Photo Article - through the keyhole, whose books are these?

When I visit my dad, he urges me to take away one or two of the zillions of books in his house. Naturally I want to please him and do as requested but I am equally conscious that the Mrs reckons that our house in Bristol has too many books and that my suggestion that she bin her sociology books to make way for more of mine is not a runner. And now Joshua is collecting book after book as well...

The solution is to take boxes of books to the Greek Hovel. Some I have read some I keep knowing that one day I will read them. Others are there so that guests at the Hovel will have a wide variety of reading material. I have designed the hovel to have plenty of book space as you will see in due course.

Most of the books now sit in boxes but one box broke and thus future guests can see a bit of what is on offer. Uncle Chris Booker on the EU, Dom Frisby on Bitcoin (someone might be interested, surely?), books on oil, a Wilson biography, Gore Vidal, a David Lodge trilogy which now seems oddly dated though it is not that old,  my fellow Christ Church reject and Hertford scholar Evelyn Waugh and of course books on the Mani and Greece. plenty to enjoy in the years that lie ahead.

Greta Thunberg and the Emperor’s new clothes

Project Greta Thunberg is a fraud. I do not blame the poor 16 year old Swedish girl who predicts that we have just months to save the planet from irreversible global warming, for she is quite obviously very unwell and also being manipulated. She is part of a fraud but right now the great and the good simply sit back and bask in the glory of the liberal media as they admire Emperor Greta’s new, planet friendly, clothes.
