Would-Be Native Speaker of English

The Danish political party the Radical Lefts have proposed that Denmark should introduce English as an official second language.

Klemens Kappel is less than optimistic about the Radical Lefts' influence on political decision-making in Denmark. He sent me this link (in Danish) which informs us that the right-wing parties won't go for the proposal. But it doesn't matter. Danes already treat English as an official second language, at least in the philosophy world.

NB: For the record: the Radical Lefts are neither very radical nor very much to the left, unfortunately.
