#3053207 More news about the Collectors' Fair at Cougar Park

Posted by Geoff Lee on 08 January 2015 - 10:30 AM

Yes, South Stand Loiner, I will have those books you want. Both are novels set against a strong though quite different rugby league background..

.

"Rugby Football. A United Game" is based on the idea what might have happened if the Northern clubs had been in the majority around the time of the great split in 1895.

"The Glory and The Dream" is a novel set in the early post war period of rationing and shortages about a young lad growing up in South Lancashire wjth a dream to follow his Dad's success playing rugby league. Interestingly Roy Chesters fictional town of Garton is not very far from my fictional town of Ashurst.




#2986411 A very dodgy international trade deal is looming

Posted by Geoff Lee on 01 September 2014 - 08:17 AM

The Transatlantic Trade Investment Partnership (TTIP) is a very sinister trade deal currently being discussed in great secrecy. It is a deal that would give the multi national global corporations the legal power to sue individual governments for millions of pounds if that government took action that affected their profits.

It would for example encourage US health care companies  to sue any future British government if it tried to stop the privatisation of the NHS. Similarly with the railways.

Last Saturday over a million leaflets were given out across the country by around 9,000 volunteers but it would appear that there was little or no publicity about this in the papers or on the TV.
