Running After Maria by Eddie Gubbins

A tragic romance novel.
James Ashleigh lives to him the perfect life. Plenty of money, plenty of women and plenty of drink to keep him happy. He spends his working time sailing the oceans of the world as an officer on oil tankers. Carefree, he is not tied to one place but visits exotic places around the world. When on leave, he can completely please himself as to what he does. Life is great.
Feeling the need to move from oil tankers, he joins a small company whose ships trade to the Baltic. While the ship is in Helsinki discharging cargo, he meets Maria. His life changes from that point. He is no longer carefree but tied to a place and another person. He starts to look forward with excitement to arriving in Helsinki and her letters when he gets back to London.
The novel charts the progress of those changes, both for good and bad. Through the twisting path of James' life we follow his joy and his despair in his relationship to Maria.
As time passes he wonders whether he will be truly happy again.

Natalia Sikorska

This case illustrates the inherent bias in the English legal system. Natalia Sikorska stole £1000 worth of goods from Harrods.
The magistrate gave her a suspended sentence because she is intelligent and with considerable talents. Whats rubbish. She is a thief and has broken the law.
If she happened to be a black working class woman, she would have been sent to jail! The magistrate would not have said to her " I know you are poor and struggling to get through life so I will be lenient." Lock her up would have been ther cry.
It is a disgrace!

Drugs in society

Drugs of one sort or another are reported to be prevalent in society at the present time. It is easy for the general public like me who do not have anything to do with drugs other than alcohol to criticise the police for not doing more. They have to have evidence to prosecute and getting that evidence is often difficult. They might be able to arrest the lower ranks of drug pushers but it is those higher up the chain who get harder and harder to pursue. Those people are willing to sacrifice those lower down the chain.
My thriller, For the love of Pauline tackles this problem. When his daughter dies from a batch of contaminated drugs, Ken Flood sets out to find who supplied her with the drugs. With his contacts from his daughter's school that proves easy. All Ken wants at first is to " put the frighteners" on the  supplier. He asks his brother if he can supply Ken with a gun. This prompts his brother Norman to get involved with the surcharge for the drugs supplier. The involvement of his brother
leads Ken on another frightening  journey with his brother through the underworld to find out who ultimately supplied the drugs which killed his daughter. Like before it puts Ken into danger and through situations outside of his academic world where people are prepared to kill to protect their identity. The question he has to ask is will they get the police involved or will they have to take the law into their own hands?
For the Love of Pauline by Eddie Gubbins is available from Amazon, Kindle, createspace and smashwords.

John McDonnell

how can we trust this man to be in government when he does not believe in the democratic system. Instead of trying to get the government to answer in parliament, all he can do is organise mass anti government rallies. He denies that his intention is to breed violence but opens his political process to the violent mob. The way to end.austerity is to put up income tax rates rather than squeeze the poor.
Is he the most dangerous man in U.K. Politics at the present time?

Theresa May

surely she cannot go on much longer. Even the Queen showed her the way to behave by visiting the tower block survivors. Who are her advisers? As to making a pact with the DUP words fail me. I do not trust John McDonell but at least the Labour Party are saying the things that have been annoying people for a long time. The rich get richer for no greater effort. Now we hear the University Vice Chancellors are going to awkward themselves a large pay rise while keeping lectures wages the same. Get rid of them all.
