Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
I'd really like it to be about the dire state of the UK, and our hopelessly inept government, but unfortunately, Messrs. Blair/Brown have censored any thoughts of free speech or reasoned debate. The way England (and specifically England, rather than the UK) has been sold down the river, and declined morally and socially makes me want to scream.
The British government (and EU) seems wholly incapable of making any decision that doesn't benefit MPs, punish hard workers and reward the feckless.
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
Harlan Coben, Michael Crichton, Michael Palmer, James Herriott,
Kate Bush, Dire Straits, anything by Andrew Lloyd Webber.
If you've not read Crichton, Palmer and Herriott, you really should.
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)

Yeager: Chuck Yeager
