A guide to British-isms of the white middleclass variety

A quick guide to some phrases you may encounter....
  • "I'm not being funny but..." = I'm about to complain or say something negative
  • "yeah" = quantifier similar to "innit"/"eh", one rung up the social ladder
  • British place name pronounciation: "ces" = "s", "thw" = "v". Or just say it fast and you'll be right.
  • "You alright?" = How are you?
  • Lush = nice
