About the book

‘In politics, if you want something said, ask a man. If you want something done, ask a woman.’

Margaret Thatcher

Instead of getting married again, I’m going to find a woman I don’t like and just give her a house.’

Rod Stewart

Ever been at a loss for words? Ever wished that the perfect wry remark or putdown would spring to mind?

The great, the good, the intellectual and the downright insulting can all be found in Brit Wit. With wonderful one-liners from such formidable figures as Churchill and Shakespeare to more recent luminaries of British stage, screen and society including Michael Caine, Victoria Wood and Eddie Izzard, Brit Wit celebrates all that makes Britain brilliant.
