More recently, during a debate in the House of Lords in 1978 one of the members said: 'If there is a more hideous language on the face of the earth than the American form of English, I should like to know what it is.' (We should perhaps bear in mind that the House of Lords is a largely powerless, nonelective institution. It is an arresting fact of British politcal life that a Briton can enjoy a national platform and exalted status simply because he is a residue of an illicit coupling 300 years before between a monarch and an orange seller. (Bryson: pp. 167-198.)

But yeah, you guys keep insulting us and removing letters from our language and bathing in your ignorance, we'll just keep laughing.
