I believe it's because after we won the war we started to change little things to make our culture different.

For instance not using the U in some words like honor and color.

35K Stirling is nearly 60K USD :blink:

To put this into perspective, I'll be spending about 1.5K Stirling, inclusive of everything.

...and Z when it should be S :laugh:

We write our dates the other way round 9/11 for example in Anglo-English is the 9th Day of November, NOT the Eleventh day of September.

you would have found that out if the London Bombings hadnt happened on 7/7 which is the same date for both cultures :laugh:

I know thats why there is a $ sign there!

All in all, this 2 half month tour will probably drain me of 5k sterling, my friends are all bringing 2k sterling spending money, plus all flights, hotels etc

We are keeping the consumer industry going. You Dave arent helping it at all!

Go get a loan that you can't afford and go wild!

In other words, see ya down the pub and first round is on my english ass!
