Seriously Selous?

Maybe he should have his expenses docked until he learns how to spell?

        I take it you don’t mean your body fat? I’m feeling really enriched and overjoyed in my super diverse multicultural shithouse of a Country and eagerly anticipating 10 million more lovely immigrants.

        Meats them, or beats them.
        Or beats the meat.
        Or something.

          We in the Selous Scouts only learn to track, not to spell.
          We are also very lean and do not eat burgers.

      Most of the posters on here exhibit serious problems in the spelling department.
      And as for the punctuation…

        Most of us don’t care what you think about our spelling because we aren’t professional trolls, scribes, spads or wonks.

    What really matters is if they actually VOTE English come election time.
    You can publish all sorts of polls that have people leaning one way or the other, but “there’s only one poll that really counts,” as they say…

      Sound just like passport control at Heathrow i.e. the league of nations!

      Isn’t it strange…that when you travel abroad, nearly all the foreigners that you meet speak pretty good English.

      Yet most of the immigrants that come here can’t speak a word of English.

      Funny old world eh!

    Cheap shot Guido! Love your blog but no need for this. Have sent many a short note to Mr Selous containing a misspelled word, when in my haste, I have neglected to spell check it and he has always been gentlemanly enough never to refer to my error, but instead, to address the subject in hand. Far be it from me to defend any Politician, but have to say he is an excellent Constituency MP, the occasional misspelled word or not!
