I HAVE read that article, several times, carefully but at present am unable to identify where I have changed words "skip through it and replace words, may, possible, could with words more suited to [my] ideals"

Would you please post some examples where I have done that ?

The original promise was made by Nadhim Zahawi at the time it f the abortive threat over Article 16. Zachariah talked about "helping the EU with supply problems" Truss said that they could give spare supplies to the EU, but has declined to say when.

Was that my error ? Interestingly, it was reported elsewhere as a promise to supply spare, but the details of those quotes are behind paywalls and I will not take those routes to help you in your quest for clarity.

If I wish to comment on English Grammar standards, have a look at this direct quote from you;

" you need to actually read it not just skip through it and replace words, may, possible, could with words more suited to your ideals, the English language and grammar really has gone tits up over the year"

Is there an error in that quote ? I think there may well be.....

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

Let's not deconstruct that sentence Dave. There are too many errors to mention in it. I do love the irony of employing the phrase tits up in a sentence complaining about the use of poor English.

Nit picking will not get you anywhere, we all can turn the written word to satisfy the things we believe in that suits our beliefs, that applies to me and you.

No matter what I think of you Erneboy my impression is that you are still a self riotous **** that thinks you are above everybody else, that is sad, I'm sure that tits up rang a bell with you.

I expected no less from you Barry. You are a real charmer and you've just demonstrated it to everyone once again. Thank you. The first couple of times people might have put it down to a little lapse but doing it repeatedly removes that possibility.

Sadly, you have chosen not to help me improve my English Grammar standard by giving me the example(s) of where and how I had altered words as I asked.

That saddens me because I am a keen believer in trying to improve by using the wisdom of others.

Perhaps you might like to rethink your acerbic comment and help me in my quest.

Please, feel free, to show me examples of where I have altered (important) words to make them fit what I believe to be correct.

Obviously, my education lacked the finesse that you believe should be apparent.

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

I suspect it’s ‘Little England good English day’ today as he’s got a write bee in his bonnet.
That’ll just finish him off, right?!

In fairness it all deflects from the output of his great Brexit victory as he can’t rub in all the great benefits.

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, it’s in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with
