Language: English . Brand New Book. Towns, cities, counties and constituent countries all come in for a lambasting in this bad-tempered and thoroughly entertaining journey round the British Isles (or, as the Irish insist on calling them, the Hibernian Archipelago), from the nauseatingly Nordic Shetlands to the suspiciously Froggy Channel Islands, from the arse end of the world (Wigan) to the heaving Sodom of the south coast (Brighton). And it s not just the places that come in for a hammering - the people too are mocked and reviled, from the imbecilic, dimwitted folk of County Kerry to the inbred, turkey-fancying natives of Norfolk, from the tight-fistedness of the inhabitants of Aberdeen to the light-fingeredness and incessant whinings of the Scouser. And - unlike Boris Johnson of The Spectator - Mr Plinth will not be saying Oops. Sorry!. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: Towns, cities, and counties all come in for some scathing criticism in this bad-tempered and thoroughly entertaining journey around the British Isles (or, as the Irish insist on calling them, the Hibernian Archipelago). Go from the nauseatingly Nordic Shetlands to the suspiciously Froggy Channel Islands, to the heaving Sodom of the south coast” (Brighton). And it’s not just the places that come in for a hammering it’s the people too! More than 1,000 quotations are collated and arranged by place, taken from a diverse range of sources, including many shockingly unreserved football chants, all for your perverse pleasure!
