    The English are born to Tweet. The laconic becomes them.

    So the point is either (a) never agree with anyone named Smith or (b) if you do agree with someone named Smith, for God’s sake have the decency to keep it to yourself.

    ‘English’? Well by nationality. But many of England’s best wits and literati have been, yes, Irish. We Celts are pretty cool.
