he BBC is at the forefront, presenting positive images of ethnic diversity by increasing their proportion, especially on programmes directed at the young and impressionable viewer. Thus creating cohorts of liberal luvvies to continue the good work!

 

:lol: :lol:

 

Do you actually beleive that Obs :?:

Julia is a legend......

 

I hope all of you councillors that look in on this little forum take note; it is not racist to expect immigrants to adapt to our culture. WBC should not be paying thousands of pounds in translation fees and thousands of pounds giving benefits to foreigners who do not deserve it....

 

Here here, I have no problem with Tourist information (and anything touristy) having several languages, and maybe hospitals, and police stations (Fair justice and all that). Theory driving tests, voting information, etc, should be in English and Welsh only. If I moved to another country one of my priorities would be to learn the main language.

Rhyl and Press your hat in are hardly what you call North Wales. Apart from Abersoch, Welsh is spoken by all the natives and is a school language on the Lleyn Peninsula and around Caernarfon as well.

Which is exactly why many of the real locals do, and always will, speak Welsh in their presence Peter.

 

Understandable in a way as the the influx of the English 'richies' has priced the local youngster's out of buying homes and living there but then again what am I saying as it has also built the area up and increased the spending in the 'locals' shops and provided a lot of local work for may 'Welshies' :wink:

Going back probably about 20 years a new family moved into the road where I grew up. They were English but had lived on Anglesey and had a small business.

 

They upped sticks. left it all behind and moved back here as it had got so bad. I can't remember the exact details but I'm sure they had a lot of damage done to their business and cars and they had either had their house set on fire or were threatened with it. :?

No problem with them speaking Welsh if they are paying for the lessons, as someone who is English why should I pay :?:

 

I often think that about some of the things we fund in Europe Kije...... what is the difference? Surely in your eyes you should see it as keeping a fellow European countries' language alive?

 

Everything for the greater good of the Euro state and all that :wink:
