SDSR bites-Ouch!

The Inverse Square law in the light of SDSR cuts has resulted in a strange anomaly. No longer, it seems, for every warship sent to the knackers yard without replacement--a further Flag Officer's post is to be devised. Not so appealing for them now their gardener benefits have been removed perhaps? Better off to pension as a mere Captain maybe, with no danger of any ships left to have to go to sea in.

I think that the Norm speak babel fish interprets that as "although warships are being de-commissioned, no new Flag posts have been invented to keep the hossifers happy", but I could be wrong.

Does he come with an "Uckers ;D English, English ;D Uckers" 2 way dictionary as standard?

I seem to have mislaid my copy.

What I think Cocky Dai was trying to say. Translated from English into that language
which normally involves a lot of spit being spat on each others clothing. Thanks to
the Interweb and one of them free down-loadable translators.
Makes perfect sense to me, it does, so it does, look you.

You really need to work on your grammar.
I know.That eventful night when my school was bombed--My beloved Scholars Etymological Dictionary went with it.
Downhill since, sadly.
Ending sentences with prepositions
Confusing oxymora with hyperbole
Splitting Infinitives

The new African
Asian intake is leaving we native speakers light years behind -gramatically at least, and otherwise perhaps? Is it "we" or "us". Perhaps one of our Fijian or Zimbabwean colleagues will advise.
