Don’t Get Egg on Your Face! Full English Exposé – Silly Season

The Full English Exposé teaches you more about the English speaking world, so you can be confident you know what you are doing, and you don’t do or say the wrong thing, and don’t get egg on your face. This edition of the podcast we’re helping make sure you don’t get egg on your face, with the Full English Exposé, all about Silly Season. Silly Season If you follow UK news, or read the UK papers, you might have noticed that things got a little strange in August. There was less political reporting, the quality of the articles went downhill, and there were more weird and wonderful stories than usual. Why? Because Parliament was on holiday. September is when our MPs take their breaks, so there’s a lot less news about, especially for the more serious papers. Hardly any laws get passed, there aren’t many votes or debates or press releases, and there’s no Prime-Minister’s Questions. But, people still want news, and companies still want to sell newspapers and advertising space. So,...

This edition of the podcast we’re helping make sure you don’t get egg on your face, with the Full English Exposé, all about Children’s Birthday Parties. Children’s Birthday Parties in the UK Although the ‘Happy Birthday to You’ song is known everywhere, not everyone knows what else we do for young children’s birthday parties in the UK. Boys will dress smart and girls will wear their party dresses, unless, of course, it’s fancy dress. The house will be full of balloons and bright decorations. Presents are a big deal, and those brought by guests will be opened with an air of ceremony. Presents often come with colourful birthday cards often displaying the age of the birthday boy or girl, and sometimes with badges to wear. Guests can be given funky cone party hats, and there’l...

The British Fox Hunting Ban The British tradition of fox hunting with hounds, horns, horses and huntsmen sporting their distinctive red coats is facing a threat.

Let me introduce you to Crazy Aidy, my friendly, but odd, neighbour. Something weird is always happening to Adrian. This time, Aidy is in trouble for not paying his TV licence Knock knock Me: Good morning Aidy Aidy: Hi, I was wondering if you’d do me a favour. Me: Of course, what do you need? Aidy: I need to borrow some money, I’ve got myself into a pickle. Me: Yes, as long as it’s not too much. Aidy: I need £220, and I’ll pay you back at the end of the month. Me: I can lend you that, no problem. I’ll nip to the hole-in-the-wall and drop it in this afternoon. Aidy: Thank you, you’re a life-saver. Me: So, how come you’re short on money, is everything ok? Aidy: Oh, yes. Fine. It’s just that I changed by bank account, but forgot to tell my work. So, I didn’t get last month’s wages. Well, it’s sorted out now, but I won’t be paid until the end of the month. I had enough money in my account, but then I got this fine. Me: Oh, what fine? Aidy: It’s for not paying my TV licence...

Sizzlin’ Stories – Crazy Aidy, Tax

Let me introduce you to Crazy Aidy, my friendly, but odd, neighbour. Something weird is always happening to Adrian. This time, Aidy has some suspicions about a tax bill. Knock, knock Me: Hello, Aidy. What can I do for you? Aidy: Do you mind if I use your phone? Mine’s been cut-off. Me: Not at all. Come in. Aidy: I need to call the fraud prevention hotline. Me: Oh no, you’ve not been the victim of a fraud, have you? How awful! Aidy: Oh no. Someone tried to defraud me, though, and I should inform the authorities so they can be stopped and people warned. I mean, I wouldn’t fall for a thing like that, I’m far too careful, but someone a bit less street-wise might. Look at the letter, it’s quite professional. Me: It does look professional, it’s just like one I’ve received from the Council. How did you know it was fake? Aidy: I get one every year, about this time. The first time, several years back, I was fooled. Me: Oh no, did they take your money? Aidy: Actually, no. I forgot to p...

The British Obsession with Tea The British are known for our obsession with tea. We drink over 60 billion cups of tea a year. That’s more tea than 5300 Olympic swimming pools.

In the 19th century, we imported so much tea from China, in exchange for rare silver that it caused a trade deficit for the British, and big money ...
