We’re British, Innit by Iain Aitch

My second book is a lexicon of Britishness. A snap shot of pre-Brexit Britain in 2008, with some curveballs thrown in for good measure. It came out of my explorations of what Britain is in the 21st century, as well as numerous articles about places and people in the UK.

“From Alcopops to X Factor via Churchill and Ovaltine, Iain Aitch celebrates modern-day Britain in this acutely observed and hilariously funny A-Z of all that we are and all that we do.

Whether it is our insatiable passion for tea, a sense of fair play, our desire to form an orderly queue at the drop of a hat, or simply our ability to screech ‘coo-ee’ at the top of our lungs, everything you’ve ever regarded as being uniquely British is within these pages. Unlike the Government’s Citizenship Test, this is the real Britain – the little land that we affectionately know and love for all its quirks and traditions.

Guaranteed to bring a smile of recognition to even the stiffest of upper lips.”
