This month we are still none the wiser as to what Brexit means. We are still none the wiser as to who the leader of the Labour Party will be (though that WILL be resolved in a week or so - or will it?) As the silly season draws to a close we have to wonder what will come next.
This month we have an eclectic mix of items for you - Principles and Palliatives is a good example of Leatham's own position of Socialism and perhaps will make you think that the party/movement issue has been around a lot longer than you might care to admit - indeed maybe the idea of 'labour' as united in any respect is just a pipe dream. Leatham is a lot less worried about Labour and a lot more concerned about Socialism. These days everything seems to have aligned with the 'c' word (Capitalism) and true socialism has become something of an outmoded concept - at least in this country. If Corbyn wins again will that change?
While we're waiting for political answers, and the weather starts to turn autumnal, we reveal Leatham in his various hats - politician, publisher and poet.
And the Orraman keeps us amused a while longer speculating on the blight of the bestseller. Dare one say it's that ugly 'c' word again which has the biggest impact on immortality - or even whether a writer is remembered or not. It's something to think about.
