The BBC urinates all over Terry Pratchett's grave

Chef

LE
Bladenburg - I bow to superior nollidge, nuancing.

( Just goes to show that my anti PC prejudices pre-date the Great Dissembler in office. )

Chef - It's the one with the D'Regs in .

And the society dinner is in the one where Edward De'Ath finds the gonne....

I bet you could rustle up a Klatchian hot in an instant...... ? Easy on the rats.
Ta for that. 'Men at arms' One of the books I got signed by the author. I've just red the witches trilogy and am rereading Robert Rankin at the moment.

@Bladensburg I was about to start debating/arguing the toss about Vimes and his views on others. Then realised that this is how all the best religious wars start I could almost hear Pratchett muttering.

'It's only a story.'

As long as we both enjoy the books it's fine.

Rankin is an excellent author.

My favourites are:

The Brentford trilogy (5 volumes)
Dance of the Voodoo Handbag
Apocalypso
A Dog called Demolition

A Dog called Demolition would probabkly make a good comedy horror movie...
 
While there is a bit of a dig at diversity quotas in Men at Arms I hate to point it out to you that it was published in 1993 and therefore nothing to do with Blair.
In any case I think the central theme of that particular plot line is pointing out that Vimes' prejudices towards non-humans are often ridiculous and unfounded rather than that the Patrician's orders to recruit them are misguided.
I think Terry took great delight in pointing out that all of his characters are flawed and thus human. Or at least alive.
PC crap has been around since the 60's.

I will have to check but I think there are 7 books in the Brentford trilogy.
Jasper Fforde is also excellent.

He was possibly a little fat in the face for a perfect Rincewind but the woe is me voice perfect.
Sadly, the perfect Rincewind has long passed, Cardew Robinson would have been perfect. Of course, Mackenzie Crook could make a fair stab at it

‘Armageddon; the musical’ (part of a trilogy) featuring Barry the Time Sprout and Elvis is well worth a look.

It's a tradition or an old charter, or something.
