You will have to scroll quite a way down to read the review/feature.
- As per usual with other newspaper features, we will remove all nasty comments by missing child minge-buckets who clearly have not read the book and who are interested purely in attacking the author.
- Pity these people didn't spend as much time looking for their missing icon as they do following me around--they might have found her by now.

Famed celebrity couple (as MD would say, 'Not that one--the other one!') currently living apart. Deal (I will say alleged) negotiated, only five-figure, not yet signed. Currently writing about their 'experience' and the effect this has had on their marriage. Provisional publication date, March 2013, when official separation will be announced. A second celebrity divorce book (more MD!) already signed and sealed in the US, waiting for the nod. Watch this space!

It's silly, but it's true. Whether this be a sportsman, a royal, a politician, a Big Brother contestant leaving the house.
Jade Goody was lambasted by the press for alleged racist remarks--she was generally regarded as dirt, yet when she passed away the same people who had hated her reacted like we had lost the Queen. When Rock Hudson and Freddie Mercury left us, for some it was far easier to grab the knives than it was to reach for their tissues. With all the lousy weather we've been having, people are far happier moaning about the rain than they would be enthusing about the sunshine!
With all the wars and famines and political strife that we have in the world today, not so long ago these stories were pushed aside to make way for front-page headlines where Ian Huntley's brother revealed 'exclusively' how much he hated him. For money, of course. If, heaven forbid, our beloved Queen was to leave this world on the same day as Cheryl Cole or Justin Bieber, there's no question of who will grab the biggest headlines.
The Sun newspaper has a hidden rule: no major features are permitted unless they contain 'stock' words: vile, evil, pervert, crazy, etc.
There's a new site called 'Missing People'. I've done some checking and come up with a few figures which in view of the above are hardly surprising. When it first opened, it did so as a battle ground between two rival factions, headed by an assumed Brunhilde whose mantra is one of hatred, contempt, and all things negative. It was all very one-sided. On 3 July this site peaked with 3,382 hits for that day. Then the Rulers of Valhalla waved their wand. Brunhilde and her warring minions were banished, and barriers erected to keep them out of the Kingdom so that peace would preside. Result: as of 12 July 'Missing People' have averaged just 39 hits per day. Proof if proof were needed that sections of the British public are very much happier hating than loving.

Our soldiers come home--the lucky ones hale and hearty, others wounded, sometimes so badly that their lives will be ruined for ever. And all too often as above, clothed in pine.
I find it utterly REPREHENSIBLE that, because of some governmental cock-up--and virtually every problem in this country is by way of a governmental cock-up, no matter what other excuses they may give--that our soldiers, coming home on leave, are going to be expected to augment the farce known as the London Olympics.
THESE PEOPLE HAVE FOUGHT FOR THEIR COUNTRY AND SHOULD BE SHOWN THE RESPECT THEY DESERVE AND BE ALLOWED TO SPEND THIS INVALUABLE TIME WITH THEIR FAMILIES, WHO NEVER KNOW WHEN THEY ARE GOING TO SEE THEM AGAIN.
The London Olympics will be remembered as one of the greatest charades in our history. Britain won't win many models because not enough money is given to train our athletes as well as they should be trained--too much money is being wasted on ridiculous cuts, and by giving charitable donations and bail-outs to those who should be financing their own mistakes. I'm sure that if we were in the fix, these people wouldn't come rushing to our aid.
As if we won't have enough to worry about with security alerts there will be strikes, go-slows, vastly inflated prices, anything by greedy people to disrupt this ceremony for their own aims. There may be a sighting of Lord Lucan, or something similar. Good people from around the world who have saved up for years to come here will be leaving, telling their friends what a shit-hole Britain has become, and through absolutely no fault of its people--but those at the top, who in their entire lives have never known what it is like to want, to go without, to suffer.
So, Messieurs Cameron and Clegg, the arch buffoons in Britain's expanding Circus of Misery, what are you going to do about this latest folderol--blame someone else?
This seems to be the trend nowadays, whatever the problem.

I don't care what his sexuality is or isn't, and I find all religions but my own extreme at times. Some time ago I got a rap over the knuckles because I criticised one religion which shall remain nameless, while defending a star who similarly shall remain nameless--needless to say, not even God Himself can cure someone of a brain tumour by belting him over the head in a church, as happened in this case.
What I find disagreable about Tom Cruise, however--that is, if such stories are true--is that he may be about to sue The National Enquirer for 'hundreds of millions of dollars' for calling him a 'monster'. Were he to be called a monstre (monstre sacré) here in France, this would be the ultimate accolade.
But even to talk of dispensing such a vast amount of money on what may well prove a worthless cause, when there is so much poverty, starvation and illness in this world, is not good.
Surely if he has a few hundred millions to spare, the lovely Tom could put it to much better use? And take a tip from one who knows. Whatever they're saying about you now, they'll still be saying after you've parted with your hard-earned brass. That's why I never sue.
There are other much more satisfactory ways of making tea without just chucking a tea-bag in the cup. More fun, too...
