Anyone else find that ironic?

British English(they invented the language): 'Ello, 'an I git ya anyfing?
American(US/Canada) English: Hey how are you doing?

English in the US and Canada has developed, but still centers around proper speaking, though people using slang to some degree is common, and speaking nearly exclusively in slang is not generally accepted. In the UK speaking in something that sounds like everyone is slurring their words is s social norm.

"Bro" is short for "BROther" and makes sense.
"Bruv" sounds nothing like "brother" and if spelled phoenitically, only contains one letter from "brother".

Yeah I know, i'm a real blast at parties, but it's irritating when the US/Canada are speaking proper English and then UK people argue we are speaking "American" because 'ee don' speak lik' 'em bruv.

Living in the UK I can confirm we don't say "Ello, 'an I git ya anyfing?'

The changes made to the language were actually done with the intent of simplifying it. The letters removed from words were one's considered unnecessary, like the u in colour or the a in encyclopaedia.

It's because we took all the extra letters and threw them in the harbor along with the tea.

To tell the truth i don't really give a 						****					 how things are spelt.   
I actually use both England English and American English.   
For example I say color  but spell realise with an s why can't both forms live in harmony?

Isn't American english the way it was originally spoken, then after they broke off from the mainland, England developed a different way of speaking to distance themselves from the colonies? I could be wrong.

You're right and wrong at the same time.
Parts of America language is the original English. An example would be the word fall, it was the original English word for the time of the year where the leaves fall but there was a change in the UK and parts of their language changed and now autumn is 'correct' word for fall.
At the same time American English did change; mostly it became more simple.
