As he's complaining of the rustic pronunciation, I think he's trying to reproduce the way they pronounced the words of the Creed, saying "OI believe in the holy ghost", instead of "I believe ...". Just a suggestion.

I'm not 100% convinced, but I do like the idea.   :D

Reminds me of my childhood. We used to go down to Cornwall every year on holiday and I noticed that the locals all had a car sticker which read "Oi be no emmet, oi be ansome".
In those heady days without internet it took a while to find out that "emmet" is a derogatory Cornish term for a tourist.  ;D
Oh, them were the days, aye...

Once again that is so elegant Bookbox. Thank you.

I'll put the 'xxxxx cast' to bed and move on.

We might get it eventually ... perhaps a clue will pop up elsewhere.

Thank you, I hadn't even noticed. I'm a relative newcomer. There are many very much longer-serving hands than I.  :)
