    It does not appear Ms. Blears has a full grasp of the language either.

    "Hazel Blears, a Communities Secretary under Labour, was involved in the party’s

    She said the figures should be treated with caution. ‘They may be
    first-generation immigrants and their parents may not speak English, but they
    [the children] might do. "
