Many thanks to the two readers who bought copies of my book NHS: What’s Wrong and How to Put it Right after my article yesterday. In the book, you’ll no doubt be surprised to hear, I explain what is wrong with the NHS and how to put right what’s wrong.
I make 9 pence royalty on every book sold.
So, that’s a total of 18 pence on its way to the bank.
(As readers know I have never monetised my videos and we charge no fees for the website. No ads are allowed either. So this 18 pence is something of a windfall.)
I am blocked and suppressed everywhere (as well as being banned from all mainstream media and all social media) so two books sold is pretty exciting these days.
And the conspirators will think they can starve us to death by blocking my website.
But here in Uganda we can buy a four course meal for two (with a lovely bottle of wine) for eighteen pence. And have plenty left over for a generous tip and a taxi ride home.
So, we’re laughing all the way to the restaurant.
If anyone else would like to buy a copy (and to put another 9 pence into our bank account) you can buy the book from the bookshop (For reasons beyond my control there is no eBook available.)
If eleven people were to buy copies I’d make nearly a whole Great British pound in royalties!
I just don’t know what we’d do with all that much money at once.
I think we’ll probably just have a month long Christmas blow out and invest the rest.
P.S. There’s a video of me appearing on a TV show in 1993 available in the videos section of this website. But beware – the language gets a trifle fruity. Back in 1993, the national newspapers got a page lead out of my bad language. These days I wouldn’t be reported in the mainstream papers if I threw a blancmange at the Prime Minister.
