You the reader must be both judge and jury on Richards’s hypothesis; that god came to Earth 30,000 years ago and stayed until a chance encounter with our hero (Dickie Bouy head only just above the waves sink or swim). Had them speed on there way, as his telegraphic mind enabled them to jumpstart there star ship.

Don’t just take my word for it read save the world it’s a rattling good yarn and you won’t be disappointed.

Book Extract

If that was the attitude of the boarders, then this general malaise went through the entire school and manifested itself in a spectacle that, when the School Inspector and the Public Health Inspector saw it, they had no other course of action than to close the school. The headmaster was caught because he hadn’t received a little warning. An hour was all that was normally needed to get out the bamboo rods, clean out all the drains and disinfect the most visible parts.
Where was he? Oh yes. The positive ego. A positive ego, but what about the workers? The workers would get together and they too would have a positive ego. They would want a slice of the cake even before it was made and in the end, these capitalist bosses had to slice up the cake and pay the welfare wage.

He thought again about the leader column in the newspaper and the phrase ‘welfare capitalism’. Even without reading the article, he knew what it meant. It meant that a country would prosper and pay for those who fell by the wayside. It would give an education to those who couldn’t afford it from their own resources. It would give them hospitalization and a pleasant retirement without having to worry about how they were going to pay the rent.

He thought of how those same workers had so forced up the price of public transport that the old, the retired and the infirm were trapped in their villages. Trapped because some bureaucrat had decided that the trains were not economic. Trapped by a promise of buses that never arrived, or did arrive but were taken off because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time and there was no one in them, and when the people were there, they couldn’t afford to use them.

Space had to be taken in newspapers to tell people that they needn’t worry about their electricity bills if they couldn’t afford it. If they filled completed form XYZ in triplicate and they signed this and they signed that and they listened to this and they listened to that and they read this and they read that, they would get a rebate. Welfare capitalism.

His attention wandered back to his giants. He looked up at the sky and said aloud,
“well Mr. Second Giant, what are you going to do with your sloppy cup of tea?”
He picked up his pen and wrote…..

“I ‘m going to have a consumer led society based on armaments. You see, I ‘m not going to be greedy, always going on strike, always demanding more money and forcing you to have people of a positive ego leading to enforced socialism because capitalism isn’t allowed to prosper. My people are going to make armaments. They are going to make tanks, aeroplanes, submarines and aircraft carriers, none of which we want. That’s going to consume a lot of our steel and that’s going to keep our steelworks busy. I’ll keep a lot of people busy too. Yon know, we have got you licked!
