The Reading Agency is delighted that bestselling novelist and former SAS soldier Andy McNab will lead its 2013 Six Book Challenge to help get even more adults reading more. He will be meeting Six Book Challenge participants at events all over the UK and all completers will receive a certificate signed by Andy, in his role as 2013 Challenge ambassador.

Andy McNab says: “I’m a perfect example of how reading can change your life. I had the reading age of an 11 year old when I was 17 and I only became a confident reader when I joined the Army. But once I started I couldn’t stop – and that’s what the Six Book Challenge is all about.”

“Cameron betrayed US over troop cuts…” Says SAS legend Andy McNab, who switched to Tories in 2010

McNab’s support helped Mr Cameron into No 10 after a meeting between the two convinced the Gulf War veteran to switch from Labour to Tories.

But McNab has now lost faith in the PM after he rubber-stamped plans to axe 20,000 soldiers’ jobs.

He said: “I feel let down. These cuts go far deeper and further than he said they would when we met.”

The Sun’s security adviser also demanded that politicians “know the new limits of our Armed Forces”.

He said: “We’ve got to be realistic about our greatly reduced military capability. Cameron cannot put troops in harm’s way by sending them into situations they don’t have the manpower to deal with.

“And he cannot expect them to do everything they did before.”

UK troop numbers are set to fall from 102,000 to 82,000. Ministers plan to fill the gap by doubling the number of TA reservists to 30,000.

But McNab accused them of making decisions based on money and politics instead of military needs.

He added: “We would need a huge cultural change to have 30,000 reservists. And we don’t even know if employers will sign up, so we are getting the losses without knowing if we’ll get the gains. That’s a huge gamble”

Aaarrggh…bad news for all of us Andy McNab fans…. Andy’s new Tom Buckingham series ‘Red Notice’ and the new Nick Stone thriller ‘Silencer’ are delayed 🙁

‘Red Notice’ will now be published in October 2012 instead of ‘Silencer’ – which has been postponed until October next year!!!! *WEEP*

Well…to be honest we here really wondered how Andy could keep up with all those book titles ‘demanding’ to be produced.  We’re not sure why these books have been postponed but we do know Andy is alive and kicking.. so it can’t be anything dramatic. Of course it IS a big drama ….. for us!!!

Another consequence is this….alas…:

At an exhibition exploring the real life war stories that inspired Michael Morpurgo’s hugely popular novel War Horse and the hit stage show that followed it, Camilla unveiled a watercolour she has painted of a horse badly wounded in a terrorist attack.

The Duchess, who paints on days off at the country homes she shares with Prince Charles at Highgrove and Birkhall, presented the National Army Museum in London with her portrait of Sefton, a horse badly wounded in a 1982 IRA nail bomb attack on the Household Cavalry in Hyde Park.

The painting, finished by her at Birkhall last week, went on show with other pictures of old war horses painted on equine-shaped templates by celebrities including Alan Titchmarsh and SAS author Andy McNab on a wall of remembrance..
