The first time I was in London, alongside the bus from the airport to the
hotel there was a van with this interesting motto painted on it:
Everyone should have their own phone
And I don't think IT&T or Sprint or some such institution installs phones
in England. Would the British phone service use the Queen's English or
I have a citation of the queen using singular they; it's common in B.
Britain according to British linguists who watch such matters.
