    Here we are or here we go again ?

    Which sentence is more correct :

    "Here we are again. You know what my views about the homeless. So please, stop."

    OR

    "Here we go again. You know what my views about the homeless. So please, stop."

    Thanks

    Hi,
    "Here we go again...." However note that you shouldn't include the word "what".

    Regards

    Actually, by adding "are" after "what" or at the end of the sentence, it also makes sense.
    "Here we go again. You know what (are) my views about the homeless (are)."
    Obviously it is pointless/incorrect to put both "are" in the same sentence.

    Dood.

    Re: Here we are or here we go again ?

    "Here we are again" could be all right, also. It says we are in the same discussion again, or perhaps you are even driving through an area populated by the homeless.

    To me, "here we go again" suggests greater impatience with a topic that clearly has "gone" nowhere before, and you have no interest in continuning it.

    "Here we are again" suggests you are still willing to continue the discussion, again. But you know how I feel about it, so that's the starting point.
