***Special Offer For Residents Of Great Britain***

Last month’s Giveaway was for readers here in Japan, and the three lucky winners will soon be receiving their FREE paperback copies of “Hi! My Name is Loco and I am a Racist.” Yet, again, the promotion was such a success that I’m doing it one more time!

Only this time it’s exclusively for readers residing in Great Britain!

(…and yes I get confused about the difference between GB and the UK, but, according to Goodreads, this is for those good folks living in GB…hell, you know who you are: The people residing in the pink. See pic)

Just follow the link below to the Goodreads website for more details. (Goodreads chooses the winners using their own internal system) No entries will be accepted after September 30, 2012. The one (1) lucky winner will be contacted and their book shipped out early October.

Again,

***This month’s giveaway is ONLY for residents of Great Britain***

Got your copy already? (thanks btw) Well, share this offer with your friends in GB via Facebook, Twitter, Google plus, etc…

Thanks in advance,

Loco

    The pink section of the map is actually highlighting the UK. Great Britain is the name of the Largest Island of the British Isles. The UK is short hand for the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. One is a Country, the other a Location. The more you know, eh?

    Sadly, in either case, I’m in the Republic of Ireland and therefore outside both Great Britain and the United Kingdom. So I guess I’ll just wish good luck to those who can enter!

    Desworks beat me to it with the geographical pedantry. Damn you Desworks, if I don’t have that I’ve got nothing.

    Though I can chip in to forestall the accusations of arrogance and superiority people assume the ‘Great’ implies. Here it just means ‘big’, as compared to little Britain. Also known as Brittany (with an A), which is that bit sticking out of north-east France. Not that bit. That’s Normandy. More to the left.

    I mean we are all arrogant with inherent assumptions of cultural superiority, but the ‘great’ isn’t proof of that.

    Here endeth the lesson.

    I think the British Empire employed more slaves across it’s empire at one time than any other empire in history including the Roman’s and Egyptians combined…or unofficially approved of it anyway. Being American and looking at England (I was born in New England near the “Freedom Trail”) they seem like big brothers that had a terrible accident and are now handicapped and we gotta take care of them…cuz…they’re family I guess?

      Terrible accident? Lol to me neither the US nor UK were victims of accidents but were, due to circumstances (though I want to say heredity), were infected with the same malady: hegemony. greed, avarice, perpetual warfare, racial and cultural dominance, racial condescension, social inequality, are among its most dangerous symptoms, a kind of gangrene of the soul. UK discovered the collateral damage it causes its host first and tried its damnedest to cure it, with the spiritual equivalent of leeches, bloodletting and amputations, unaware that it was incurable. The US, having been affected a little later that the UK,(due to its humble and utopian beginnings) had the opportunity to watch the British empire’s valiant efforts fail and learned that trying to cure it is a waste of time…that the only way to control the condition was to control the symptoms and make it chronic instead of terminal. Thus we have the current state of affairs. Two brothers, both suffering from the illness, managing the symptoms, with the social equaivalents of bandaids, ibuprofen, antibiotics and bedside manners, unable to cure it…or unwilling to. Who knows?
      I’m just sayin…

    Interesting Chris should go for the big brother comparison, as we’ve always rather seen America as an ungrateful and rebellious teenager, desperate to leave home before they’re ready and unwilling to see any redeeming features in their parents because they’re just, like, soooooo embarassing. You try and tell them about the mistakes you made and lessons you learned (Slavery – bad. Empire – bad. Irony – good ;), but they’re never going to listen and in the end you just have to let them go and learn for themselves while you stay at home getting increasingly bitter at their lack of gratitude, stumbling around the house at 4pm still in your dressing-gown, swigging gin directly from the bottle, starting whistfully at their photo and alternating between drunken rants that you ‘gave them the best years of my life!’ and quietly sobbing into the stuffed toy you bought them as a child but they never even played with.

    All of which is by way of disguising my pedentry fail. Brittany of course sticks out of north-WEST France. The bit sticking out of north-east france is Germany.
