5.0 out of 5 stars Another cracker from Nadine!, 27 Nov. 2014
This review is from: Run to Him (Kindle Edition)
Nadine delivers once again! This short story is un-put-downable!

Nadine takes us back to Liverpool in 1964 with evocative writing that really immerses the reader in that special time in an important city.

If you enjoyed The Four Streets and Hide Her Name you will love Run to Him. I hope there will be many more 'shorts' from Nadine!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's superb!, 8 Nov. 2014
I really enjoyed Hide Her Name. You don't necessarily expect someone who does Nadine's day job to be able to write that well but she is certainly a compelling story teller. I sense that her background in the real world – growing up in working class Liverpool – has really helped give an edge to this gripping story and its characters.

This follow on to The Four Streets is shot through with darkness but I also found plenty of moments filled with humour, warmth and charm.

Can't wait for the third instalment in the trilogy now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Four Streets, by Nadine Dorries, 23 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great read, especially for anyone who has experienced life on a council estate I would say, or who has come from an ethic minority background, especially the Irish. If only more politicians had any degree of such life experience as this, even for only a week, public money and officialdom would be more expertly guided to help the real needy in life, such as so well expressed in this book. I look forward to the author's next work.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic book – if only it wasn't necessary though!, 15 Mar. 2006
The TaxPayers' Alliance has been getting some fantastic coverage in the media for its low tax campaign, not least due to the publication of the Bumper Book of Government Waste. The book is a comprehensive review of Government spending and how big government leads to high taxes which lead to huge waste and inefficiency. As a taxpayer, it is sometimes painful to read the examples of waste highlighted by Matthew Elliott and Lee Rotherham. It would be nice to think that there won't be a need for further editions of this book -- I somehow doubt it though!


Flat Tax: Towards a British Model
Flat Tax: Towards a British Model

5.0 out of 5 stars A timely & prescient analysis of the case for a UK flat tax, 15 Mar. 2006
Allister Heath has made an important contribution to changing the climate of opinion on taxation in the UK. After almost a decade in number 11, it is becoming increasingly clear to the electorate that Chancellor Gordon Brown's tax increases haven't led to a corresponding improvement in the provision of public services. Mr Heath offers a thorough analysis of the fiscal and political reasons why a flat tax should be seriously considered in the (now fast approaching) post-Blair era and how it could be implemented. This heavyweight study, which includes a foreword by US political and business heavyweight, Steve Forbes, is a must for anyone interested in not only fiscal policy but government/politics and economics as well.
