I was in the book shop the other day and I saw this:
Jon Gaunt is factually correct, of course. The country in which we live is indeed called Great Britain, and not Rubbish Britain. Moreover, I can't think of a single country in the world which has the word "Rubbish" in front of it - though one or two probably deserve it. But I couldn't help wondering if he was taking things just a smidgen too literally, and if he shouldn't perhaps start looking at things on a slightly smaller scale. For example, this person
has the name "Gaunt" as a surname, but doesn't look especially gaunt to me, if we're going to take things as literally as the author of the book mentioned above. Perhaps "Fat Bigoted Shithouse" would be a better surname...?
Just a suggestion, no pressure.
