From icons of British history to geography, and the economy to the legal system, I Should Know That: Great Britain covers a wide range of topics, filling in all those embarrassing gaps in your knowledge of the fair isle. Inspired by the UK citizenship test, this useful and interesting guide includes sections such as essential British history, the current political and legal system, migration to Britain, women’s rights, geography, and culture. Learn all about the Magna Carta, the House of Lords, the Old Bailey, and the Commonwealth, and more light-hearted topics such as allotments, pets, haggis, and marmite, while scoffing at the unfortunate but hilarious gaffes made by our politicians. Packed full of information, this entertaining and fact-filled guide to Great Britain is perfect for anyone who wishes that they knew more about the UK.
