Description

STUPID WHITE MEN - from Britain. A witty account of our nation today from the ever-popular Bremner, Bird and Fortune'Funny when it goes in for burlesque but screamingly so when it simply delivers the evidence' IndependentLike the critically acclaimed Bremner, Bird and Fortune series on Channel 4, YOU ARE HERE picks away at the scabs of international politics with the voice and credibility of Rory and the two Johns, and appeals to an audience hungry for a mix of entertainment and information - tough facts made funny. The book lampoons the contradiction at the heart of Britain since Tony Blair became Prime Minister after the landslide General Election result of 1997. In the fog of confusion created by New Labour, it can be difficult to discover the real truth. After all, why spin if you don't want people to get dizzy? What the British reader needs is this witty and original map explaining how it all connects, a guide to how we got here - completely updated now for paperback edition.show more

Review quote

..paints as accurate a picture as possible of where we are now and how we got here. -- Ben Snowden * ECOLOGIST, 1 Mar * Devotees of their acclaimed television show will love this new 'dossier' from Bremner, Bird and Fortune. Others should read it, not least because it is very, very funny? where this book really packs a punch is in its assembly of hard facts about international affairs and British society. Satire might not be dead, but the world today, it seems, is truly beyond parody. * THE OBSERVER, 7 August * An entertaining and thought-provoking mixture of extraordinary research and satirical analysis. * SUNDAY TELEGRAPH, 31 July *show more
