Synopsis

There'll Always be an England Social Stereotypes from The Daily Telegraph by Sue Macartney-Snape, Victoria Mather

A brilliant new collection of stereotypes from the long running Daily Telegraph series.In this hilariously mordant, yet touchingly sympathetic, book, no aspect of English life is spared. Victoria Mather and Sue Macartney-Snape return in sparkling form to immortalize those very English characters and situations we come across every day. For all of us, there'll always be an England, and, we're afraid, this is it...Stereotypes include:The Post Office QueueThe Cheryl Cole WannabeThe Rebellious CongregationThe Pub Quiz TeamThe Comical Dog ShowThe Hateful HostsThe MilkmanThe Village OrganistThe Pet FuneralPraise for previous collections:'Mather and Macartney-Snape are not so much observers, more collectors, pinning their victims like butterflies in a display cabinet ... Very enjoyable.' - Michael Parkinson'With consummate skill the authors have once again skewered our national smugness' - Nicky Haslam'A dazzling combination' - Jilly Cooper
