About 15-20 years a go I partly read a very funny book, then lost it, where the Queen and other members of the Royal family had to live in a council house, pensioners bungalow.

Anyone remember the title and author??

Thanks

Thanks to both, that's the one!!

Unfortunately the old grey matter is decaying, even though I try to exercise it each day.

Sounds like a fun book. I just recently read all the Adrian Mole books and had forgotten how funny they were. I think I appreciate the humour more than when I read the earliest ones as a teenager.

If you like a good read with hilarious plots then read books by Tom Sharp, especially the ones with 'Blott' in the title.

He was chucked out of South Africa for lampooning Apartheid.

Two of my favourite authors in one thread!

If you want a REALLY good read, then try the Terry Pratchett Discworld books, absolutely brilliant. SWMBO and I get them as audio books, put them on the iPod and listen to them on our journeys.

Is that the Council House at the end of the Mall, the one with the balcony?

No, they were kicked out of that one for anti-social behaviour. They were moved to a council estate where they knew no one.

Can't happen soon enough as far as I'm concerned - up the republic!!!
