From the Author:

Whether you call it the Credit Crunch or the Great Recession, we all know it ain't much fun. Ever since it all kicked off with Bear Sterns, things have gone from bad to worse. We've all read the stories in the press with a mix of shock, horror, anger and bemusement: failing businesses; billion dollar bailouts; bankruptcies; civil unrest and of course, thieving politicians. As I was venting my spleen to my therapist one morning he suggested that I find an outlet for my frustration before I suffered my next seizure. What a great idea I thought, so I contacted Dan to see if he was also out of therapy and we started work on Broken Britain. It's all been worth it for a multitude of reasons and not just because it stopped me being institutionalised. If you're anything like me, this book will be the perfect outlet for your frustration at the state of the nation. It's a laugh, it's full of vitriol - basically, it's an ideal gift for anyone in need of some light relief - and that includes bankers, politicians and local parish priests. And if you can't read so well, don't worry, the pictures speak volumes. --Andrew Holmes

About the Author:

ANDREW HOLMES is someone who is deeply affected by everyone around him mainly negatively, you understand. This is a man who deliberately fills up his glass so that it s always half–empty, as it gives him something to complain about. When he is not scowling at people in the street, you will find him living in a bivouac in an ancient Hampshire forest, well away from the credit crunch.

DAN WILSON is trained as a transforming robot Jedi ninja and regularly scribbles over boundaries betwixt low and high brow art. A fan of decreating remolicious words, he has won innumerable awards for nothing special and hopes to achieve inter–spatial awareness sometime soon. Dan lives with his family in a post–postmodern treehouse, and plans on retiring to the Sea of Tranquility in the 25th Century.
