ALL ALONG THE ANGLOSPHERE:

South Sudan adopts the language of Shakespeare (Rosie Goldsmith, 10/08/11,  BBC News)

After decades of Arabisation and Islamisation by the Khartoum government, the predominantly Christian and African south has opted for English as its official language.

At the Ministry of Higher Education, Edward Mokole, told me: "English will make us different and modern. From now on all our laws, textbooks and official documents have to be written in that language. Schools, the police, retail and the media must all operate in English."

What do you expect when W is the Father of their nation?
