    spoke like English butlers

    "He pushed forward the agenda of integrating his nation into the European Union. It was not an easy task. After a decade of banditry, the country had very few friends among those who attended diplomatic receptions and spoke like English butlers."
    I suggested it was a perfect English, but then found an opposed reference.
