Ragged Trousered Philanthropists

by Robert Tressell

An eye opening work of uncanny relevance today in my Australian context as the present Liberal government proceeds to emasculate the employees and unions with draconian Industrial Relations legislation.

Coupled with Anti-Terrorist legislation removing individual rights and freedoms which US citizens have enshrined in their constitution I hold grave fears for this country which has been so good to me.

I believe people have forgotten how bad things can be when left up to the "bosses discretion" and how hard won all of the working conditions we enjoy today were.

In 10 years time Australia will be ripe for "The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists of Australia 2015."
Unfortunately, probably true for a lot of countries. How sad is that?

I will be recommending this book to as many people as I can.

Author of the Day

Angela Roquet
Angela Roquet loves everything macabre - with a dash of comedy. She is also fascinated by world religions, the afterlife and mythology. This clearly shows in her work, where mythological characters tend to make an appearance, showing off their more mundane sides. Today, Roquet talks to us about what inspired her book, Graveyard Shift, why she has a female reaper in the leading role and how she used to raise eyebrows in public with the types of books she was reading.
