ABOUT THE BOOK:
According to comedian and writer Rory McGrath: “The book is refreshingly honest and wickedly funny. Robin Page should be made Prime Minister immediately; unfortunately he’s handicapped by common sense and talent”. 


Journal Entry 2 by Needle-n-Thread at Canberra, Australian Capital Territory Australia on Monday, April 16, 2012

9 out of 10

Released 2 yrs ago (4/16/2012 UTC) at Canberra, Australian Capital Territory Australia

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

Rustic Rebel by Robin Page is an amusing story about his life on a farm in England. He is a bit of a rebel and speaks up about the difficult rules and regulations farmers have to abide by. He gets himself into strife quite often with the police as well.
It's a very good read and I look forward to reading more of his books if they become available.

I picked this book up from Needle-n-Thread. Thank you.

Robin Page makes a lot of good points in his book, which is a collection of short chapters, each with a story of his life on the farm and connected activities. He complains about the UK being cemented over for instance, which in turn leads to lose of countryside, and is connected to too many people (my links). He makes lots of sensible points like this. But it is like a cry from the mire. Is anyone listening, or more accurately, are the 'right' people listening? Do they care to listen?
What lets his argument down is his singling out of people and political parties to criticise for the problems and lack of vision being displayed. The problem is broader than that.

Caught at O'Malleys during the UnCANvention, thanks goldenwattle. I will add this to Mt TBR but as the mountain is a tad out of control at the present time it may be a while before I get to read it. It was great to meet up with you and to be able to put a face to a screen name.

Came across this book today. I picked it up because I have read Robin Page's books before and found them very entertaining.

I didn't enjoy this as much as the last Robin page book I read, as it focussed on the Government quite a bit. I have less than no interest in English politics, surpassed only by my complete disregard for my own country's politics.
Well written and some amusing parts about life as a farmer.
