NEW EBOOK - Make your own Teepee: A creative project you can do at home or at school [Kindle Edition]


Who wouldn’t want a Teepee in their garden? I can’t think of anyone.
A tent of many uses. Obviously somewhere for the kids to play {Millie aged 3 moved her kitchen in 10 minutes after she had applied the first paint to the canvas.}
I sit in there in the quiet of the afternoon and write or read in it’s soothing calm, the shape of which, like a spire, inspires me.
My wife takes refuge there when yet another episode of “The Big Bang Theory”, funny though it is, is replayed for the 18th time and I do the same when another recorded, contorted plotline is unfolding on “Coronation Street.”
Making one is also a creative and interesting way to spend family time, then family and friends’ time, in the long hot summers that we all hope for.

Dr Lee Rotherham: The question is not Brexit, but Brentry

Bretwalda author Lee Rotherham has an article on Conservative Home.

“The purpose of electing a government is for it to govern. It is manifestly clear that no elected British government is now in control of its own house. Far too much governance has been conceded over the years to an unelected bureaucracy in Brussels.”
So writes Sir Bernard Ingham in the foreword to my latest publication for the excellent Freedom Association – Manning the Pumps – and in so doing demonstrating how egregiously he was overlooked for David Cameron’s accolade of “greatest living Yorkshireman”.
What else may Downing Street have missed? On the Europe issue over the past several years, evidently much. UKIP’s rise has been neither unpredicted nor unexpected, while the Conservative Party has developed a reputation for managing expectations over EU integration, rather than forthrightly wedging wooden footwear into the spinning cogs.

NEW BOOK - The Battle of Towton

NEW BOOK - The Battle of Towton

A book about the largest battle ever fought on English soil - the Battle of Towton, one of the key turning points in the Wars of the Roses. .
The murderous Wars of the Roses had already seen dukes, earls, lords and thousands of commoners butchered as two branches of the royal family struggled to gain firm control of the crown. The struggle came to a head at Towton, Yorkshire, where Edward Duke of York with 30,000 men faced Henry Duke of Somerset with 35,000. The battle that followed proved to be especially vicious as scores were settled and blood flowed like rivers. The result determined England’s history for a generation.
This book brings an exciting new look to the Wars of the Roses. The course of the campaign is given, but the emphasis is on the Battle itself and the men who fought there. There are detailed analyses of weapons, tactics and strategies, tactical diagrams explain how the troops formed up and moved, and a study of the commanders. The course of the battle is followed with the aid of maps, relating to the ground today. The aftermath of the battle, its effects and importance to the progress of the war are then described.
The “Bretwalda Battles” series has been running with increasing success as printed books and as ebooks for five years.

Contents
Chapter 1 The Wars of the Roses
Chapter 2 Leaders at Towton
Chapter 3 Men, Weapons and Tactics
Chapter 4 The Battle of Towton - First Day
Chapter 5 The Battle of Towton - Second Day
Chapter 6 Aftermath

Leonard James is an author of military books. He comes from a military family that has fought in every major war since at least the Crimean War, and probably before that. His forebears were mostly cavalrymen, though his father served in the RAF. Leonard has made a particular study of battlefields in Britain, walking over dozens of them to get an eye for ground. He has also handled genuine and replica weapons to better understand the use of pre-modern weapons and the men who wielded them.

NEW EBOOK - A Spotter's Guide to Sound Government Policies

NEW EBOOK -  A Spotter's Guide to Sound Government Policies

It is alarming to think that people once knew what Conservatism meant and what it stood for, and how much since then doubt has set in.
How radical is the Conservative Party today, compared with what it should be? What proposals would really shake up Whitehall and Brussels, spark up business, and fire up the economy? What policies would really galvanize the nation, break the stale consensus, and engage an electorate today indifferent to politics and distrustful of politicians?
A senior backbencher, a leading policy guerillista, and Margaret Thatcher’s eminent lieutenant here get together to suggest a platform for the next Government. This pocket guide helps the reader to measure the inventiveness of the Conservatives and other parties as they set out their manifesto stall.
This book suggests one hundred ideas to put the party back on track, to reconnect with what average voters beyond the W11 postcode hope for and aspire to, and what they expect Government to do to help.
Not everyone will agree with everything in these pages, nor is the list a complete one. Nor do the authors confine their aspirations to the Conservative Party alone: with the nation’s needs uppermost, they would be delighted to see such proposals adopted across the political divide.

Foreword by Lord Tebbit.
