5.0 out of 5 stars Campaigning Hero of Social Democracy, 20 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent little book which sets out the vital need for social democracy with a big D. Hume starts by setting out the means by which liberal elites instruct their 'inferiors' in a top down manor. Such elites have contempt for popular democracy and the demos whilst at the same time fearing it. Hume then outlines the long struggle to achieve democratic rights such as voting and how such rights have been resisted by those in power. he then describes the EU project in all its undemocratic glory. If I have a slight criticism it is that while Hume rightly praises Tony Benn's courageous role in resisting the steady loss of democratic rights to the EU he does not mention Peter Shore's role. Pity. But I thoroughly enjoyed the book andf have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone interested in democracy today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funnily enough I have found Fly shoes either too large ..., 27 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Funnily enough I have found Fly shoes either too large or too small and inevitably have to be returned. These fit my feet perfectly so if you have always wanted a pair of Fly shoes and have had trouble with the fit these are the ones for you. Order your true size.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was invaluable for the visitor and gave the reader a broad appreciation of the fascinating history offered by Genoa. We will be back to Genoa to get further under it's skin - with the help of Mr Walton's book.

The Taint of Midas: Reissued (Mysteries of/Greek Detective 2)
by Anne Zouroudi
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars I thoroughly enjoyed the book, 16 Sept. 2014

I thoroughly enjoyed the book. It read itself in two days flat - indicating how well it was written. There were subtle philosophical messages throughout: Be content with what you have (the fisherman/barber), pursuing wealth rather than happiness is mistaken (the developer).

5.0 out of 5 stars STRONG SONGS, MELODIC VOICE, BEAUTIFUL ARRANGEMENTS., 16 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I recently saw Tom Hickox in Newcastle and had a fine evening. The songwriting is both thoughtful and accessible and his sidekick Justin Quinn fills in the spaces beautifully and yet economically. The combined effect is majestic. Buy it. Enjoy it. Spread the word...

5.0 out of 5 stars BACK TO THE TOP, 1 May 2014
This review is from: TEETH DREAMS (Audio CD)
If anyone really knows THS they love just two albums. First, "Separation Sunday" from 2005 which contained the best overall Hold Steady track Stevie Nix. And then we had "Boys and Girls" one year later which, to date, still represents their finest album. Coherent too. Stay Positive and Heaven were disappointing... So, it is with great enthusiasm that I can say THS finally have their foot back on the ball and have produced and wonderful and varied album. JUST BUY IT... poetry and love.

Buy this. An interesting set of mainly 10 inch records published in France in the 1950's. Nicely presented in original sleeves.

I bought two of these little torches. Both only lasted a few weeks before the bulb failed. New batteries wont solve the problem. Real pity.
