Swapping anecdotes together with his audiences and spending time wandering of their hometowns, this nosy neighbour holds England as much as the sunshine whereas exploring a few of the attitudes he introduced over right here with him too.As Dara is going door-to-door looking for England during this half journey diary, half travelogue, the result's an affectionate, hilarious and sometimes eye-opening trip throughout the Sceptred Isle.
