My long awaited book, “The Normal Curve” has a new name “Bah, Poo & Piffle”. It sums up, in an entirely legal way, my feelings and views on politics, politicians, journalists and the whole 24/7 piffle factory which forms most of the news verbiage today. The book argues that party politics is outdated and explains exactly why politicians are rubbish at decision making. It also makes a few suggestions as to what we should do about the whole system of government from which we currently suffer.
I needed to get the title out in the world before Boris hijacks it, hence the advance notice, the world (and Boris) has been warned!
Sadly, I missed my targeted November 2014 publishing date and therefore the January 2015 Political Book Awards. The insatiable market for political reading fodder leading up to the May 2015 election will just have to make do with the first 3 chapters. I missed my target due to my grade 8 flute exam taking priority over a book that will change the world (ahem). Next May, I am hoping for a minority government as this will be best for the people. Why? Policies will be decided more slowly and one by one as different minorities hold the balance of votes.
Chapters 1, 2 & 3 will start appearing on my blog soon. Don’t worry about missing them, I will let you know when they start appearing. The other 14 chapters are almost there but will take another month or two.
The rest will be e published by some lucky publisher, as yet unnamed (because they all keep saying things like “Go away, who on earth are you?” or “Thank you but your excellent work does not fit our current profile.”) I now know how the Beatles felt when Decca turned them down 😉
Anyway, I wish you all a very Happy New Year of Moaning and groaning at the antics of the political classes.
