I'm not sure because it seems like the person who's salary is being paid is the one behind the tweet

I'm spartacus
I enjoy the books she writes under the name Robert Galbraith.
This is fantastic shouldn’t it be in Freebie for more people to see.
Love the books and everyone's entitled to spend their money how they want. Oh. Hang on a sec. Nope. That's most definitely not what her lot believe. Its all about redistribution of wealth. take from the rich and give to the poor. Hope she's got her money safely protected offshore.

OFF TOPIC

Is she? Government Civil Servants sign the Limited or Full Official Secret's Act to prevent the release of confidential and private information. Since Tony Blair's time in office this confidence and respect has eroded as Whistle Blowers have released confidential documents to the public domain. Whether you agree or not, the bureaucrats are supposedly independent from the government but must adhere to strict rules and regulations. It is this strict independence and confidentiality that allows experts including specialists in fields such virology, immunology, and law to discuss without repercussions or impunity subjects that are controversial, contentious or construed as liable. If ever experts feel that their anonymity is affected and information released to the public it could undermine the whole system and those people wouldn't come forward for the fear of reprisals.

I posted it as a deal, however the mods closed that (despite 40+ votes) and moved it here. Because everyone checks the discussion pages....

And thats not to steap from the OP, I searched for the deal and didnt find this thread. More than happy for someone else to get the credit, but would be even happier if more people knew about the story!

Usually the person who posts first deal remains so not sure what happened


Hopefully this will gain lots of heat so people will see.

I read she gave so much to charity she's the first billionaire to become a millionaire voluntarily.

Also that in 2012 she chose to keep her taxes in the UK, even though it's more, because she wanted to give back to the govt that helped her when she was down.

And if by redistribution of wealth do you mean taxes? Because that's like, a universal thing?

This was posted before mine, but was placed in discussions. I posted in deals and it got moved to this thread. The way this place works is crazy, this thread should be in deals, so more people see it.

That seems reasonable that this discussion was moved to Freebies once it went live.

What was ripped off exactly?

Have a glance over the wiki link at the synopsis, shes even been taken to court over it. Very very similar and from 20 years earlier and too close for my liking having read the books and watched the show as a kid, but I guess the fans will have a different threshold for plagiarism.

I had a brief read over that wiki you linked to and the only things I saw they had in common were witches and school.

Further digging on the internet... people that had read both series of books said there was little in common and that in fact the more recent TV series (of The Worst Witch) actually borrow elements from the Harry Potter books.

That's why I asked what you found to be similar.

Not for all I.e. if you happen to live in Scotland and crave freedom. Harry Potter 1 and 2 is still top notch though.
