English applications in English shock!
The England project tells us about Radio 5 Live this morning complaining about discrimination in the new application forms for a licence to provide entertainment to the public under the Licensing Act 2003. The discrimination is the fact that the forms are in English.
An English venue applies for a licence from an English authority and the application form is in English! How discriminatory! I mean, you'd obviously expect to go to somewhere like Saudi or India and expect them to translate everything for you right?
Of course you bloody wouldn't and why should we? This is England, our language is English.
There are quite a few official languages in the UK and this should be the limit for translations. If you want to live here and do business here then you should do so in our language. If you can't or refuse to use one of these languages then why are you here?
