English to become an official language?

NZ First MP Clayton Mitchell has put a members bill in to make English an official language. 

In Mitchell’s own words:

“It’s common sense to officially recognise the language that the vast majority of New Zealanders use on a daily basis,” he said.

Yeah… Nah.

English is already an official language, even if it isn’t recognised by the law.

Plenty of better things for government to focus on.
