Eams said:It might be the lack of sleep, but right I'm rather worried that you actually mean some of that Jingoistic piffle.
Though I know that it can't be the case, since you've proven yourself intelligent enough to handle a keyboard (unless you have a well-trained ape to do it for you.)
Now let's keep it civil boys.
So anyway, it seems I missed something in your post El Pip. As the critical period will be in the late 1940s and early 1950s as previously said the British will employ something we call 'Leitkultur' in Germany ( never mind that a liberal politician was felled over suggesting it ), roughly translated as 'guiding culture'. In reality this will mean that a mix between local customs and "imported" British culture so to speak that will probably go long ways to band them together and to eliminate some of the frictions that are bound to arise. One of the main points hasn't been mentoined yet, and it ties in with that very close: Language and writing. I think that if English and the English alphabet are taught at schools along with the local equivalents it will elminate the poinz you mentoined.
