Got A Problem? Odds Against You?

That does sound like the tag line for the Ministry Of Common Sense but oh no, it was The Equalizer's Robert McCall, that sexy CIA operative who just popped it in the classified section in the 1980's and came to the rescue of a Charlie's Angel look a like in distress every week.

Well it turns out the show was one of Harvey's favorites and he's spending, well a lot, making it into a feature. Perhaps he'll finally see the connection between the real equalizing of life we do every day. Never really thought of ourselves in that light, good fighting evil, lone champions against unconquerable giants and paradoxically we're the Charlie's Angel look alikes.

We have said sorry for the misunderstanding. We are still awaiting his reply. We'll keep you posted. If you haven't heard the gossip yet..................................

"Touch It" By Nick Hutchins

Yet another protege of the Ministry, Nick Hutchins talks about his music to Tony Wadsworth on BBC Radio Leicester.

With a good old dose of common sense, once again anything is truly possible for local taxi driver turned music producer.

Nick's first single, Touch It, got it's first of soon to be many radio plays, the lyrics inspired by a lifetime of bad choices and tough breaks. Not prepared to abandon his dream and propelled by the force of his genius he's broken through the system, given up the material security of a job he hates and is now working full time as an artist and producer.

If you would like to find out more about his music and the work he is doing through Leicester College to help other artists realise their dreams get in touch.

The Ladies Of All Saints, Blaby love Looking For Harvey!

"God works in mysterious ways" the only words on the lips of the fabulous group of ladies at the friendship group in Blaby, Leicestershire last Monday evening.

They were unsure what to expect after inviting us to speak at their first meeting after the summer and to begin with we think it's safe to say were a little trepidacious to say the least. In reality we are unlikely church speakers considering our views on religion.

It was Mary's fault (front, 2nd from the left). She'd heard us talking privately at The Blaby Tea Rooms and fascinated by our conversation, asked if we ever spoke publically and would we consider speaking to her group. We can't tell you what we said, you had to be there, but we think the picture speaks for itself at the end of the evening. Sometimes you just have to change the way you look at things and the things you look at change; in this case beyond recognition.

Saving The World One By One

The Ministry Of Common Sense offers individual custom made personal programs for anyone in trouble/neurosis who truly wants to get better. It is funded solely by the sale of our extremely funny book Looking For Harvey Weinstein. Find out more, how to contact us and how you can purchase a copy on our website.

The Philosophy

We are Evangelists For Genius. Everything taught in the Ministry makes sense. Everyone who comes in is a genius. We teach people to find their genius and use it productively and positively. There are few rules, no judging and no blaming although be prepared to face your own truth.

It doesn't matter what is making you unhappy our program works for everyone, that is guaranteed but is dynamic (always changing) and personal to you. You don't always get what you want but you get what you need.

We have worked with people with drug and alcohol difficulties, homelessness, problems with weight, eating disorders, problems in marriage, divorce, problems with kids. It doesn't matter what is the cause of your misery, if you want to be happy, this is the place to come. No problem is too big and equally none is too small. Remember there are few rules:


Thank you so much to the BBC and our trusted producer and friend at Inside Out, Sally Bowman for her genius in highlighting the work. We are etnerally grateful.
