Wartime Courage: by Gordon Brown

#1
Yes, he is at it again and chooses to publish the paperback version of his dribblings on a subject he knows nothing about at the most inappropriate time possible.

Really did think my contempt for this horrible man could get no lower but, once again, he has exceeded my expectations.

But you can pick up one of the (many) remaindered hardback versions for £2.36.

I'd rather wait till I see it in a charity shop - then at least I could be certain I wasn't lining his greasy pockets.

I love the reviews - 'This book refused to stay on the nail in the smallest room, despite repeated attempts to keep it there. The perforations are almost none existent making removal of pages difficult. By far the most disconcerting aspect is that if you happen to read a bit, you soon become convinced that it has already been used.'

superb.

I thought this was quite good in response to the pish drivel review praising the book:

Most of the reviews on this book are by people who clearly haven't read it. They attack the author. One can filter out those predictable comments. This review is the mirror image. The reviewer has also not read the book, yet undeterred offers a review so fawning and creepy that it can cause a bilious attack. And what on earth does ".. in that it is a society whereby some of the older generation are heroes who are enobled (sic) by the writing of this book. " mean? Despite an inability to fully parse the garbled syntax the suggestion appears to be that it was worth fighting WW2 so that the Dr Brown could later write about you. If so, that is the gravest insult to the "ennobled" heroes in quite a while.

Just got round to reading all the reviews on the hardback version and the very first review is laughable. Stalin would have been proud.

(Even so, would suggest bucket & mop on standby)

"It is amazing that within what must be an incredibly hectic schedule and
an all embracing family life, that Gordon Brown has found the time to write this book. Written with heart- felt compassion, Gordon deals with
the war with the type of humanity and warmth which could be expected from him.

He is clearly very moved by the war and this comes across in the book, compellingly so. What is striking is Gordon's ability to relate to events which happened so many years ago, and his empathy is omnipresent.

In a materialistic world as it is today, the very theme of this book in honouring those who were brave in the Second World War is so telling of Gordon's wider vision of Britain. Those who fought in the war would find it fitting that a Prime Minister remembers their fight and knows the significance of their sacrifice in that it is a society whereby some of the older generation are heroes who are enobled by the writing of this book. "

I posted that on the other thread and I'm still trying to get rid of the puke stain on the rug. :roll:

I thought that the book was going to be a tale of derring do by the PM. How the cruelly disabled PM fought bravely on in the face of all adversity to see off the posh officer types in the General Staff. How he would brook no resistance in committee as he single handedly forced soldiers to pay for their meals. How by sheer oratory alone he inspired the nation to send food parcels to our beleaguered troops outside Stalin.... er I mean Kabul. And how - in his finest hour - he reduced our once great Armed Forces to humilating penury by cutting the ammunition budget. "Never in the field of human conflict was so much harm done to so many by so few".

Another book on Courage from a man that has none of his own.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful book by an awful man

I suspect that most people who have written reviews of this book haven't actually read it and I have to admit I haven't either.

Shocking, the nerve of the man...

This book is a disgrace,

Gordon Brown is the most incompetent and inept politician of modern times.

1.0 out of 5 stars

What does this fool know about courage?

well, what does he know?

Answer - absolutely bugger all, so it was ghost-written (badly) for him.


1.0 out of 5 stars

useless

this fool writing about courage is like harold shipman doing care of the elderly.he just doesn't "get" the subject.

1.0 out of 5 stars

Inane garbage from a lying thief

He really must have some courage, or perhaps it is just plain stupidity, to dare to produce this trash. Peter and Jane is more in-depth.

1.0 out of 5 stars

Morally Bankrupt

I can't believe he has the nerve to write such a book considering his role in underfunding the armed forces.

1.0 out of 5 stars

But he does not have the courage!

With this great country in the middle of the worst economic crisis since the 1930's,we have to hope that Gordon Brown takes at least some direction from these brave men and women...

1.0 out of 5 stars

Oh the irony!

Another Brown book on 'courage', you have to laugh. I wonder how much courage it takes to orchestrate vile smear campaigns against your political opponents?

Maybe some daft buggers will misread the authors name and think it by Dan Brown.....then go out and buy the book expecting a 'Very Good Read' at bedtime......

"Who is this Gordon Brown...?" they wail...... "I want me money back!" :p

These reviews are excellent
Ironic, isn't it, that a man completely lacking any backbone has written this book? A man who has generally disappeared when the flack is flying. A man who finds it acceptable to 'phone Susan Boyle but never calls the family of those killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. A book utterly devoid of anything new to say written by a man who has contributed nothing but disaster to Britain
:lol:
