The  European  Commission  have  just  announced  an agreement  whereby English will be the official language  of the EU, rather  than German, which was  the  other  possibility. As part of  the  negotiations,  Her  Majesty's  government  conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a five year phase in plan that would be known as "EuroEnglish".
