We invented trainspotting and raves- we love saying ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ to strangers in the street but then shouting at them in football grounds- we taught the world how to write great pop music but also how to make a jolly good cup of tea.From out of this higgledy-piggledy culture have emerged the thousands of brilliantly British words and phrases we use to define it. This book is a celebration of these linguistic gems, and of the people and culture they describe.
