In the country reacted angrily to statements by the chief contender for the post of Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who on Friday expressed the view that people must first turn to speak the English language.

In our country, something often began to come across the place where for some people English is not main language, and this must change, said Johnson.

As noted by Johnson, migrants arriving in the country, should first learn English and strive to "be British and feel British."

Comments Johnson angered many Britons, who saw in them "echoes of manuals populists with the criticism of immigrants" and "disrespect for the millennial language, which is native to the region." In particular, a member of the Scottish Parliament Angus MacNeil has called Johnson "an idiot and an ignoramus" and recalled that English belongs to the Germanic group of languages, at the time, "crushed" native to the British Isles Celtic languages.

the Statements of policy surprised even his own sister Rachel, who noted that his family members often communicated in Greek.

In the UK spent a lot of resources on the preservation of minority languages, including Welsh, Gaelic, Anglo-Scottish and the Irish. Its inhabitants speak many other languages including Polish, Punjabi, Arabic and French.
