A quote from the article: A spokesman for The Taxpayers' Alliance told the Sun Newspaper: 'There will always be some cases where a translator is needed, but those who live in Britain should learn to speak English...
This is simply insane. I remember when I was a 16 y.o. Czech trainee working as a waiter at a restaurant in a small town in Austria to polish my German and to earn some money for my studies. I remember my German was more than good enough to perform my daily duties as a waiter, but if I had been involved e.g. in a road accident, I would have definitely needed an interpreter to fully understand all legal terms.
(continued) ...so that they are not a continuing burden on taxpayers.
As if those who live and work in Britain didn't pay taxes.
