Rob Gibson MSP la John O’Groat Jounal:

...Noticeably the Courier/Groat online poll last week showed a majority in favour of bilingual signs. Yet virulent anti-Gaelic comments seem inexplicable. So folk memory still rules?

Well, can't we find it in our hearts to enjoy a glorious mixter-maxter of cultures?

Why is no-one suggesting correct Norse/Scots spellings for road signs where they occur?

Bilingual signs in Norse/Scots and Gaelic would be most appropriate.

Or does the legacy of English as the language of progress and education, that was beaten into our forebears, still rule the roost?...
