Bilingual? I'm not even monolingual

From the comment section of an article that criticises the French education system for its cuts on teacher numbers whilst promoting the learning of English:
Sep 04 08, 11:24am (21 minutes ago)
"Whatever about the cutbacks, the dominance of English in business and science throughout Europe means that teh French are absolutely correct to increase access to english language for it's younger generation.
French is a beautiful language and is no fear of becoming defunct. However, failure to learn good english will be a serious business disadvatage in the furture.
In short, learn English or you will be left behind "[sic]

Surely someone's idea of irony.
