Ignore that last post. Writing it killed an hour on a rainy Sunday, but all it really says is that nobody speaks like that.

You've obviously never lived in Dudley.


Or worked in a call centre (not in a call centre now, but I do take a lot of calls each week, talking to people from different strata of society).  I don't have the prog to hand, so can't check which character's saying what, but there are plenty of people who mix tenses and insert incorrect words.  And also start sentences off with the word 'obviously' then go on to talk about something I couldn't possibly know about themselves...

... but General Kestra isn't one of them. See my previous, lengthy post on the topic - like John Doe's diary, the writing gets smaller as the author loses his grip on reality.
