MORE LETTERS FROM LLANABER: Global politics seen through life in this strange tiny village in West Wales A COLLECTION OF THE SECOND 50 NEWSLETTERS WRITTEN BY THE LLANABER PARISH FOREIGN SECRETARY FOR THE UNINITIATED – AN INTRODUCTION TO LLANABER: Llanaber is a tiny village by the seaside in West Wales with its own micro-climate (perpetual fog), village attractions (a variety of small shops set around a massive sink hole in the high street), neighbouring villages (Druidellau, Spanibont, Rufflotia,Sadli Bakwardia, Chicken and Bogbourne) and political shenanigans worthy of Capitol Hill itself. Llanaber is a microcosm of the US. What happens in the US affects Llanaber, especially as the mad old bat that runs the parish council, Mrs. Dorothy ‘Binky’ Trim, will plagiarize even the craziest Trump idea if she thinks she can benefit from it. Village life is documented in the village ‘newsletter’ written by the parish council’s Foreign Secretary and Anti-Corruption & Nepotism Tsar, David Smith. The characters and events in the village may seem bizarre beyond belief but take a closer look. Are they really that different to what’s happening in ‘the real world?’

Will Pete’s Karaoke based pop band win ‘band to band combat’ and tour the world on luxury liners finding love and adventure – No chance! But we’ll have a few good laughs at his expense as he once again staggers from one disaster to another trying. It’s a year later and our hapless hero Pete causes a riot in a Carribean club, a pensioner punch up when he fluffs up calling the bingo numbers, then gets himself hypnotized by accident. On the plus side he’s invited to audition for a cruise ship residency which could change his fortunes. Along the way, though, more trouble follows in the form of a fracas with security guards, a scrap with his agent, a run in with his arch rival, and eventually a mystery man trying to bump him off. His guardian angels this time include the beautiful Jo. Will romance blossom for Pete? Well…..
Pete Belcher is an incident prone hapless semi-pro musician on the bottom rung of the gigging circuit. After his disastrous performance at a wedding he winds up sacked once again. He resolves to start his own band and is convinced that using karaoke backing tracks instead of musicians will finally lead him to his rightful pot of gold. He advertises for a lead singer and auditions the sweet Carol and the sour Simon, and hires them both. Pete needs some of that gold up front to get the band going so he approaches his bank for a loan and manages to narrowly escape a serious brush with the law whilst acquiring the much needed funds. He also needs new wheels for the band & their events, which should be straightforward enough, yet he finds himself grappling with a stunt driving nun before he gets his hands on the keys to his shiny new van. His hitherto unheard of bulging wallet & roadworthy vehicle get him in to deep water with the local DHSS snoop, his personal stalker with an axe to grind, the delightless Brenda. Against all the odds, the band make it to their first gig, which turns out to be in a very unusual & unwelcoming venue. They breathe a sigh of relief when they finally escape, not realising they’re not the only ones and that their debut night has only just begun……. Join Pete Belcher, our loveable rogue, as he stumbles from one hilarious disaster in his life to another, before coming up trumps in the end. N.B. Contains language used by loveable rogues!
