It seems that my last column has caused a bit of stir amongst the Welsh people – my blog has been overloaded with views etc. It seems that apparently that Welsh Nationalist argument has gone off the rails as it were – sad but true. Education is the cause of it and people feel strongly about it. “Nationalists to instil Welsh terror on our children” seems to be the general cause of complaint. They say that the Welsh language might be the cause of such virulent outrage in the school but when it comes to the school gates it’s all about English on the smart phones, it was ever thus.

There are some thing parents can do. File Freedom of Information requests to the Council on how much this is all costing, translation rights etc. The Council has to have good reason not to react. The Carmarthenshire County Council is trying to make Welsh medium education in all of its schools, this would be a good place to start. Parents have little or no say in what it is trying to do.

It is time you spoke out!

There is so much I have done to explain the Welsh speaking process. I have no objection to the speaking of it but I do object to the cost to the public purse – and this is England, Scotland and Northern Ireland. If the Welsh Government could show that all this money improves the usage of Welsh then fair enough – but it can’t. Its money is down a greedy drain. The last Census proves it, and if you take it on a more accurate basis, English shines through in a blindingly obvious way.

The majority of parents want their children to speak English, a common language for the rest of the world. Have Welsh as a second language but what on earth the children are going to with it heaven knows, they could go on televisions S4C I suppose – although very few actually watch it. The viewing figures go down and down, the same with the Welsh speaking radio.

Why can’t the Welsh Government see the light? Why can’t it do something about the cost of it all? There’s a new advert on now – speak Welsh and the world will be yours. Well, it won’t but that’s propaganda for you.

What world, instead of Patagonia that is.

There needs to some kind of resolution to this, apart from anything as I said in last week’s column, the internet is the biggest threat of all. Time will conclude all this argument and it doesn’t look good for the Welsh language. It will go on, but for how much longer who knows.

  1. For years, in the post-devolution period, the Welsh speaking Nats have used the Welsh Labour as the principal tool to establish the Welsh language dominance.

    With the mainstream media complicit and silent, there is no scrutiny of Welsh Governance what so ever and the bastards feel invincible, so no more need for secrecy hence the two bold moves of recent:



    Time for an organised opposition, to the Bizzaro World of Wales where Lunacy is Rationality and vice versa!

    PS – No apologies for the ‘niceties’ expressed above – Carwyn Jones and his Welsh Language Mafia are destroying Wales and need to be made accountable.

    • Many do and will continue to go to England until Wales embraces progress, wipes the chip off its shoulder and enters the 20th century (21st is too much to ask) Wales’ finest always head east….I wonder why?

      • I lived in England for 30 years. I came back because the property was cheap and I began writing. Your comment is accurate, although I enjoy living in Wales. The people are more benevolent.

  2. At last somebody has the guts to speak the truth about this cult of a language, expect more abuse than a Labour MP who doesn’t agree with Corbyn

    Keep up the good work and don’t fear the keybourd warriors as its usually the same few fanatics with OCD

  3. Well said old chap, what parent in their right mind would want their offspring educated in a near dead lingo unless it was to give them an unfair fututre advantage in a well paid cushy puplic sector job or keep them seperated from the rough kids and ethnic minorities living on the local council estate??

    Some of these self appointed freedom fighters calling you a racist and a bigot for speaking out are exempted from racism and bigotry on the grounds that they are living everyday as prisoner of English retirees in seaside bungalows. One particular venomous blogger is working on proving how they are bleeding Wales dry and its all part of a wider colonist conspiricy!

    There’s no greater crime in Wales than to be declared “anti Welsh” and any murmur that is expressed against Cymraeg coercion will see you wear that tag and be fully deserving of vitriol and abuse that follows. Do not expect the current crop of politicians to speak up they are nothing more than a bunch of tailors dummies, part of the blame is the shape shifting Plaid Cymru, its softened its nationalism and called itself “progressive” to appear cuddly and nice.

    The parameters are blurred Labour and Plaid appear similar but under the surface there will be Labour politicians who don’t stop caring at a line on a map in the Marches and Plaid Cymru will still have the toxic seperatists who regard the English people and language as dirty/mongrel.
