Ah to be in England now that spring is here! Among the greenery sprouting along the highways and byways of the Septic Isle are some highway directional signs telling people where to go in two (count `em, 2) languages -- English and Urdu. Here's a pic.
Urdu (in case you didn't know) is the main language of Pakistan. Why is it now seen on British street signs? Because Pakistanis are now the majority in the Leeds-Bradford conurbation -- I've seen it with my own eyes -- but cannot or will not read English, so the local council has "accommodated" them by erecting signs in their own language.
After a series of accidents involving the Muslim colonizers, Mohammed Amin al Husseini, Bradford's Grand Mufti, complained that English-only road signs were putting Urdu speakers at unnecessary risk. The signs have cost more than £100,000, but hey, it's worth it! According to a report on The New Observer site, "the bilingual road signs have proven successful and a larger roll-out of signage across multicultural cities and towns across West Yorkshire and the North West has been approved and is expected to be implemented in early 2017." Here's another one.
The New Observer comments: "The advent of Urdu street signage in Yorkshire is another indication of the full extent of the ongoing non-white colonization of Britain which has been encouraged and supported by successive Labour and Conservative Party governments over a matter of decades." Indeed. But, Walt adds, this sort of thing doesn't happen only on the eastern side of the Atlantic. The misgovernments of the USA and Canada are also keen on promoting multiculturalism and "celebrating diversity". Bilingual/multilingual signs... coming soon to a neighbourhood near you... nearer than you think!
Footnote: Isn't it delicious to see "Little Germany" written in English and Urdu... but not in German?!

London’s world-famous cockneys -- once an iconic symbol of Britain -- have been exterminated by the flood of nonwhite immigration into the UK, a new documentary by the BBC has admitted. The documentary, titled "Last Whites of the East End", will be broadcast by the BBC on May 24th. It will show that the traditional Cockney district of East London now "looks like Baghdad".
