Bonkers Britain : What Drives You Nuts About Modern Life, Hardback

Bonkers Britain : What Drives You Nuts About Modern Life Hardback



Have you heard of the country whose schools have banned the use of egg boxes and loo rolls in craft lessons as they pose a health risk (they could be carrying salmonella, don't you know), and removed pear trees from a picturesque lane because they were too dangerous?

No? It's Britain! This laugh-out-loud collection of ludicrous laws, money-wasting council schemes and ridiculous red tape reveals how: * A city council removed the conkers from dozens of horse chestnut trees, fearing for the safety of tree climbers searching for the ultimate sixer. * After falling in the prison shower, a career criminal was compensated GBP248,000, including a substantial amount 'for lost earnings'.

WARNING: This book should only be used by those trained in lifting books and turning pages.

May induce laughter - read with caution and at your own risk.
