LoveReading View on Letts Rip!

Quentin Letts has never been one to shrink away from offering an opinion in his various newspaper columns over the years and here we have a collection of his journalistic musings. No one is a safe target and his frustration, anger and wry humour all come to the fore in this entertaining read.

Letts Rip! Synopsis

Throughout the New Labour years - that decade of deceit, that era of wretched wriggle - the Daily Mail's Quentin Letts has maintained a lonely, vehement vigil. Like a lone clay pigeon shot squinting through his sights at a sky black with targets, he has fired his daily bullets at the poseurs and pooh-bahs of British public life. John Prescott? Bang! Alan Sugar? Bang! Bang! Peter Mandelson, Harriet Harman, and the Commons Speaker Letts nicknamed 'Gorbals Mick'? Bullseyes - every single one.
