    Default Achtung - Kellner sprechen Englisch

    Oh goody some minor German politician is a complaining about foreigners.

    'You would never find this lunacy in Paris': Angela Merkel's potential successor hits out at waiters in Berlin for speaking English
    Jens Spahn said hearing waiters speaking English in Berlin 'drives me up the wall'
    37-year-old politician insisted you would 'never find this kind of lunacy in Paris'
    Junior finance minister tipped to succeed Angela Merkel as German chancellor
    Jens Spahn slams waiters in Berlin for speaking English | Daily Mail Online

    all one big happy family maybe this is hate crime caused by Brexit?

    By the way Jens, yes you do see it happen in Paris,Bonn,Greece,Istanbul, Amsterdam & apparently Barcelona (the locals didn't speak Russian when my colleague went there).
    "If you didn't do anything that wasn't good for you it would be a very dull life. What are you gonna do? Everything that is pleasant in life is dangerous."

    I want to see the hand of history on his collar.

    Guard these little vignettes close to your heart. They will be a great comfort to you in the dark days ahead, when you're trying to remember why Brexit was such a good idea.

    In Austria at out hotel they had one English waiter. The Austrians all spoke excellent English. However the Russians spoke English with such a heavy accent the Austrians could not understand them.

    The only way people of different nations can communicate is in English - the Americans saw to that. One day there will only be one language in the world. German after Germany creates the 4th reich.

    ah so if some member of the British public complains all they hear is Eastern European & Indian languages in their area they are racist but when Frau Merkel's probable successor and someone who will probably become one of the most powerful men in the EU complains he hates to hear English when communicating with tourists its not a problem.

    glad we cleared that up.

    That's the spirit. Nurse these little grievances carefully. The restoration of sovereignty will be well worth any trifling economic inconvenience.

    English is spoken by many other countries beyond the UK.

    For example, English is an official language of the Republic of Ireland.

    In any of those cities (and country), they definitely speak Russian at the more expensive restaurants and hotels. In fact outside the centre of Istanbul Russian is more widely spoken than English. The reason being there is an enormous amount of business and trade with Russians. I have worked in all of the aforementioned places.

    BTW The greatest number of tourists in Turkey are the Germans.

    Yet another Brexiter post thinking that the British Empire still exists.
    Brexiteers remind me of religious fanatics, only faith, no facts.
