About The Speaker...
I was a Family Doctor in Dorset for 38 years and worked for another 10 in GP and Hospitals. I was a GP Trainer for 30 years. I have also been a member of the Richard III society since 1979 and the American Civil War Round Table (UK) since 1990
I have travelled to the US extensively and became absorbed in its history.
About Their Talks...
I do three talks of which ‘Alcohol Considered’ is easily the most popular. On one hand the department of health treats alcohol as though it is a Mercury compound and on the other their is a huge colossal world wide drinks industry. The truth has got to be somewhere in between and reveals a lot of hidden information and exposes the UK as the world’s nanny state.
‘250 years of fighting the Americans’ is another talk. Behind the special relationship is in fact an uneasy relationship. We have been to war with the US three times and on the edge even more. The US came into WW1 to help the French not us. They were forced into WW2 by Japan after bleeding us as far as they could. And yet there are close military ties.
‘Richard III and his mother’ is another talk I created to balance the dreadful trashing of his reputation by Shakespeare. Richard’s mother Cecile Neville was a remarkable woman. A great beauty, married at twelve to the Duke of York, she had the first of her 13 children at twenty four. She outlived her four sons, two of which became kings and died age 80. Richard was a good law maker, a good military commander, a loyal brother and a man to go to when needed.
