5.0 out of 5 stars Everyone should read this book, 3 Jan. 2016
This book is a real eye-opener; everyone should read it. Read how the weight of the state descends on someone just for flagging up the fact that we do have an increasing problem with radical Islam - and politicians, plus police, don't seem to want the public to know. See how the powers that be arrest TR on a charity walk, keep him in prison longer than the law allows, intimidate his wife and children, and lock him up with violent Muslim prisoners in the hope that he would be seriously injured - as he then was. Follow Tommy's journey from young scally to unbelievably courageous freedom fighter. How can this be happening in Britain in the twenty-first century?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read on more than one level, 10 Nov. 2010
This review is from: Fighting Bull (Hardcover)
"What do you want to read that for?", said my other half, "Farage is a twit!"
Well, some of this book may be light-hearted, but most of it is spot-on on our current problems and is especially good on our constitution and common law, on which topic most of our MPs seem woefully ignorant. Farage has the rare knack of being able to put his finger on exactly what is going on amidst all the Euro-obfuscation and what we should do about it. I thoroughly enjoyed reading his story and finished by asking my other half, "Can you point to anything he says that isn't accurate, then?" And he couldn't.
This book is quite serious. It deals with how, and by whom, we should be governed. It sums up a lot of the unease many feel as we seem to lurch further into a European dictatorship run by a Franco-German engine ("a French rider on a German horse"), which thinks nation states are evil and should cease to exist. Should be read by anyone interested in where we are going as a country, and why. And, yes, it's entertaining too. The best books make serious points in an engaging way, and this certainly does that.
Farage's book poses the question: what's so wrong with wanting to govern ourselves?

Brussels Laid Bare

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most important books of today, 7 Nov. 2010
This review is from: Brussels Laid Bare (Paperback)
To be honest, I wasn't initially sure about this book - I mean, we all know the great European project is corrupt, wasteful and condones fraud, and that no politician will ever take it on, don't we? Why enrage yourself reading any more about it? You just shrug and try to think about something else, don't you?
But, however much you think you've grasped this topic, this book is an absolute eye-opener. The unprofessional, bullying, dishonest way business is conducted there is absolutely horrifying and kudos to Marta for exposing it.
The bit where Neil Kinnock summons Marta (her attempt to introduce proper accounting procedures was making her very unpopular) and tries to bully her by telling her they can move her to another job anywhere, any time, with or without her consent, will stay with me for a very long time. (Marta calmly asks why they have called her to this meeting, then, if they can just go ahead and do anything they want). I don't know how she kept her sanity.
One cannot help but form the opinion that this outfit is not just misguided and inefficient (although it is both of those things) but could actually be run by criminals, for criminals. No more shrugging for me. Why should the taxpayer be asked for billions upon billions more, when it is all just poured into a gaping black hole?

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring, 12 Aug. 2009
I was looking forward to reading this, after all the hype and recommendations. I'm a Wallander fan and hoped for something similar.
Gave up after I'd reached page 175, and still nothing had happened...

5.0 out of 5 stars At last a teapot that works!, 17 Jun. 2008
Been looking for a teapot for many years that will ACTUALLY pour.
This one not only pours with no dribbles whatsoever, but is beautifully designed and manufactured. Nice comfortable handle, smooth edges to stainless steel and a satisfying solid feel without being heavy. Hinged lid fits nicely and does not rattle.
Design is a modern take on a classic look.
Now - time for a cuppa.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good balanced overview, 30 May 2008
What Nigel Lawson presents here is a good, balanced overview of BOTH sides of the question, plus his comments on the economic issues raised. He basically sums up the current thinking of many experts in a concise, digestible form, and then invites the reader to think hard about their conclusions.
How sad that Britain has become such a prejudiced, ignorant country that such a level-headed contribution to the debate was not "allowed" to be be published here.
Some of us were taking an interest in climate cycles in Britain's universities more than thirty years ago, so we have seen how the subject developed before it was hijacked by special interest groups.
Time was when scientists would look at all the data, formulate a working hypothesis, then continuously test and modify it it against the fresh data that was always coming in - rather than starting with a theory and cherry-picking the facts to fit.
