Only days after David Cameron introduced this policy, his own Home Office has made a mockery of it.
Perhaps it’s an indictment of the education system. Was the author Oxford-educated, like our maths-challenged prime minister?
Or maybe the author was a migrant worker who hadn’t taken the test yet. According to right-wing business models, they do come cheap.
Red-faced officials at the Home Office have been forced to correct a spelling error in a press release about new English language tests for migrants.
Language was spelled “langauge” in the original release, put out on Thursday.
But it was corrected by officials after Twitter users ridiculed the error.
BBC Radio 4 presenter Anita Anand said it was “beyond parody” that the Home Office could not spell language in a note to migrants who have been told to learn English.
