    Now I'm left wondering what TES has against Croatian.... the missing bit of the address is below...


    OK so experimenting the part that is asterisked is 's-l-a'

    Why is s-l-a being censored?

    Oh, snap, @racroesus

    "Sla.inte" is also Scottish. There's been a crossover somewhere, which isn't unusual.

    I think it must be an acronym for Senior Leadership A... You have to work out if there's something the 'A' could possibly stand for without it being a slur on their character.

    Is that when a member of slt storms out of a meeting saying "I don't give a sla"? That thought made me smile.

    Scottish and Irish Gaelic, together with Manx, make up the q-Celtic group of languages; so are very similar in many respects - grammatical, syntactical and lexical.

    Well FIFA is investigating the chant ''No Surrender'' from the England fans...



    I don't quite get how ''No Surrender'' is discriminatory... can someone explain that one to me?

    "With St George in my heart keep me English, with St George in my heart I pray, with St George in my heart keep me English, keep me English till my dying day.

    "No surrender, no surrender, no surrender to the IRA. Scum."

    I don't know what it's got to do with the World Cup.

    Paving slabs.
