About the Book

Book 8 of The Speedicut Papers is primarily concerned with Speedicut’s involvement with the young Winston Churchill on the North-West Frontier of India, in the Sudan at the Battle of Omdurman and in the Second Boer War, during which Speedicut is captured along with Churchill. When not acting as nursemaid to Britain’s future greatest Prime Minister, Speedicut plays a central role, invariably with disastrous consequences, in the notorious Jameson Raid, Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee and the assassination of the Empress of Austria. “Speedicut’s opinions on the great figures of our time give a whole new meaning to the word iconoclast…” Dr Samuel Johnson “If all the men and women Speedicut slept with were laid end to end, I wouldn’t be at all surprised.” Dorothy Parker “In defeat, defiance; in victory, magnanimity; in peace, goodwill – except where that shit, Speedicut, is concerned.” Winston S Churchill
