IMPORTANT: EEC changes to the British language.

The European Commission has just announced an agreement whereby English will be the official language of the European Union rather than German which was the other possibility. As part of the negotiations, her Majestys' Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a five year phase in plan that would be know as "Euro-English."

In the first years, 's' will replace 'c'. Sertainly, this will make the sivil servants jump with joy. The hard 'c' will be dropped in favor of the 'k'. This should klear up konfusion and keyboards kan have on less letter.

There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year when the troublesome 'ph' will be replased with 'f'. This will make words like 'fotograf' 20% shorter!

In the 3rd year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expected to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible. Governments will enkorage the removal of double letters which have always ben a deterant to akurate speling. Also, al wil agre that the horible mes of the silent 'e' in the languag is disgrasful and it should go away.

By the 4th year, peopl wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing 'th' with 'z' and 'w' wiz 'v'.

During ze fifz year ze unesesary 'o' kan be dropd from vords kontaining 'ou' and similar changes vud of kurs be aplid to ozer kombinations of leters.

After ze fifz yer ve vil hav a rali sensibil ritin styl. Zer vil be no mor trubl or difikultis and evriun vil find it ezi tu understand ech ozer. Zen ze drem vil finali kum tru!!
