Members of the English Defence League and other right-wing crackpots are to be tested on their English skills before being able to claim income-related benefits under a new scheme.

Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith said people who are members of organisations such as the EDL and the BNP will be asked what efforts they have made to learn how to speak English properly before being able to “take advantage” of benefits.

Labour supports English tests for far-right nutcakes but says ministers are ignoring the exploitation of low-skilled dim-witted fascists.

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) said some central government funding would be made available to local authorities for English lessons to help EDL members reach Entry Level Two standard – the average language ability of a 9-year-old.

A spokesperson for the DWP explained the reasons for the new stricter rules:

From now on, if thick claimants such as EDL members or BNP supporters don’t speak English well, they will have to attend language courses until they do.

This is a reasonable requirement – it will help them compete with the foreigners who come here to find work and speak English way way better than they do.
