And half of them don’t work. But I’m sure that the cultural riches of beheading people and mutilating young girls that they bring them more than make up for it.

Almost 800,000 people living in England and Wales have little or no English, with more than half not working, official figures show.

A new analysis of findings from the 2011 census shows dramatic differences in the lifestyles and employment chances of migrants with a limited command of English compared with the general population.

Migrants with little or no English are 50% more likely to be unemployed than native speakers and three times as likely to have no formal qualifications.

Significantly the problem is most acute among women. Overall 60% of those living in England and Wales but unable to speak the national tongue are female.

And Muslim female settlers in the UK are also less likely to be educated and employed. Muslim families also prefer immigrant wives for their sons because they are assumed to be more respectable than the local women. Meanwhile nearly 2 percent of the population lives in its world without ever learning English or contributing to society, while milking the natives for free housing, medical care and free everything else.

    England’s loony social engineers have put a capital D on their nation’s DECLINE. Too bad mass immigration was never put to a vote.

    Apparently they know enough English to navigate the entitlement system and get medical care to reproduce. Unless the UK is stupid enough to provide translators….

      Guess what?
      The UK is stupid enough to provide translators.

    The UK Independent Party is now more popular than the Labour and Conservative parties that respectively facilitated and failed to stop the 3rd world invasion of Britain.

    Now the brits are invaded by the Muzzies who don’t agree on relgion, peace, or a sane society…See what bringing in a work force of heathens can do for you. Just like our two parties granting amnesty to illegals, the Democrats pushing it, because they stand to gain votes from it and divide the Republican party. The issue has festered over time and nothing has been done to secure the borders…Big Business Republican donars want the amnesty and cheap labor, driving average republican voter donations to other groups. The job market is abysmal which will be even worse once we add more Hispanics to the system to take away jobs from legal Americans and minorities…Does man continue to surprise us, indeed…what fools our politicians are, never talking to law enforcement and finding out just how unsafe our borders are from drug dealers and terrorists crossing from China, Russia, Yemen, Iraq, Iran, and the Middle East. Just keep making one stupid bad policy decision after another.

    It’s GOT to be higher in the US. And 20% of the people who do speak English, even native speakers who speak ONLY English have at best, a 4th grade comprehension.

    Just as a point of information, there is another ‘official language’ in England & Wales, Welsh! A person can become a citizen by knowing Welsh & theoretically a person can have lived all their lives along with all their antecedents (as far back as matters anyway) without needing to speak English That being said, most Welsh speakers are bilingual, speaking English too!
