Letters to Slingshot: Booklist boo boo

Hi there,

I just picked up a copy of the organizer for 2010 and was all smiles until I came across your booklist…

Jeffery Archer [sic] – The Prodigal Daughter

Really? Doesn’t anyone know this guy is kinda like the UK version of Rush Limbaugh?

Please read the wiki page on this sleaze:


If you don’t want to read the whole thing, just go for the controversies section – it’s large enough. Do you start with the missing funds from Red Cross or his part in the 2004 Equatorial Guinea coup d’├ętat attempt?

He was arrested for perverting the course of justice. He was also a key figure in the Conservative government of the Thatcher era – which in itself isn’t damning (totally, is it?). He also has his fingers in so many media pies in the UK – ones that we collectively detest and work against.

He needs no more money – don’t suggest people buy his books PLEASE!!!!

Thanks for reading my rant :)

Keep up the otherwise truly amazing work – we are collectively better for it!


Oops! Thanks for the info, Dan. Our bad.
