Entornointeligente.com / THE EDITOR, Sir:
Billie Jean ‘Cooper’ v Bobby Riggs ‘Thwaites’ in the Battle of the Sexes!
October 21, 2018: Mr Thwaites came to the match dressed neatly and maybe naively in his tennis whites. However, soon after ‘Patois Activism’ started,
Ms Cooper’s hackles were up.
October 28, 2018: Ms Cooper would not have her patriotic Patois position muddied. She quickly steadied her aim from her safe aerie and launched a volley of ad hominem , sexist and racist barbs. Cargill dog, bright dog, Bakra – knowing quite well from her perch she could lob whatever derogatory shots she chose.
November 4, 2018: Mr Thwaites, horrified, surprised, engaged, pleased, ready, retorts – Harridan! Priceless!
Call someone a Bakra Dog. No problem, you are safe when you are Ms Cooper!
Call someone a Harridan (good English word) in response: how dare you, Mr Thwaites!
How far we’ve come!
The commentary has been great!
Thank you, Gleaner , you are the ultimate winner in this match. Awesome!!
