English As She Is Spoke by Jose de Fonseca & Carolino
English As She Is Spoke by Jose de Fonseca & Carolino
5.0 out of 5 stars Great way to spend 60p, 29 Jun 2014
This will give you a jolly good chuckle, but no-one will be surprised to hear that it is very much subject to the law of diminishing returns. Still, at half the cost of a newspaper you can't go wrong. I gave five stars very much in the context of price; had I paid a fiver I'd not be so happy.
Braun Oral-B EB25-4 Floss Action Replacement Recha&hellip by Oral-B
5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding price, 29 Jun 2014
You can get this sort of price at the supermarkets if you buy at the right time, but what if your old heads need to be replaced at the wrong time? Very pleased indeed.

As to the heads, I checked out the alternatives carefully and feel sure this is the one to go for, the one with the best combination of qualities.
The Blunders of Our Governments by Anthony King
The authors, as you might expect, make strenuous and generally successful efforts to keep the thing apolitical. Ridiculous blunders are made by both parties.

And that is what the book is about - mistakes that are ridiculous, that should never have been made. Sadly, while there are a number of prescriptions given to reduce such blunders in future, I'm not sure how effective they would be. Blunders go with democratic government as wastes go with imperfect competition.
