English as a domestic language

I must say that I was quite chuffed to discover that the BBC's Weblog Watch had linked to this site. I know that some folk think that the first "B" stands for Biased, or Blair, or Brussels, or even Burkha, but I'm sufficiently old fashioned to think that it should still stand for "British". How sad then to have to inform the Beeb that, in this country, whisky is spelt WITHOUT AN "E"!

Having an E with your whiskey could have all sorts of interesting results.

Slip of the keyboard. What lesson have we learned? Always copy and paste titles and URLs, or you'll look foolish. Apologies, David.

Don't worry, I only looked at your blog because I couldn't believe a Scottish correspondent would have an E with their whisky. Interesting blog, though.

Don't forget "Baghdad."

Ah, the Oirish influence. Educational, mind you: every Irishman, or woman, that I've met who has come from the Republic has had a pleasant accent. It takes the BBC to find ugly Irish accents! Particularly that of the Ms Whinge who reports from Israel.
