    English is in serious need of reform and simplification in order to promote it to the rest of the world. I propose we :

    1) abolish grammar, there would be no difference between the use of has, have, was, were etc, all would be correct. Time to put the grammar police out of job.

    2)Simplify words as below

    you = u
    for = 4
    need = nid
    are = r
    should = shud
    Thank you = Tq
    love = luv
    to = 2
    east = ez
    want = wan
    what = wot
    we = v
    bestiality = david cameron

    This would enhance the vocabulary of English writers as it takes up less space to remember the spelling of the words and hence more words can be remembered.

    3) Abolish all accents. Different accents should be banned. Its blasphemous. Only a single accent will pass you english oral tests.

    4) ???

    I will let you suggest the 4th.

    Should we put this on a petition?
    Omg it reminds me really bad memories . . . Of french reform :O :lol:
