      This was a very significant advance in British democracy and constitutional reform and paved the way for many of our civil liberties we enjoy today (or we would enjoy if we realised how they had been fought for in the past and what a momentous struggle it had been).   John Agard has been subverting British poetry for the past 30 years with his mischievous, satirical fables which overturn all our expectations. In "We Brits", the Guyanese-born word magician gives an outsider's inside view of British life in poems which both challenge and cherish our peculiar culture and hallowed institutions/5(3).
