Assunto:  If you can´t beat 'em, 'join 'em (informal)
 
Mensagem:  If someone says 'if you can´t beat 'em, join 'em... ...they mean that if you can´t persuade people to change their opinions, then the most sensible thing to do is to change your own opinion: "Melanie Simmonite says she started racing 20 years ago - her husband did it so it was a case of if you can´t beat 'em join 'em." What means here the word 'Em? Thx for advance friends.
