    This book has reinstalled a confidence in political involvement and humanity in me that had become jaded by the effects of uncaring governments, Harry Smiths warnings need to be heard everywhere in the UK before the next general election, the young voters need to take heed of his warnings of failure to engage and work actively to reestablish a socially responsible form of government before the wealthy few commit the many to privation and servitude, desperation and hopelessness

    I loved this book, despite the fact that much of what he wrote, particularly about his childhood, I had already read in "Harry's Last Stand". There is so much in this book that resonates for me and there are so many passages that I would love to share in this review, but that would make this almost as long as the book itself. There are many lessons to be learnt from what Harry tells us, especially if we want to change this world and make it a better place for future generations. The following pi [...]

    Harry Leslie Smith is a rare phenomenon. A sage in his mid nineties with the lucidity and clarity of purpose to warn us of what may become of us if we do not take remedial action soon. Based on his first hand knowledge of another era with frighteningly similar social, political and economic characteristics to those of today, he interweaves his boyhood experiences of abject poverty growing up in the north of England with the UK's current worsening economic position for the majority of its citizen [...]

    'I am an ordinary man who lived through extraordinary times. I am one of the last remaining voices from an era when Britain was savage and brutal to all those who did not have wealth'. Harry Leslie Smith, Don't Let My Past Be Your Future.Harry Leslie Smith with his latest book, part scathing political polemic, part memoir and part warning, demonstrates that nobody is ever 'too old' to become a writer. Whilst there might be plenty of books detailing Britain's history, in particular the wretched c [...]

    This is an angry book. Of course, that forces the question, is the anger justified, and the answer is yes, it is justified. The problem is that such anger easily overwhelms the message. Mr Smith has certainly lived through hard times and, rightfully, doesn't want others to experience his hardships. It is valuable and admirable that Mr Smith has written this book but the tone of the book will prevent his message being widely heard. Financial inequality is widespread; life is not fair; politicians [...]

    An amazing book written by 94 year old Harry Leslie Smith. There is a chilling message in the title. Harry compares much of what is happening today with his childhood in the 20s and 30s - soup kitchens/ food banks, his family's constant struggle to find decent/any housing with the plight of refugees - I can confirm this, as grandmother was told to sell her house when she applied for welfare when my grandad was out of work in the thirties. Hard times which are coming back thanks to Austerity and [...]
