Nobody in England speaks like this, you realise. Except for wankers, of course.

I don't think anyone's said the word 'bloomin' since about 1833, but I could be wrong. --Magicaltrevor 01:00, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

..i've said bloomin...

Can anyone actually read this?

Hey! I say bluming everyday! But I pronouce it bluming, not blooming. Subtle difference. Hpmons 09:35, 3 June 2006 (UTC)

Where'ja learn ta talk like that? Can't make head' ner tails of it, no-how. ' ' how they speak in England and them?

The entire section of 'British English' seems to be written in phonetic Australian slang. Australians are wonderful, funny and kick the arse off the English at most sports to great comedic effect, but this section should properly be in an article related to Australian English. But then I'm a Nazi. (Not really. I'm a firm lesbian.) Myocardialinfarction 16:34, August 10, 2010 (UTC)

I removed the phonetic whatever-it-is spelling from the 'dialects' section.
I'm sad that this article is just going to be deleted. Can we maybe remove the fix|notfunny template? I know it's still not funny, but we really should have an article on this because there's so much to be said, you know? What do you all say?
Since this article is about English in general, it should try not to come off as though it's really about English English (not British as that's too broad a category) and all those other thingies are just wrong. No. The English may have originated their language, but they are no longer in charge of it, even if they think they are.
'English is proven too stupid for the higher orders to understand' should maybe go. It looks as if it belongs on a more serious kind of site. Llwy-ar-lawr (talk) 12:55, March 5, 2013 (UTC)
