Book: Waiting For Another War

THE place for your Sisters-related comments, questions and snippets of Sisters information. For those who do not know, The Sisters of Mercy are a rock'n'roll band. And a pop band. And an industrial groove machine. Or so they say. They make records. Lots of records, apparently. But not in your galaxy. They play concerts. Lots of concerts, actually. But you still cannot see them. So what's it all about, Alfie? This is one of the few tightly-moderated forums on Heartland, so please keep on-topic. All off-topic posts will either be moved or deleted. Chairman Bux is the editor and the editor's decision is final. Danke.

Did anyone in the UK have to pay import tax on the book?

Ouch, did you? I have to confess the postage has put me off ordering it so far. I didn't even think about tax...

No I haven't ordered yet, was just wondering, put off a bit by the extortionate postage cost also

You'd hope Leeds Central Library would want a copy for their local history section.

The book looks so good, lots of rare or previously unpublished photos and the first glance promises a very interesting reading. Thank you very much, Trevor! That‘s an amazing work. :notworthy:
By the way, no import tax here either. :D

I can say it was very entertaining and I enjoyed it all - thanks for making it available again!

The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity but the one that removes the awareness of other possibilities, that makes it seem inconceivable that other ways are viable, that removes the sense that there is an outside.
