It can be perfectly acceptable to start a sentence with the conjunction ‘and’ these days despite what I was taught at school. My bugbear is the current trend for many people being interviewed to start their answer to a question with the stabiliser ‘so’.

Correction, some people think it's acceptable to start a sentence with a conjunction. It has become accepted through frequent (mis)use - just as starting an answer with "so" will doubtless become, will you then regard it as acceptable once it has become normalised?

Would you buy a chlorinated chicken off this man ?

"Donald Trump has said he believes Russian leader Vladimir Putin is “probably” behind a recent spate of poisonings and assassinations — but appeared to suggest they were not relevant because they did not happen in the US."

Language changes, otherwise we'd all still be speaking and writing like Chaucer (assuming he spoke like he wrote big grin ) or in fact, going back to the mists of time, just sort of burbling big grin

Theresa May just hasn't got it yet - if you ring Trump he'll just shout at you (especially if you happen to be a woman). I can only imagine her frustration (or maybe she really is robotic enough not to care)
