    Re: Government lose Bedroom Tax challenge decision

    Might be worth taking a look at this before falling for any Gov. propaganda...

      The Gov. then diverts any blame from themselves by blaming schools for failing standards but are clueless.... and want to keep everyone else clueless.... about the system they've created.
      The problem with education as I see it is too much Government and managerial intervention as the teachers and the pupils have nothing to aspire too as the rules, grades and exams are constantly changing year on year.

          Although not directly related to bedroom tax as such, I work in publishing for local autorities and the NHS and it's shocking to see how much money they spend on translations catering to specific communities, especially at a time when so many cuts are being made and so many people are losing their jobs.

          You would think they would spend the money organising free English courses instead of having everything translated into Urdu, Somali, Polish, Nepalese, etc. Some were thinking about translations into an exotic Nigerian dialect.

          We are all for equality but there are hundreds of languages spoken around the world and you can't translate everything into every language, that's just totally impractical, especially when people are being left without benefits or housing due to lack of fundds.

            Can remember back in the late 80s a certain country was contemplating to use one main language for everyday use as there were 5-6 dialects on the go, a reporter reported an incident that took place on a vehicle, = 5 people spoke in different dialics, "What happen during the journey was"= a young lady was climbing on board the vehicle, the driver pulled away quick = she slipped and hurt herself in an unmentionable place, she shouted at the driver = you stupid son of a bitch! what happened next 4 of the 5 people who could understand the dialic she used as it was so near their own laughed - the one person whose dialic the country brought into use was the least known sat there not knowing what was said anf the laughter was for.

              I've heard it's the same in India, where they speak so many different languages, Indians often have to speak English between them, because they can't speak each other's dialects.

              Everyone else in the world is learning English, especially now with the internet and international business, in the meantime, in Britain, people are being discouraged from learning English! How ironic.

              London is becoming more and more like the US cities with little pockets of people who never integrate. Speaking the language is the first step towards successful integration. Having things translated into their own language, and often even read aloud to them, doesn't help when they have to deal with things outside their own area.

                If you've ever tangled with the French documentation you'll see they don't bother with any 'English' versions ...If you can't sort it out you get someone to help if you are that keen to progress with whatever you are doing....

                France...speak French

                England...speak English

                Germany...speak German

                etc etc


                says it on the tin...not difficult is it ?
