A group of asylum seekers and refugees in Scotland are to be schooled in Glaswegian "patter", enabling them to work in local branches of the Citizens Advice Bureau.I presume that the £100,000 is the cost of the whole project and not just the language lessons. Perhaps it includes provision of the uniform:
But training on how to understand the local dialect will come before they are sent out to face the public.
A total of 13 people will take part in the £100,000 project.
The Citizens Advice Bureau tells us that:
... up to 80% of the refugees we see as clients (sic) are professionals such as doctors, teachers, accountants and bankers.Would it not be better to teach terms like "entrepreneur", "businessman" and "self-responsibility" instead of:
"Soshal (Department of Work and Pensions)"The problem is that our rulers prefer asylum seekers to be wards of the state rather than productive workers.
"Giro (benefit payment)"
Besides, I have a horrible feeling that the CAB would tell our visitors that the Glaswegian for "entrepreneur" is "chancer".
