Three Wastes of Space. And the books they wrote this year

A few gems from earlier in the year I failed to post on.

Melanie Phillips write another piece of tedious drivel to go with Londonistan (while saying nothing new). Most normal people of course wouldn't be seen dead reading anything by Ms Phillips, so we get professional danger men to do the job for us and report back. Here is John Crace's "Digested Read" of The World Turned Upside Down.

Much the same goes for Blair's A Journey (or The Toad Goes Ever On And On). Insofar as anyone is remotely interested in a failed ex-politician's opinions, it's likely to be because he was responsible for so many wars, and most especially the one in Iraq. So here is a detailed review of his chapter on Iraq. See? It really wasn't worth buying the book to learn Blair is still a compulsive liar with no morals, was it?

Then of course President George W Bush published his memoirs Decision Points. Here is a story about Bush which deserves to be much more widely known, as it gives a real insight into the man's character.
