Broon having trouble with basic English words

My understanding of the word 'volunteer' is that he or she is one who does something willingly and without coercion. The Would Be Lord Protector seems to think otherwise:

Migrants should volunteer - Brown

"Immigrants should carry out community work before being granted UK citizenship, Gordon Brown will say....The chancellor will tell his audience in London that obliging migrants to carry out community work would help introduce them to the people they will be living alongside".

Now this could just be sloppy subbing by the BBC, but doing unpaid work ahead of achieving a change in legal status sounds an awful lot like pursuing manumission to me, and just how many high net worth individuals are likely to be toiling away in soup kitchens before they can get their hands on UK nationality, I wonder? I look forward to Broon doing so if Caledonia breaks away though.

What if they speak little English?

Besides, there is a wide-spread myth that there is a huge shortage of volunteers. This myth is peddled i.a. by supporters of "tough" (never explained) community sentences.
