For over a generation, the illustrious Dr Foth has dispensed doses of his irrepressible wit and pith in the most eagerly devoured columns to appear in the most important newspapers and magazines of our day. In this book, Allan Fotheringham offers his loyal readers an hilarious compendium of opinions, 'Fothisms', and profiles from the many subjects (and targets) that have fallen under his busy pen. From Lord Almost to Larry Zolf, the Argos to The Zalm, the Foth's telling anecdotes and brazen insights take us through the ABCs of the politicians, people and personalities who have left their mark on our time. Journalists, tycoons, magicians and prime ministers are praised and pilloried alike in this romp across the political alphabet. Pay attention, fans, Dr Foth's class is now in session...
