What is the bravest thing you've ever said? asked the boy. 'Help,' said the horse.  'Asking for help isn't giving up,' said the horse. 'It's refusing to give up.”

    I won't be rushing out to buy his book, but I have to admit for a Tory he's not the worst politician in the world.

    I can't see what this advertising link has to do with book recommendations, & links to paid advertising are not allowed here. Please see: Community house rules | Disability charity Scope UK

    1963 "A slice of bread and jam" by Tommy Rattigan.

    first few chapters I couldn't stop laughing, last few chapters I couldn't stop crying, one of the best books I've ever read.
