Bonkers Britain: What Drives You Nuts about Modern Life (Hardback)Will Jackson (author)
- We can order this
Having a good old moan about little everyday frustrations is a quintessential part of being British, and when it comes to barmy bureaucracy we can really get our knickers in a twist! This book collects the most mind-boggling and side-splitting examples of potty political correctness, ridiculous red tape and well-intentioned (but ultimately wacky) warnings from across bonkers Britain today.
Discover the `infallible logic' that inspired a toy manufacturer to point out to customers that its plastic broomstick doesn't really fly, the `dutiful consideration' that led to sex being described as `cooperative physical fitness', and the `forward thinking' that resulted in a sign advising against hogging the middle lane being displayed on a two-lane motorway. But be warned: this book may induce bouts of uncontrollable laughter and should only be used by those properly trained in lifting books and turning pages.
