Oscar Wilde (who was Irish) said that the English and the Americans are common people divided by a single language. Or something like that. He was right. The divergence between English and American can cause some serious confusion.

Here are some examples

 

FCRO Subsection: 

The European Commission (EC) has decided that the European Union (EU) system of Directives isn't working when it comes to money laundering and terrorist financing. They are right. What's taken them so long to work it out? The question is this: have the identified the correct matters and will they get it right this time?

FCRO Subsection:

Headline: Lewis Hamilton has won 10 races this year, Nico Rosberg has won 9. Hamilton won in Abu Dhabi, Rosberg won the championship. Hamilton has had a disproportionate number of mechanical and electronic failures but he's also had a propensity to ruin his own starts. But, even so, Hamilton does seem to have been hard done by and even his team has, from time to time, been a little less than even in their support for their two drivers.

21 races across five continents and barely time for the teams to breath: for the mechanics and technicians, strategists and skills we never see, who commit their lives to F1, this morning the morning most of them, on a personal level, have been waiting for. They are going home and, after the trucks get back to base and everything is put into its locker, they can go home and see families that have been largely neglected for the past eight months or so. But for one person it's a eulogy, for three people it's the end of an era.
