Re: Further

As The Register reported earlier this week, Uber’s lawyer Thomas de la Mare argued that about a third of the app’s 110,000 drivers would fail the £180-a-go English tests because it would be too difficult for them.

Sounds to me like he's claiming foreign non-english drivers are incapable of learning a new language and hence is discriminating against them based on a perceived racial stereotyping of intelligence levels. Not really the sharpest of defence lines.
