This is coolbert:
I see I was NOT ALONE in noting the passing of GEORGE MACDONALD FRASER.
Creator of Flashman. Flashman, VC, great military "hero" of the Victorian Era!
Here is from the British Daily Mail:
"The last testament of Flashman's creator: How Britain has destroyed itself"
Strong words and ideas from a man of strong words and ideas.
Read it all.
FLASHMAN AS A SERIES OF NOVELS WOULD NOT BE POSSIBLE TODAY!!??
"I [Fraser] am deeply concerned for the United Kingdom and its future. I look at the old country as it was in my youth and as it is today and, to use a fine Scots word, I am scunnered"
- –noun 1. an irrational dislike; loathing

FLASHMAN, REGARDLESS OF HIS ROGUISH CHARACTER, WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THE SAME!!!
