Al Murray: The Pub Landlord's Book of British Common Sense

Al Murray

4 Reviews

Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction, Humour

Britain's favourite Pub Landlord tackles modern-day mumbo-jumbo with a healthy dose of good old-fashioned common sense.

We live in an age of waffle, mumbo-jumbo and bad thinking. We're forever being fed dodgy information by so-called experts, scientists, opinion-makers, politicians, journalists and jumped-up little graduates. Their combined bad thinking includes: the idea that no one should win in running races at school, in case the losers get upset
the idea that owning a house in France is a decent way to spend your money
the idea that we should all talk about our feelings and that would make things better
speed cameras
mineral water
hummus
and the fact that everyone reckons they've got asthma. Why do we believe this nonsense? Because, as a nation we've forgotten the basic elements of common sense. Thank God then for Al Murray. Together with the collecting thoughts of hia locals, he's here to put good old-fashioned British common sense back where it belongs.
