Description

"Gaunty's Best of British" is one man's cheerful look at what's right - and what's wrong - with his country, and a brilliantly entertaining guide to how Britain can be Great again. Jon Gaunt embarks on a tour of the best bits of this green and pleasant land, celebrating all things British. His forthright tribute is an aptly eclectic collection, covering everything from cricket, foxhunting and the FA Cup, to great inventions like the Spitfire, the Mini and the miniskirt, and our unofficial national cuisine of fish and chips washed down with a cup of tea or a pint of real ale. Whether you live in Coventry or Cambridge, Liverpool or London, now is the time to join Gaunty and start shouting about this fantastic country and what makes it so Great.show more

Back cover copy

This is Great Britain not rubbish Britain, and it's time we all started shouting about this fantastic land! This is the country of Shakespeare, the Sex Pistols and Bobby Moore. The land and people that invented football, rugby, the TV and the telephone. The home of democracy and the defender of freedom. A tolerant country and a fair country. So wrap yourself in our flag as Jon Gaunt embarks on a tour of the best (and worst) bits of this green and pleasant land, paying forthright tribute to the country's favourite pastimes, best inventions and greatest moments, and offering his diagnosis of where we've been getting it wrong. This is one man's sometimes controversial yet ultimately optimistic view of his country, and a brilliantly entertaining guide to how Britain can be Great again.
