Are you very right wing?

If you are very right wing and enjoy a good laugh, I can HIGHLY recommend this book. It is all the unpublished letters sent to the Telegraph that were too risque or forthright to publish. I don't think I have seen my DH laugh as much in all our years of marriage. A brilliant stocking filler.

I enjoyed Am I Alone in Thinking...these make terrific "downstairs loo" books! I don't think you have to be very Right wing - maybe just a smidgen??

Yes perusing it in the toilet would be a very suitable place, so if enraged you can tear the pages out and use for your convenience

I don't know if I'm right-wing or not! The political party I belong to says 'Not left, not right, just English' and that's what I am.

I have, however, got a wicked sense of humour!

Nope, not even a little bit.

I'm not sure anyone on here would dare answer 'yes' to that question confused

I am apparently!!!

I'd love to say that I'm a fully paid-up member of the Hang 'em and Flog 'em brigade, but someone might take me seriously.....hmm

If that was a reply to my post anno, thank you! The calm voice of reason as usual. smile

'calm voice of reason' - moi? There has to be a first for everything but thank you kitty. smile

No. Many told me in the past that one day 'I would grow-up and become right-wing' - but it's not going to happen grin

Must buy the book for some of those UK relies who said that - who've always been right-wing and getting worse by the day shock

You know, I honestly do not remember writing "No" on this thread! But maybe it was after a good, long, lunch out...however, I still probably think the same.

I will look for it as you have obviously found it funny. Humour is humour and I wouldn't think of the politics behind it that's for sure.
