Barry, I'll translate that for Dave......
"Well done chaps, well done!
That was an exceedingly simple thing to do. One would assume that you chaps from Eton, Harrow, Cambridge, Heriots, and Oxford all speak Her Majesty's English perfectly well. Would one be wrong in making such an assumption??
For heaven's sake man, for heaven's sake!! "
Hope you got the gist of what Barry was saying Dave!!!!
You may call it sarcasm........I, on the other hand, prefer to refer to it as a humorous observation!!!
