Harry's Last Stand: How the world my generation built is falling down, and what we can do to save it
Harry's Last Stand: How the world my generation built is falling down, and what we can do to save it

5.0 out of 5 stars I wish EVERYONE would read this book!, 24 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We're at a crossroads in time right now, especially in the UK, and Harry gives the most heartfelt and honest account of what lies ahead if we let apathy lead us down the road of wholesale privatisation.

Harry's generation lived through the harshest of times for the poor, where poverty was rife, healthcare was only for the wealthy, and you were lucky if you could survive the winter. After the second world war, times were still hard, but Atlee and Bevan had a vision for the future, a future which was inclusive of every citizen, a future where no man should die because he's fallen on difficult times.

Ever since this nation was changed, for the better of the people, one 'leader' or another has tried to dismantle this good work and return to the 'good old days' when the rich had it very good through birthright, and the poor had little or no opportunity to improve themselves, and simply worked until they died. One, Margaret Thatcher, managed to beat down the Unions and kill off the spirit of the working man as a collective and changed Britain into what it has become now. We've seen privatisation after privatisation, and now we're seeing the beginning of the end of the NHS if we don't act to stop the Right Wing parties from exploiting there "Health and Social Care Act 2012" to ruin and sell off the NHS piece by piece to the lowest bidder. Anyone that believes that the Conservative party, or indeed UKIP, want to keep the NHS as a public asset is horribly mislead, much of the funding that the Conservative party receive comes from Health Insurance firms!

We must act in the 2015 election to save what the noble generation built up out of the ashes of conflict. They fought the Nazi's to stop fascism from spreading across the face of this planet, and yet at this moment in time, we're letting fascism run riot under our noses, slowly but surely eroding and undermining our rights as human beings.

Please vote Green, or Labour, in the next election. They have your interests at heart (more than) the other major parties. I remain skeptical about all politics but the Green MP, Caroline Lucas, was charged when protesting against Fracking - someone who stands up for what she believes in - we need more MPs like her, not MPs that want to line their pockets with dirty money, printed using the blood and sweat of the poor.

So, yes, a must read!

Great book, helps you to get to grips with UX design, however, I was hoping for a book on web design whereas this book focuses on a mobile app.

Happy with my purchase - not sure if I might've preferred a case which opens top to bottom instead of left to right, as this is harder to open than ideal. Still, a good quality case and protects my phone great!

Not the greatest fan of this genre of music, but after hearing it over and over again on the radio, it's grown on me to the point that I had to buy it!
