i think he'll survive till the next election. In the same way as the modern labour party works, he has never struck me as someone who would resign for any reason at all.

These people have to be forced out kicking and screaming denying everything all the way (and should be)

Alfred Bester

just curious if anyone else has read any of his books
read the stars my destination (also published as Tiger! Tiger! I think) and have the demolished man on order

found the book very exhilarating and after reading cover to cover managed to start again from the beginning, not something I do often
