You know why Germany and Japan made good stuff after the war? We rebuilt their factories whilst ours carried on, knackered from making war stuff!

Billions was pumped into German by the US after the war.

Surely the word you're thinking of is SCUMMER, not mush!

I was waiting for that. I'm no pikey. I had a surfacing company for many years and had some Cornish settled Gypsies that worked for me. A great bunch on the whole. Hard working, loyal and a bloody good laugh. It was rare that a gorgie (non-gypsy) was allowed to pick up their lingo. If they were in Gypsy company I had to pretend not to understand. It's well handy when it comes to getting rid of peg sellers and fortune tellers.
