Bluffer's Guide to Christmas Instant Wit & Wisdom

Author: Boris Starling Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 22/10/2019

Gone are the days when the Christmas run-up meant December 1 onwards. Nowadays no arbitrary date is too early (or too late) to start celebrating the most important event on the calendar. Wherever you start, suddenly you're back at 25 December. Roy Wood famously wished it could be Christmas every day. Well, old sparkly beardie finally got his wish, and here's the definitive guide to help us navigate our way through the maze of holly and mistletoe to the gift that keeps on giving. The Bluffer's Guide to Christmas will help you get the most value from Christmas at the least cost to your wallet and sanity. It will teach you everything you need to know and say about the origins and evolution of the biggest religious feast of them all (in case that should be overlooked). But, most importantly, it will see you safely through the Holy Festival of shopping and indigestion just in time to prepare you fully for the next one. Tinseltastic!

William Shakespeare's Brexit

William Shakespeare's Brexit

Author: Boris Starling Format: Hardback Release Date: 17/10/2019

BORIS JOHNSON: To leave or not to leave, that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer The slings and arrows of outrag'd Remainers, Or to take arms against a sea of Leavers, And by opposing end them? To leave, to stay, No more; and by leaving to say we end The EU, and the thousand petty rules That we adhere to, - 'tis a consummation Devoutly to be wish'd. To stay, to leave; To stay, perchance to leave: ay, there's the rub; For in that move to leave what dreams may come, When we have shuffl'd off this Brussels yoke... 'This is our story. All Brexit's a stage, and all the men and women merely players...' Written by the Bard himself, with a little help from novelist Boris Starling, this wonderful 'comedy of errors' retells the tragic story of the UK's acrimonious break from the EU, written in wonderful iambic pentameter. A story of cynical electioneering and poisoned political scheming, featuring the likes of Boris Johnson, Theresa May and David Cameron, this is a most original take of the defining event of our time - and the perfect satire for anyone interested in politics, humour, or even a little bit of Am-dram.

Bluffer's Guide to Brexit Instant Wit & Wisdom

Bluffer's Guide to Brexit Instant Wit & Wisdom

Author: Boris Starling Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 04/06/2018

There are few, if any, subjects better suited to the noble art of bluffing than Brexit! This book gives the basics of Brexit: the history behind Britain's relationship with Europe, the referendum itself and the way it divided (and continues to divide) this country, the legalities of the split, and some of the areas which will be most affected. It drops in a few French, Latin and Greek terms, which the Bluffer should use to portray a certain je ne sais quoi. It's not a `How To' guide, but rather a `How To Pretend You Know How To' guide. (There is a subtle distinction.) So it will enable The Bluffer to drop in some esoteric facts, make a few opaque allusions, and convey the kind of inside knowledge usually confined to the most senior civil servants. This book is a must for the current political climate! Written by experts and offering readers the opportunity to pass off appropriated knowledge as their own, the Bluffer's Guides provide hard fact masquerading as frivolous observation in one witty, easy read.
