Description

This book is about my empirical research for 'Middle England' in little Britain - in a very similar way that Bill Bryson travelled around the country in Notes from a Small Island. Therefore like: Bryson, Voltaire (Candide's adventures) and Michael Moore (in the USA about G. W Bush, etc) I am also trying to be highly amusing about my quest, come search for this concept; in this very small Island in a very large Universe. In essence the basic premise and conclusions seems to be that the rightwing press thought this whole idea up of 'Middle England' based on some very dubious assumptions about social reality and probably some hidden agendas of their own - and believed as an axiom by nearly all the journalistic professions' and most Politicians in the land.now! But I question outright that this is a self evident truth and suggest that it is probably nothing more then a fiction, come myth if we analyse the British class structure in a Sociological and analytical way: like I do and go out there in the real world to find the truth, about 'Middle England'. In other words like God - this may be nothing more than an abstract concept - but believed by billions of people around the globe as an historical fact and very important to the true believes (sorry friends). No doubt 'Middle England' is just as important to the Daily Mail readers and journalists working for this rag as religion is to the world and just as true, but then again were is the real hard scientific empirical evidence for both concepts if you are a cynical old git like me? Perhaps only Professor Pangloss really knows the answers to these ideas; if they exist - this is not to say that God or 'Middle England' is a complete myth. I am only just suggesting that there is very little real evidence for either.hence, please read on for the truth of 'Middle England', according to Brian V Peck.
