Worst Britons In January 2003 we had the idea of doing a 'Worst Britons' poll, to form the basis for a satirical article in our next book. Then, after we'd put the competition up on this website we found out that Channel 4 were doing the same thing - and even using the same name (the only difference was that their Britons had to still be alive). We thought that had blown our idea, and promptly forgot about the online poll we had set up, though meanwhile plenty of people voted online. Channel 4 broadcast their results and it was so piss weak (Jordan coming in at no. 2...) that we thought we'd kick ours off again. Here's the result.
