Twitter hero James Felton brings you the painfully funny history of Britain you were never taught at school, chronicling 52 of the most ludicrous, weird and downright ‘baddie’ things we British* have done to the world since time immemorial – and then conveniently forgot all about, of course, including:
- Starting wars with China when they didn’t buy enough of our heroin
- Inventing a law so we didn’t have to return objects we’d blatantly stolen from other countries
- Casually creating muzzles for women
- And we haven’t even mentioned Brexit yet
52 Times Britain Was a Bellend will complete your knowledge of this sceptred isle in ways you never expected. So if you’ve ever wondered how we put the ‘Great’ in ‘Great Britain’, wonder no more….
*And when we say British, for the most part we unfortunately just mean the English.
