Yahoo News UK and YouGov have launched a new podcast called ‘Britain is a Nation Of…‘, a stats-based look at the quirky side of British behaviour.

This week’s discussion is all about the very British topic of manners, with input from William Hanson, professional etiquette and manners consultant and the host of the ‘Help I sexted my Boss podcast’.

Tune in to find out how many Brits think it’s OK to check social media during a meal at a restaurant with friends, and to hear whether Brits really are as polite as the rest of the world thinks.
