I consider commentary on the Guardian as acceptable on an AR board. We are the AR society not the SA Society. If anyone disagrees I am happy to have a long argument on this board, we have not had one in a long while, not since plumbing. (God I miss Ed.)
Anyway, as the war has waged on, the Guardian has covered it well. When the story of the coast guard group told the Russian navy to naff off, I got a T shirt made of the encounter, my 15 yr old daughter said it is not funny, but it would go down well at the yacht club, well not UK yacht clubs but Australian, what did Rob Boden's wife tell my wife, a bunch of white haired old men quaffing tea.
But I have noticed that the Ukrainians have adopted the phase to describe the Russians, at first it was bleeped out or written in **** etc, now I have noticed after 2 weeks of war, it is no longer bleeped on CNN for example, the war had reduced G Carlin's seven to six.
Interesting historical change in English language.
As an aside I watched R Carlyle as the British PM, I think vacant could be replaced by R Carlyle or H Grant and it would be a serious improvement. I would include C Firth as the Home Secretary and then there may be some human element to the office.
