Just thought I would share this little gem found on the BBC News website, which has both been making me titter all morning, but also highlights an important message which is oft overlooked;
It is becoming one of my pet niggles of late, telling both my boys to “Talk Properly!”. They have started, especially my youngest, going around talking with an American accent and using American terms for objects. Now whilst I am not ‘Anti-American’, I am also not American and neither are my children.
I have something of a ‘BBC English’ accent, e.g. no regional accent what-so-ever, and I am fiercely proud of my Britishness and the ‘Anglo-Spanishness’ of my little ‘uns.Â Although I am in no way in favour of the ‘Britishness’ rubbish they are trying to teach children in Schools nowadays, I do feel that we should promote and celebrate our own unique character.
Anyways I need to stop before those nasty little BNP‘ers come to my door with tears of joy in their eyes thinking that I support their even nastier policies… yoikes!
