Brit' Word of the Day....

Today's BWOTD is another popular one in the UK:

"I thought it was better if I just kept schtum"

'Schtum' = Silent
'Keep schtum' = keep your mouth shut

It is derived from the German adjective "stumm", meaning being either unable or unwilling to speak. This is something you would hear used regularly in the UK.
