, Boris is right on the money
No he is not. No if he puts it like that.
It is up to an immigrant to learn the language of a country he emigrates to. If he can get away without learning it at all - good for him/her. If faces many difficulties without the local lingo it is his/her problem.
I hate this totalitarian, singular, uniform un-American approach. He should learn it. Make him or kick him out. WTF?
That is wrong.
On the other hand there should not be any help for those who do not speak the local language. No translator, no info, no nothing that would be paid by the taxpayer, government agencies or what not. IF a private employer whishes to employ foreign people with no language and privies them with translator or whenever needed for them to work on his budged - fair enough.
Yet, no public, government run institution should be burdened with providing help for those who cannot communicate in the local lingo.
This English hysteria is just sad. What next the language police? Maybe change the name of the country united fascist kingdom?
I mean that progressive leftist agenda is bad enough but some of those opposing it are just not conservative or the right but some self- righteous idiots and xenophobic losers. They are minority but they are the worst because thanks to them all the rest i.e. reasonable people are tarred with the same brush.
