that Gisela Stuart, one of the few sensible MPs around apart from her incomprehensible desire for an IN/OUT referendum, has protested about the British Counmcil promoting "more Europe" using the money they receive for the promotion of Britain, British culture and the English language. Admittedly, £20,000 out of £200 million is not much but it might be worth somebody's while to have a good look at what the British Council's Brussels office is doing anyway. And then we can close the whole organization down.
Is the Vienna office still promoting Holly Martins and his books?ReplyDelete
In 2006, the British Youth Council, in contravention of the 1996 Education Act, teamed up with the European Commission to promote a competition in UK schools to design a poster promoting the virtues of further integration. The prize was a trip to Brussels. (At the time the chairman of the British Council, effectively the financial parent of the British Youth Council, was ex-commissar Kinnock.)ReplyDelete
The Kinnocks have done very well out of all the various quangos and tranzis.ReplyDelete
Mikgen, I do hope so, though, as I recall, that was a mistake, caused by the British sergeant introducing him as the well-known writer.
If British council will work with European Commission to work on promoting posters .So it must be find Ratio Word Problems so that ratio of both countries in working for poster and export import ratios will be successful .ReplyDelete
