Um, song was written in 2004, in reaction to the Bush administration and the hysteria in America over the 9/11 attacks, as well as going to war with Iraq - a country that was not involved in 9/11...

And now, almost 15 years later, America is again taken up with hysteria (over immigration) and resorting to self-destructive solutions at the behest of a misguided conservative government.

I don’t disagree, really. But You jumped over an 8 year period as if there was a pause in self-destructive solutions coming from the government.

Were Libya and Syria involved in 9/11? Or were those wars and attempts at war more moral for different reasons?

Actually, it is.

I clicked on a link about the bloody silly blimp thing, and they were going on about how many 'meters' long it is.

As a unit of measurement, we use the 'metre'.
a 'meter' is a thing that measures - say, a pressure meter - or the act of measuring; 'metering' one's use of household electricity, for example.

I am here to help. There is no charge.


Yeah, you're here to help seaweed look like he's not a complete imbecile.

You *could* just as well give up on your schtick about "meter/metre".

My impression is that "metre" is the Frenchified spelling. And I know Limey well enough by now to figure he's no big fan of the French.

We Yanks saw it as our God ordained duty to simplify archaic old British spelling. So, we dropped the "u" out of color, for example. We call it a TV, not a telly.

We got rid of the unnecessary  and not pronounced u's in:  colour, flavour, behaviour, harbour, honour, humour, labour, neighbour, rumour, splendour. We kept it in words where it's actually pronounced: contour, velour, paramour and troubadour. Brits can blame the Norman French for introducing the extra letters in their words.

Similarly, more efficient American spelling dispenses with the extraneous "o" in such words as estrogen and fetal, and the extra "a" in words such as feces and gynecology.

Much of this efficiency can be attributed to American lexicologist Noah Webster, who appears to have been on a mission to reform English spelling. However much of it is also due to American impatience (and perhaps typesetters wanting to economize) with having to write letters that really have no purpose. The last sentence illustrates another difference, where Americans spell words ending in -ize while Brits use -ise. Again, the Brits are using the French practice, the Americans are actually more technically correct in ending words of Greek origin with the Greek suffix.

OK, I'm gonna stop now before I confuze meself.

It's a good thing Britain has nothing more important to worry about.
