By chance, I read this quote by E.M. Foster today and I got curious. It says:
"Two cheers for Democracy: once because it admits variety and two because it permits criticism."
One plus two, isn't that altogether 3 cheers?
That's actually EM Forster, and the correct quote is '. . .one because it admits variety. . .'
There are only two reasons given for cheering democracy.
Thanks to Rover for the corrections and to bhai. for replying.
I didn't intend the quetion to be in any way a serious inquery. But is it grammatical in the way he distributes the cheers? (this question sounds funny) Shouldn't it be "...one because...and the other because...", or perhaps "the first because....and the second because...", or maybe even "one because....and one because..."?
Isn't that how you would distribute any number of things, for instance, cookies: one for Joen, one for Jane, one for Pete.....
Yes, yes, thank you Baih, Now it's clear. And thanks for the correction from "got" to "became" as well. Hope you don't mind the abbreviation.
