It would do China the World of good

Just think, of the benefits.

You could use the Great British Pound as your national currency, get rid of that silly RMB

Then you could also drive on the correct side of the road

It appears most people miss the point in thinksmart’s post.  The adoption of ‘English’ as a national language does not necessary imply that China seeks to copy someone else’s language.  What’s in a name?  The word ‘English’ is only a term to describe a common and predominant language that is spoken around the world today.  

Countries have their own dialects – even spellings of words that are exclusively different.  China would be no different in the way it would develop the English tongue.   Chinese English would be no different from American English, Australian English, Indian English, and British English – need I go on?  

The world has evolved by design to use English as a basic international language due to the advancement of technology – there is no turning back as it was built from the bottom up.  To the doubters I say – get over it!  By all means preserve your national identity and mother tongue – but if you want to survive in a modern world – speak your own form of English.

New World Order

Supporters of the Anglo Zionist New World Order should reconsider their loyalties in view of Smartarse's
obnoxious suggestion.The bastards will eventually have us all microchipped and lobotomised.Sodomy will
be compulsory.
