An Englishman Abroad

Typical Englishman abroad. Steve McClaren has only been in Holland 6 weeks and he's already doing the pigeon English thing. They should put this stuff in a Rough Guides guidebook. If you are an Englishman on holiday in a non-English speaking country, simply speak slower and louder at Johnny Foreigner. Failing that, try speaking in the accent of your host, that's bound to work, the non-English speaker will understand you perfectly!
