list of countries where word is used reinstated. 'Commonwealth' encompasses many countries, of many ethniciites using many languages (eg I do not imagine that the work 'yonks' is used in India). It simply is inappropriate to give 'Commonwealth' as a place of usage - doesn't make sense.
Recent edit said term is used in UK, which is England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales. Confident that it's used in England, not sure about Scotland or Wales. Ireland was already listed and commonly refers to both Ireland and Northern Ireland. Reasonable to suppose term is used in both, so have left Ireland in the list.
It's also common in Australia and even has an entry in my Macquarie Slang Dictionary. — hippietrail 00:40, 12 February 2010 (UTC)
If it's used in so many places, does it really need a list at all? Interplanet Janet 11:29, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
