Don't know if any of you have read the original book I wrote in 1986? I had 200 published privately and the money raised from their sales went to the Campaign for Justice for sacked Miners from the Miners strike.

I had often thought about doing a reprint but never got around to it. My son has now formatted it into an ebook and I'm hoping to have it on sale on Amazon in late February. The original price was £3 and that is all it will be now, and all the money raised will go to the charity I do some work for in Dumfries called First Base who provide nearly 500 food parcels a month now to the needy.

It was originally my thesis from my time in Rushin College, Oxford 1984-86 so it's only 15,000 words but it's a really interesting read if you're interested in local history. If anyone is interested in buying it and helping out First Base by doing so please let me know and I will advise as and when it becomes available on Amazon.


No attempt at ethical or social seduction can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred of the Tory party. So far as I'm concerned they're lower than vermin. Aneurin Bevan.

Post a reminder when it's out Jock. Know a few who'd be interested in downloading a copy.

Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.
