaching. Rhino horns do not make a man more sexy - for goodness sakes! Get real, China.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting product but disappointing for my use, 29 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Delivery very fast. It was brand new, as stated on site, so in excellent condition.This item is such a good idea. However, my Sony Walkman does not fit comfortably in it as the elastic bands which hold the player in place obscure the buttons. Thus, I am disappointed but as it was very cheap the expense of returning it would not be worth it.

3.0 out of 5 stars good but......, 27 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
....although the socks are a very nice quality and navy colour and go a good way above the knee, which is what I wanted, they don't stay put. As soon as I started walking they began to fall down so I had to get some elastic bands. This is not very comfortable. Perhaps with tights they'll stay in place better but I don't always want to wear tights so on that score I'm disappointed.

Well, I don't think anyone needs any persuasion about buying a recording with Daniel Barenboim of this magnificent Beethoven piece. And this recording, which I first heard on Classic FM is the best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good, 6 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This window vac is a great invention but it does have its limitations. The main thing for me is the difficulty of doing the outsides of second+floor windows with it. I don't like to use ladders and trying to reach from inside I find tricky with the vac. I think they do a long-reach version but I'm reluctant to spend the money as I have a feeling I probably couldn't handle it well as I'm a short person without much strength. However, I'm not sorry I purchased the one I did.
