Watching War Films with My Dad

Watching War Films with My Dad

Author: Al Murray Format: Paperback Release Date: 22/05/2014

Al Murray's (AKA The Pub Landlord) musing on his childhood where his fascination with history and all things war began. Have you ever watched a film with someone who, at the most dramatic scene, argues that the plane on screen hasn't been invented yet? Or that the tank rumbling towards the hero at the end of the film is the wrong tank altogether? Al Murray is that someone. Try as he might, he can't help himself. Growing up in the 1970s, Al, with the help of his dad, became fascinated with the history of World War Two. They didn't go to football; they went to battlefields. Because like so many of his generation whose childhood was all about Airfix, Action Man and Where Eagles Dare, he grew up in the cultural wake of the Second World War. Part memoir, part life obsession, this is Al Murray musing on what he knows best. And he's sure to tell you things about history that you were never taught at school.

Let's re-Great Britain

Let's re-Great Britain

Author: Al Murray Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 26/03/2015

In Let's re-Great Britain, Al Murray's Pub Landlord sets out his party's vision for the country, and explains how politics actually works. Citizens of Hope & Glory! It's time to bring common sense to the House of Commons. Parliament is a nest of slippery, poisonous vipers and only a bonkers, mental idiot would try to make sense of it. Yet in Let's re-Great Britain, Al Murray, the Pub Landlord, presents his guide to British politics and a vision for a Greater Britain. In it you'll learn and appreciate The Guv's views and policies on: - The jobless: Fix youth unemployment with a pyramid scheme (literally, build some pyramids) - Economics: Cut the deficit by borrowing more, growing a beard and leaving the country - Criminal Justice: Bring back hanging if only for the sake of the rope industry - Immigration: Electrify the English Channel A plain, common-sense vision of an impossibly complicated (and, frankly, dull) subject, this will almost certainly be one day hailed as the new founding text of the nation - a Magna Carta 2.0 from the Landlord of Hope and Glory.

Why do we believe this nonsense? Because, as a nation we've forgotten the basic elements of common sense. Thank God then for Al Murray. Together with the collecting thoughts of hia locals, he's here to put good old-fashioned British common sense back where it belongs.

British people.
