Yet more lies from Britain’s mainstream media. In light of the recent census, last week’s Daily Express stated on its front page, “4 million immigrants in the UK hardly speak English.”
Though this headline was based upon data from the census, The Daily Express is quite simply throwing out propaganda in order to get vulnerable people to buy copies of the paper.
The 2011 census states:
Of the eight per cent (4.2 million) of usual residents aged three years and over with a main language other than English, 79 per cent (3.3 million) could speak English very well or well.
It’s there in black and white as fact: 79 per cent of Britain speaks English very well. Furthermore, Ninety two per cent (49.8 million) of usual residents aged three years and over spoke English (English or Welsh in Wales) as their main language, so what’s all the panic about?
Look beyond the headlines. Don’t feed into their bullshit.
