A very rough guide to the English

England is a nation of "overweight, alcopop-swilling, sex- and celebrity-obsessed TV addicts", according to a new tourist guide book.

That's just England of course- the rest of the United Kingdom is full of lithe, carrot-juice supping, muesli-chomping, culturally high-brow, unpaid charity-workers.

Rough Guide says it all a bit of fun as opposed to downright racist stereo-typing; I've got their India edition at home, I think I'll do a bit of cross-checking and see how they satirise the Indian national character.

Iain MacWhirter said much of the description could apply to Scotland with a few deep fried mars bars thrown in.
