Have I Got News For You: Guide to Modern Britain




A witty and irreverent guide to daily life in the UK, from the writers of the hit BBC1 topical news quiz

In this comic tour of 21st century Britain, the Have I Got News for You team answer some of the most pressing questions of the age – which is ironic, since over the last 20 years the show has successfully managed to avoid answering any. (After all, politicians are the people we look to for answers, which is why everything’s going so brilliantly in the UK today, isn’t it?)

With half-baked musings on everything from immigration, religion, and the Royal Family, to the NHS, education and the media, this is a book about what it really takes to navigate the complexities of modern life. Think of it as the sort of manual you get with a car – enough information to enable you to change a sidelight bulb, not enough to re-balance the steering.

The Have I Got News for You Guide to Modern Britain covers these and many other major issues of the day in an entirely non-judgmental, non-PC, non-party-political, non-tax-deductible, non-partisan, non-invasive, non-intrusive, non-comprehensive and non-non-profit-making way. It’s guaranteed to entertain, enlighten and enrage in equal measure.
