Britain’s Most Spectacular Backyard Builds review

This must be the week, I’m supposing, to celebrate Britishness, or at least Englishness, in all its splendour. Combined with the regular rolling news footage of English football fans getting tanked up and beaten up by Russians (sadly, we no longer even lead the world in soccer violence), last night we were treated to a reminder of who the English would like themselves to be, factual and fictionalised: inventive and traditional, timeless and ingenius, as well as drunk and disorderly.
