Joachim Gauck says Europe needs Britain’s democratic traditions, political courage and sober-mindedness
Germany‘s president has called for English to be made the language of the European Union as he appealed to the UK to stay in the EU.
Joachim Gauck earned applause for his remarks, made in Berlin on Friday in a speech on Europe‘s future at a time of rising German scepticism towards Brussels.
“Dear English, Scots, Welsh, Northern Irish and new British citizens, we want to continue having you on board,” he said. “We need your experience as the oldest parliamentary democracy, we need your traditions, your sober-mindedness and your courage.”
He said that to encourage a greater sense of commonality, Europe needed a common language as well as encouraging multilingualism. “I am convinced that, in Europe, both can live side by side,” he said. “The sense of being at home in your mother tongue, with all its poetry, as well as a workable English for all of life’s situations and all age groups.”
Language Standardizations is just another step to One World Government. A Countries Language is part of its Citizens Culture. There is no reason why another language should be forced upon them. Everyone speaking English is just plain Boring, & where else will English get its words from? 😉
