MES delivers the goods again

4 out of 5 stars

Another outstanding production from TMF, with some new classics, including esp:

  • Pacifying joint
  • What about us?
  • Assume
  • Bo Demmick
  • Clasp hands (including choice reference to 'wolverines'...)

It's not often you get a cover of a Move song which is even worse than the original but MES and co manage it successfully here with 'I can hear the grass grow'.

Annoying title

4 out of 5 stars

But that's just coz it's an overblown and pretentious Lennon lyric.

Still, an excellent and compelling read – difficult to assess the veracity of the setting and the policitcal/criminal context (or the WWII episodes) but convincing to me.

Some of fantastical elements a bit irritating at times but overall just about hangs together.

Also he manages to anticipate the title of his next book (which is a bit clever clever if you ask me.

Well worth a punt though!

A refreshing view

4 out of 5 stars

A delightfully sceptical analysis of public pronouncements, political speak, media frenzies, spurious statistics etc etc. Nice critique of relativism and wonderful barbs about those who value their own opinions higher than facts.

Suffers only from being too darned brief.
