The 4th of July is US independence day. The day when US citizens celebrate the founding of their nation and their independence from Britain. And good luck to them we say in Britain. However, though we may turn a blind eye to the colonists throwing our tea into Boston Harbour, and refusing to pay the taxes they owed to King George the 3rd. (They owed this to pay for the British army that had protected them from the French, and their Indian allies, during the Seven Years War). We are not at all pleased about them stealing our "U"s.
As I type this article the spell checker is indicating that I have spelt HARBOUR incorrectly. It thinks the letter U does not belong there. In fact many words with an unstressed U in English find the U removed in American spelling. Humour, colour, manouvre, behaviour, honour, labour, neighbour, rumour, splendour, flavour, — In case the damned upstart colonists have stolen the letter U. They spell these words without it.
It is English that we are speaking — The Queens English — so one should spell these words in the same way Her Majesty would WITH A U.
