Being an Uppity Faggot of strictly descriptivist sensibilities, I’m afraid I must defer to our sister across the Pond, Strexit , on the proper care and feeding of the title.

The Duchess of Somerset, Fred Shirley, may also desire input. I do so strive to put up with the excentricity of Transatlantic orthography and usage, you know.

Fred tolerates my American language peculiarities, but one wonders how willingly.

If she every succeeds in overthrowing those pretending Windsors, it’s entirely possible that one shall witness grammar wars such as the world has never seen.

Never seen?

Did I really say that?

Fred, save me! His Trumpiness is seeping into my language!

I need a Jeremy Corbyn fix!
