The Fat Chef

 
Well here it is at last! My fourth book in the WW2 trilogy. Yeah, Ok, an oxymoron but gosh how do you change your whole website to accommodate the next few books?The Fat Chefis set in Paris and I originally based it in the famous ‘Le Meurice’. I even planned to go stay there for awhile to see first-hand what it was like. When I checked out the cost I decided discretion is the better part of valour and figured I could write the book even if I didn’t have first-hand  knowledge of the place.

Call me Kuchu

 
‘Call me Kuchu’ is a new film about homophobia made as adocu-drama concerning the adoption of a new law in Uganda making it illegal tobe gay. Not only that, but Gay/HIV positive individuals face execution. The film raises issues I suspect many men and women would rather not confront. As a nation, our people fought way back in our history against slavery, they established women’s rights and they died in a war against Nazism; they have entered wars always believing they were on the side of right, justice and fairness – at least that is what I was brought up to believe.

Hunt, Mid-staffs and the NHS

 
To-day I heard Jeremy Hunt Health Service Minister on the news. He said and I quote, ‘Just imagine that our Olympic athletes had the attitude of not coming last instead of winning. That is just what the NHS has been doing.’
 
Hearing that insult from a politician is both astounding and risible. As a Consultant in the NHS for 27 years, I can honestly say I have strived throughout to ensure my patients get the best possible treatment, whether I have had to fight for it or even whistle-blow.
