Download and read online Stiff Upper Lip Jeeves in PDF and EPUB A Jeeves and Wooster novel Bertie Wooster looks pretty stylish in his new Tyrolean hat - or so he thinks: others, notably Jeeves, disagree. But when Bertie embarks on an errand of mercy to Totleigh Towers, things get quickly out of control and he's going to need all the help Jeeves can provide. There are good eggs present, such as Gussie Fink-Nottle and the Rev. 'Stinker' Pinker. But there also is Sir Watkyn Bassett J.P., enemy of all the Woosters hold dear, to say nothing of his daughter Madeline and Roderick Spode, now raised to the peerage. And Major Brabazon Plank, the peppery explorer, who wants to lay Bertie out cold. Thank goodness for the intervention of Chief Inspector Witherspoon of Scotland Yard - but is this gentleman all he seems?

Download and read online Stiff Upper Lip in PDF and EPUB This is the story of generations of parents, Britain's richest and grandest, who believed that being miserable at school was necessary to make a good and successful citizen. Childish suffering was a price they accepted for the preservation of their class, and their entitlement. The children who were moulded by this misery and abuse went on - as they still do - to run Britain's public institutions and private companies. Confronting the truth of his own schooldays and the crimes he witnessed, Alex Renton has revealed a much bigger story. It is of a profound malaise in the British elite, shown up by tolerance of the abuse of its own children that amounts to collusion. This culture and its traditions, and the hypocrisy, cronyism and conspiracy that underpin them, are key to any explanation of the scandals over sexual abuse, violence and cover-up in child care institutions that are now shocking the nation. As Renton shows, complicity in this is the bleak secret at the heart of today's British elite.

Download and read online Stiff Upper Lip in PDF and EPUB In this boisterous story collection, mischief abounds in the quiet corners of the British Empire on which the sun never sets As the overseer of the kitchen at the British embassy in Vulgaria, De Mandeville has begun to abuse his power. He subjects the King’s guests to a blistering Madras curry, a French onion soup served without spoons, and a table so loaded with vegetation that the party can hardly see the food. But worst of all, he has begun to cook with garlic, that fragrant bulb so beloved by diplomats that it must be banned, lest foul breath cripple the Empire. De Mandeville is due for comeuppance, and no breath mint can save him now. “If Garlic Be the Food of Love” is only the first story in this invaluable peek at life in British diplomatic circles. After the ninth, the reader will wonder not how the British Empire came apart, but how De Mandeville, Polk-Mowbray, and the King’s other dips ever got it started in the first place.

Download and read online Stiff upper lips in PDF and EPUB Auteur(s): Harry De Paepe en Flip Feyten De brexit heeft niet enkel met economie, migratie en soevereiniteit te maken, maar ook met de Engelsen zelf. Ze voelen zich niet alleen anders dan de anderen. Ze zijn het ook. Wat maakt de Engelsen zó Engels? In Stiff Upper Lips proberen Harry De Paepe en Flip Feyten dat te achterhalen. Hun zoektocht levert de meest wonderlijke verhalen op. Hoe raakten de Engelsen zo verslingerd aan thee? Wat is het geheim van hun aparte humor? Hoe ontstond het kampioenschap schenen schoppen? En hoe staat het met hun legendarische gereserveerdheid, de 'stiff upper lip'? Hoe komt de Queen aan de titel 'Seigneur of the Swans'? Waarom moet je als parlementslid goed kunnen rennen? En waarom is God een stoffige Engelsman? Met liefde voor Engeland en gevoel voor humor wordt de ziel van Albion blootgelegd. Of u na het lezen de Engelsen beter zal begrijpen, is niet zeker. Maar u zal wél meer van ze houden.

Download and read online Unfaithful Music Mein Leben in PDF and EPUB »Mit guten Manieren und schlechtem Atem kommt man nirgendwo hin.« Getreu dieser Devise sang Elvis Costello in seinem Protestsong gegen Margaret Thatcher, er werde auf ihrem Grab stehen und darauf herumtrampeln. Bei seinem legendären Auftritt bei Saturday Night Live stellte er sich der Zensur von Bands wie den Sex Pistols im Radio entgegen. Bis heute nimmt Costello bei seiner Kritik an politischen Missständen und jeder Form von Nationalismus nie ein Blatt vor den Mund. In den dreißig Alben, mit denen der Brite seit 1977 Erfolge feiert, erfand sich der eigenwillige Künstler immer wieder neu. Seine rauen Anfänge lagen zwischen Rock, New Wave und Punk - und schon damals erreichte er ein Millionenpublikum. Mit »She«, aufgenommen für die romantische Komödie »Notting Hill«, rührte er die Herzen aller Liebenden. Über alle Hinwendungen zu so unterschiedlichen Stilrichtungen wie Country, Folk, Motown, Jazz, Ska und Klassik hinweg begeistert Costello seine Fans - und ist dabei in Deutschland gerade mit seinen jüngsten Alben besonders erfolgreich. Elvis Costellos Buch erklärt die Hintergründe seiner legendären Songtexte und berührt durch seine Poesie.
