JUDGE SPARKS ROW AFTER TELLING CHINESE DEFENDANT TO LEARN ENGLISH-AT LAST!

A judge came under fire from ethnic groups last night after telling a Chinese woman to spend the next year learning English to 'make life easier'.
Judge Julian Hall made the remark as he sentenced Wei Cai for deliberately driving her car into her husband's during an argument near a parade of shops in Oxford.  Cai, 31, needed an interpreter to admit dangerous driving and causing damage to property.  Sentencing her on Friday, Judge Hall told Cai: 'I shouldn't say this, but I will. I would spend the next 12 months learning English. It would make life a lot easier.'

TOO RIGHT JUDGE! All immigrants should at least go to a learning centre within twelve months of settling in this country, to learn English, the History of Great Britain and our customs and traditions.  If I went to a foreign country whether it be China, Australia or India, I would expect the same and if it was not on offer from the State, I would then do it off my own back whether it was the law or not.  THAT'S WHAT WRONG.  We are creating GHETTOS in this country where no one speaks English or for that matter, WANTS TO!

Steve, It's the same anywhere in the world. Well apart from Ireland. There you'll get a Pepsi with a straw in it.

Good post DL and really it's about time we all supported this man.

When I worked abroad I was told 'We do speak English but we won't' and that was that. Although I'd had the language at school it was different working and living with it day by day. By 3 months I was able to converse easily, by 6 months able to read and write like a native. No interpreters either, just a dictionary.

I know Rosie, It's ridiculous. You go to the Hospital and there's a list of about a hundred different languages that they can get an interperator for in 2 minutes flat. I don't mind if someone genuinely comes here as an asylum seeker and has problems speaking English but some of them refuse to learn. I speak Spanish reasonably well and you cringe when you are in Spain and you here British people and I would say usually English People who STAY there and think they are integrating into Spanish society if they can ask for a coffee in Spanish.

If this woman can't speak English than how on earth did she pass her driving test? How can she read the road signs and any other warnings. This Judge should be promoted.

Stouters, nice to hear from you again. Where you away on your holidays?This judge should be promoted but it is a sad fact that people who can't speak English and are taking their driving test are allowed to have an interpreter in the back. Perhaps if they could not take a test until they could speak English it would make them learn it a bit quicker or just a bit, period!
