Over here we are perhaps a little more aware he was one of us and he
wrote in 'our' language. Our language is so successful at enabling
expressive communications that others around the world have mutilated
our language whilst attempting to improve upon it :-)

Eric Arthur Blair (25 June 1903 – 21 January 1950).
