Description - Littlejohn's Britain by Richard Littlejohn

Richard Littlejohn describes his job as sitting at the back throwing bottles. His twice-weekly columns have become an essential fix for millions of readers of the Daily Mail and the Sun over the past two decades.

His cast of characters including Two Jags, the Wicked Witch, Captain Hook and the Mad Mullah of the Traffic Taliban have become part of the fabric of the nation. ittlejohn ridicules the country Britain has become over the past ten years the barmy bureaucracy, the surveillance state, the petty interference in our lives, the suffocating regulations, policemen and judges who think they re part of the social services, the insanities of the elf n safety industry, which have created such idiocies as forcing revellers celebrating Guy Fawkes Night to watch a bonfire on a big screen. ittlejohn has a bloodhound s nose for cant, hypocrisy and lunacy and an unparalleled talent for pouring scorn on the arrogance of the powerful, while making his readers roar with laughter.

Author Biography - Richard Littlejohn

Richard Littlejohn is an award-winning journalist and broadcaster, and author of two best-selling books. He has written for London's Evening Standard and Punch and is still a contributor to the Spectator. His twice-weekly columns in the Daily Mail and the Sun earned him a place in the inaugural Newspaper Hall of Fame as one of the most influential journalists of the past 40 years. He has been Fleet Street's Columnist of the Year and was named Irritant of the Year by the BBC's What The Papers Say awards for his unrivalled ability to get up the noses of the Establishment. His extensive radio and television work has brought him both a Sony award and a Silver Rose of Montreux. ittlejohn's satirical novel To Hell In A Handcart was the fastest-selling fiction paperback on its release in 2001. His highly acclaimed non-fiction book You Couldn't Make It Up skewered John Major's Conservative government - much the same as Littlejohn's Britain does for the Blair years.
