    So you want to go back to the days when you spoke either German or French? I'm starting to think that Brexit thing is going nowhere

    The words I am speaking about but may not mention are perfectly understood when used.

    No - I have discussed that in the appropriate threads - I am talking about language.

    It is English - there is UK English and American English, the trade routes, which are the net works still used today, were forged
    by the British.

    But my question was of the English language, as used to day but of which parts of speech are found improper, not the English common law system nor your Constitution which is also founded in English law.

    I think he means words like "fuck" which is Germanic in origin, possibly from an Indo-European root. Maybe the c word? (also Germanic) Perhaps he'd prefer "arse" .. Germanic root again...

    Why he has such a desperate need of them can only be speculated upon.

    How about a translation for us?

    Lol My God that penny took a long time to drop! - but those, though the last on your list is not applicable, and others, yes - and I was going to add, as opposed to all things imaginable to do with a'' holes which seem to be approved.
    Thanks from Iolo

    This is about freedom of speech on this forum, since the poster does not want to be clear, and is getting the attention the poster wants.

    Freedom of speech.
