nytimes gets it wrong about english

Saturday, May 6th, 2017

jean-claude juncker, president of the european commission jokingly (?) said that the english language was headed for the doors in europe. the nytimes defends the use of english and the new york rag erroneously states that english will still be the language of choice in the EU because it is the official language of malta and ireland. but when countries join the EU they have to pick 1 language as their official language. when malta joined, they picked maltese and ireland picked irish. so juncker is actually right. as the brits head for the doors the english language will officially go with them as there will be no other country in the EU whose stated official language is english.
