Review Guardian Angel

From being the darling of the left the British journalist Melanie Phillips has became Britain's most controversial champion of national and cultural identity This updated memoir charts her journey beginning with a solitary childhood in London It took her years to understand her parents' emotional frailties and even longer to escape from them But she was left with strong Jewish moral values and a passionate commitment. To be honest I have not knowingly read any articles by British journalist Melanie Phillips either in The Guardian the Observer or the Daily Mail so I was interested to see what she had to say in her memoir Guardian AngelIt begins with a chapter about her early life which personally I think was a traumatic experience which has probably had an enormous impact on her whole life and career She was the only child of a Jewish couple Alfred and Mabel and grew up knowing rightly or wrongly that she was responsible for her mother’s ill health She felt that if she did anything wrong and caused displeasure it was likely to kill her mother What a terrible weight to carry around with you as you grow up To add to that was the fact that her father was too weak to stand up for his child he may as well have been physically absent from the family home As she grew older she managed to cover up her insecurities and present a confident determined demeanourWe go on to learn that after obtaining a degree Melanie chose journalism as a career uickly moving from a lesser known out of town paper to the Guardian At first she fitted in very well and was happy there but as time went by her political views began to conflict with the prevailing opinions She came from a background which supported the left but felt she had to move her political stance over timeHer articles and opinions became and contentious whether she was writing about the state of education the welfare state single parent families in this country or the rise of what she perceived to be anti Jewish and anti Israel feeling especially after the terrorist attacks in New York in 2001There was a certain amount of content that I agreed with and which I’ve been thinking about for a long time how much can we trust our politicians and journalists to tell the truth Do they “follow where the evidence leads” What is the evidence that reports and recommendations are based upon I found the book to be an interesting and thought provoking read but one which you need to approach with an open mind There are many issues raised in Melanie Phillips’ short memoir but I will allow her the last words in this review “I am simply Alfred and Mabel’s daughter a Jew who believes in the repair of the world and a journalist who believes in speaking truth to power”I received this free of charge in return for an honest review Warrior Women updated memoir charts her journey beginning with a solitary childhood in London It took her years to Michael Collins: Forgotten Astronaut understand her parents' emotional frailties and even longer to escape from them But she was left with strong Jewish moral values and a passionate commitment.

Melanie Phillips ß 6 Summary

The near implosion of the campaign to elect a successor to President Barack Obama all involve a revolt against the elites by millions of people It is these disdained masses who have been championed by Melanie Phillips in a career as prescient as it has been provocative Guardian Angel is not only an affecting personal story; in joining up the dots it provides a vital explanation of why the west is at a crossroads toda. It's an autobiography which is probably enjoyable if you read it but I bought the audible version in which the producer had the brilliant idea to make the reader read in every bloody reference in mid sentence effectively rendering the experience unenjoyableIt also has a somewhat misleading title; it's much like a very personal memoir than a book about politics It's highly subjective intimate and I think the subtitle is effectively bait not realSo I listened to it and then I returned it The Rabbit Effect: Live Longer, Happier, and Healthier with the Groundbreaking Science of Kindness up the dots it provides a vital explanation of why the west is at a crossroads toda.
