Completely Conkers Summary


Completely Conkers: What Drives you Nuts About Modern Britain by Will Jackson

Who would live in a country where no child is allowed to win a race on sports day and you can lose your job for forwarding an `Irish joke' email? About 60 million Britons, that's who!

This laugh-out-loud collection of ludicrous laws, political correctness gone mad, moneywasting council schemes and ridiculous red tape reveals how:

  • Trapeze artists were told by insurers to wear hard hats in accordance with the European Union's Temporary Work at Heights directive.
  • After falling in the prison shower, a career criminal was compensated GBP248,000, including a substantial amount `for lost earnings'.
  • A phone contractor was not qualified to dig a six-inch-deep trench because he did not have `underground capability'.

NB: This book doesn't come with a safety warning. If you cut yourself on the paper, you can sod off.
