Britain and Australia - Something We Share

In the wake of the bombing in Sweden a couple of days ago, I realise there is something that our two countries almost certainly share: we would both find it extremely difficult to find a police spokesman who speaks a foreign language as fluently as the police representative from Sweden speaks English. In fact, I would go further than that: I think we would both find it fairly tricky to find a police spokesman (spokesperson, whatever makes you happy) who speaks English (as opposed to Plodspeak) as fluently as the police representative from Sweden.
