A member of the Scottish Parliament has suggested that Polish and Urdu be used as official languages at Holyrood!

It can only be a matter of time before the same is suggested for Westminster.

* Polish and Urdu be used as official languages at Holyrood!*

They will be here soon.

morddwyd, sorry to be so negative but I totally agree with your assertion/mood on this matter. furthermore many 'new wave' politicians [wet behind the ears] that are shoe-horned into the glare of publicity, should keep their traps shut, and get real, instead of feining a false and inappropriate 'Im a do-gooder' facade.

rant over.

No doubt we will have a fluent Gaelic speaker onboard to rip my Google translation to shreds!

What a good idea but only when ALL immigrants can speak a reasonable amount of English within two years of arriving here.

That's like saying 'I'm no racist but..' or 'I have nothing against homosexuals but...' or 'I believe in sex equality but...

Surely, you are all for Multiculturalism or you aren't. There's nothing to fear from it, is there?

How dare you compare me to the racists, bigots and sexists who are present in most forums because I express mild concern about having what are essentially foreign languages spoken officially in the legislature.

Well I read it as a tongue in cheek thread...

I didn't - you are wildly overreacting. Perhaps you would like to clear the air by finishing your sentence - you are all for multiculturalism but...what?
