Cast mi je da me je Baronesa Coussines konsultirala po ‘pitanju jezika’ u toku priprema za parlamentarnu debatu o promjenama u proceduri popisa stanovnistva 2021. Thomas i ja lobiramo godinama u nasim javnim izlaganjima i publikacijama da pitanje: ‘Koji je vas glavni jezik?’ treba da se promijeni u:
‘Koji su vasi glavni jezici?’. Vrlo mala razlika koja ce otvoriti vrata za zvanicno priznavanje i registriranje plurilingualizma u Velikoj Britaniji! Veliki korak za sve etnicke manjine i manjinske jezike. Danas je Baronesa Coussines stavila nas prijedlog na razmatranje u Kuci Lordova i trazila je urgentnu intervenciju vlade da implementira ovu promjenu. Veliko je ushicenje vidjeti da nas naucni rad tako direktno utjece na drustvene promjene! Nadamo se!
