The Rice Queen Spy
Harry Potter. Popular Features. New Releases. Categories: Contemporary Fiction Erotic Fiction. The Rice Queen Spy. Description Philip Croft, a master spy for Her Majesty's secret service was cruelly outed and tortured for his homosexuality. He was a rice queen-partial only to Asian men, a gentle man who was betrayed by some-not for being gay, but for being too decent and nave. This novel traces Philip's life and his loves, and is a triumphant testimony to a gay man's passage to old age.
He kept his dignity and lived a full life while briefly thumbing his nose at his former superiors by opening a gay sauna in London. This book breathes life into a gay man who served his country through deception, and though his country punished him for his personal deception, he became the victor rather than the victim.

The Rice Queen Spy
Some of the files have a contemporary echo. In , Rees-Mogg senior went to court to try to stop Britain from ratifying the treaty that created the European Union. When he lost his case, Major was delighted. The files also show how both Conservative and Labour governments, concerned by the threat of communism, supported propaganda operations and urged MI5 to focus on suspected subversives in trades unions and the media.
A decade and a half later, Thatcher asked security officials to investigate whether left-wingers were trying to infiltrate the civil service. The diplomats decided their best chance of being convincing was if their reports were trustworthy.
The U. While Thatcher is famous for having got by on four hours of sleep a night, less well-known is her habit of catching up by napping on car journeys. It happened so often that her office asked for a specially designed headrest for her Daimler, to protect her neck if the car braked suddenly while she was dozing. When Thatcher was finally ousted in , her office began preparing for her successor. A folder was prepared for each of them. Now public for the first time, they contain details of how the new prime minister should behave upon being invited to meet the Queen at Buckingham Palace, what government posts they would need to fill, and what urgent policy decisions they faced.
The first folder prepared was for Heseltine, a former Defence Secretary who had long been considered a likely successor to Thatcher. The Hurd and Major folders were then based on that, with variations reflecting their different situations. But Conservative lawmakers had different ideas from the officials: They went for Major as the compromise candidate. And the Heseltine folder? Video Shows.
