The BuzzFeed UK team sent me (a clueless American) the following British slang terms from across the ocean and I was tasked with guessing their meanings. This is my terrible attempt to decipher British culture:
“A bit naff” has been given the correct British definition, because the American couldn’t even get the real meaning right.
- Donald Trump signed a sweeping executive order that dismantles many Obama era climate change regulations.
- The Republican chair of the House probe into Russia and Trump should step down after secretly meeting with a source at the White House, say top Democrats.
- The Trump White House has a habit of taking credit for business deals struck under Obama, as they did today with a Ford investment plan from 2015.
- The Scottish parliament has voted for an independence referendum that could result in Scotland leaving the UK.
