This week the Prime Minister warned that migrant spouses who fail language tests could be made to leave the UK. Alas David Cameron distracted from his message with two language gaffes this week which led Mr S to ask whether he should be deported.

Now it appears the problem has spread, with members of the Home Office also struggling with basic English. A Home Office press release has been sent round offering details on the language test migrant spouses will be asked to complete. However, the brain behind the email has managed to misspell ‘language’:


Langauge

Mr S hopes that the author of the email is not a migrant spouse, otherwise they could soon find themselves on a plane out of Britain.
