Fully aware of the grammatical implications. It was well considered. Your mind, sadly, imputes otherwise. In the 1950's when my wife and I had a drink with him ---and later in the 70's when we were visiting friends in Rhodesia following UDI where Charlie, defying British Government strictures, performed at a posh nightclub in Salisbury. We had more drinks with him. He was a splendid chap. I recall him asking the TV cameraman if it was in colour. If it isn't he said, I'll look like a bloody negative.
Anyroadup it looks as if the consensus of intelligent opinion dictates that Boris and Donald would not contribute towards (or is it toward?) More Picturesque Speech.
We'll leave it lie there.
Can you just make a list of who and where you and your wife have had drinks with over the years?
