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.
Of The World - nearly all the extra articles especially
written for the book - including colour pics - plus some of the

only to participants of this and past conferences and to prospective
participants of future conferences. It represents a summary of
the panellists' opening remarks for each session, and of the
comments and interventions in the subsequent discussion."
