    Early days yet, but Team GB have yet to medal at the winter Olympics. Germany has medalled several times already.

    My team, West Ham haven't Cupped or Trophied for several years and I'm not too confident of them Championshiping any time soon.

    Nope.

    It's not Queen's English and rattles our nerves and rankles our ankles!

    Do you know that apparently 60%+ of Brit kids can't spell everything correctly and over 70% have no grammar accuracy?

    Litterally had 2 t's like litterature, and excercise as in written excercises was different from physical exercise a vin exertion, but now I can't find evidence.

    That's Amazing! Awesome! Wicked!

    Isn't it?

    No it's shocking, and it's also disgraceful that educated twots who should know better have dropped and cropped our standards dramatically grammatically, by changing our language to suit them and Yanks.

    Yebbut... Nobut... Like... You know... So... ???

    We got a wallop or three from our teachers and lots of red crosses and had to do it again, and we remembered to get it right. And so should today's kids.

    Hurrumphhh!!

    I thought every one suffered that:

    Well done! No idea they had made a song about it. Now I even know how to pronounce it.

    I doubt you'd want to know either..........mind you what about mechanophilia? I reckon you'd be up for that!
