Global Village Idiot

Author(s): John O'Farrell


'This week the first pet passports came into effect. Around the country dogs have been hopping into photo booths and trying to look as relaxed as possible, which is not easy when you know you're not allowed on the chair.' Gathered here are the best of John O'Farrell's newspaper columns for the Guardian and the Independent which saw him win the coveted Best Columnist of the Year Award at the prestigious British Liars Awards. Among many other things, he claims that the only conviction in the Tory Party will be when Jeffrey Archer gets sent to prison; that scientists have created a genetically superior monkey which will advertise lapsang souchong instead of PG Tips; and that with the election of George W. Bush, the global village has finally got its own global village idiot. John O'Farrell is the author of The Best a Man Can Get and the No. 1 bestseller Things Can Only Get Better; Eighteen Miserable Years in the Life of a Labour Supporter. His name has flashed past at the end of such productions as Spitting Image, Have I Got News For You, and, more recently, the film Chicken Run. He is a regular guest on Radio 4 for shows such as The News Quiz and writes a weekly column for the Guardian. He lives in Clapham with his wife and two children. Paperback (B-Format)
