The best thing about being so far away from the UK is that I don’t have to occupy my brain with the tiresome cultural phenomena that make up about 50% of the conversations I have there. While I was in Prague in 2002-2004 I managed to miss out on Little Britain, Abi Titmuss, Busted, The Libertines, Robert Kilroy-Silk’s political career, Fathers4Justice and The Osbournes.
On my return John Peel died, the crazy frog went straight in at number one and somebody gave James Blunt a recording contract. Not a great year.
It’s been about seven months since I last stepped on English soil.
Please tell me what have I missed this time, so far.
