Thread Name: BS: Happy Holidays, Colonials!!
Subject: RE: BS: Happy Holidays, Colonials!!
No-one from UK could use the term "Colonial" in anything other than an ironic sense..

It was only meant as a joke, in the same way that people will often use "old Bean" or "pip-pip" in conversation with an English person, or tease a Scot about haggis...

Anyway - Happy Fourth of July to all of you from all of us..
