A cracking good read

Had to share this one with the many cynics I spot in this forum....

'Fifty People who Buggered up Britain' by Quentin Letts

A truly cathartic read - wickedly incisive and sparing no punches this is a really enjoyable read which I recommend to you all unhesitatingly

With that title are you sure it wasn't by Quentin Crisp?

Sorry

Cynics? On this forum?

May I ask whether there is anyone in particular who comes to mind?

No; I meant cynics on this forum.

I have just had a look on Amazon, and have already decided to put this book on my Christmas list.

Mind you, there are quite a few people who I am surprised are not listed. Gordon Brown for one. Beeching/Marples for another. And what about King Arthur Scargill.

Maybe Brown is in the Buggering in Progress list?
