    I'd be annoyed if I called up a hotel here and they didn't speak English.

    Did he even say anything wrong? A hotel not speaking English in England is pretty poor, and the rap comment seems entirely unrelated.

    Trying to make something out of nothing.

    Flintoff 'may have to apologise.'

    To whom, exactly?

    Would be more interesting to see the quotes in context in GQ.

    He has done nothing wrong.

    It is BARE MINIMUM if you work in a foreign country to speak the ****ing language.

    Having said that, Flintoff doesn't speak English too well either.
    All-Time Test XI:
    Gavaskar, Boycott, Tendulkar, G.Pollock, V.Richards, Sobers, Gilchrist (wk), Warne (c), Waqar/Wasim, Lillee, Ambrose.

    I think blaming rising violence on rap music is rather stupid, but other than that there’s nothing wrong with his statements. The article is obviously trying to stir up controversy where none exists.

    There have probably just been one or two incidents where hotel receptionists have had trouble deciphering his accent. I doubt very much that they couldn't speak English. Storm in teacup stuff anyway, but maybe Flintoff's made more out of it than was really the case.

    May well be a storm in a teacup. But the phrase that will be repeated is "“I have no problems with a multicultural society, I think that is to the benefit of the country. But you have to be careful what levels you take it to." And that on its own could well prove problematic for him.

    Flintoff is an illiterate Idiot,he continues to prove that with his actions and words. Good that they took away England's captaincy from him. He doesn't know what multicultural society means.

    Yes, it would certainly have been better if he hadn't prefaced his remarks with that comment.

    Especially with the BNP predicted to do well in forthcoming elections.
