Of course you can eat that

One of a series of Public Lecture Podcasts from the University of Bath is titled “Say it with poison”:

In this lecture, Mr Russell Bowes, a freelance garden historian, will be sharing mysterious tales of how people have died in the garden, and how you can protect yourself against herbaceous murderers.

Of all things veddy, veddy British, this sounds like one of the veddiest.

    I recently decided that with Scotland’s referendum coming up I will use “British” to refer only to things pertaining to the island, and not to a government or people. I’m tired of hearing an English accent referred to as “British” as though it’s the only way anyone talks between Land’s End and John o’ Groats.

    and what to call an accent of an Irishman who emigrated to NY from Birmingham 30 years ago?

    I wasn’t going to do anything with this but since you mentioned poop, above, I must post this bit of Britishness.
