  • 50 People Who Buggered Up Britain

    Quentin Letts

    Product Code: AAMFM
    Paperback
    (1)
    Which fifty people made Britain the wreck she is? From ludicrous propagandist Alastair Campbell to the Luftwaffe's allies, the modernist architects, it's time to name the guilty. Quentin Letts sharpens his nib and stabs them where they deserve it, from TV gardener Alan Titchmarsh, the dumbed-down buffoon who put the 'h' in Aspidistra, to the perpetrators of the 'Credit Crunch'. Margaret Thatcher ruptured our national unity. The creators of "EastEnders" trashed our brand over high tea. Thus, he argues, are the people who made our country the ugly, scheming, cheating, beer-ridden bum of the Western world. Here are the fools and knaves and vulgarians who ripped down our British glories and imposed the tawdry and the trite. In a half century we have gone from end-of-Empire to descent-into-Hell.

  • The Wicked Wit of Princess Margaret

    Karen Dolby

    Product Code: BPLBF
    Hardback
    Celebrate the rapier-like wit of the royal rebel, the late, great Princess Margaret - or 'Ducky' as she was known behind closed doors. Even as a child, Princess Margaret - younger sister of Elizabeth - was noted for her theatrical and witty demeanour. Her nanny, 'Crawfie' described her as a 'born comic' and her sister, now Queen Elizabeth II, remarked that parties were always better with Margaret in attendance as she made everyone laugh. She made John Lennon blush and Pablo Picasso was infatuated with her - and she made no secret of her intolerance for the dim-witted, the disobedient or the boring - and her one-liners are legendary: On considering that Elizabeth would one day be Queen, Margaret's response was one of sincere commiseration, 'Poor you', she told her. Attending a high-society party in New York, the hostess asked politely how was the Queen? 'Which one?' Margaret replied coolly, 'My sister, my mother, or my husband?'

    This book has no claims to be fun or more interesting... In fact, it's so boring it will send you to sleep. There's absolutely nothing that will stimulate the senses.

    It will afford you much sleep and copious amounts of pointless knowledge: from the intricate details of the Belgian political crisis from 2007-2011 to an overview of railway gauges, there's so much for you to absorb while you drift into the land of nod...

    Iain Hollingshead

    Product Code: AVHYK

    Readers of the Daily Telegraph will be fondly aware of the combination of wistful nostalgia, robust no-nonsense good sense and appalled outrage that characterises its " brilliant" (Ian Hislop) Letters page, which if it did not exist would have to be invented. But what of all the letters that were just slightly too wacky, too off the wall, too politically incorrect, to make it for publication? Now the Telegraph gives their authors the stage at last: baffled, furious, occasionally paranoid, and from this hilarious selection of the best we can see that no, none them is alone...
