    Hmph! My bill might as well be in Welsh, or Mongolian for that matter for all the bloody sense I can make out of it.

    The point is, of course, that in Wales, Hain meets little or no opposition from the local unionists in his promotion of the Welsh language.

    That is due to the fact that they’ve updated their thinking on the language, identity and Britishness.

    They are a party of ‘values’

    And when thay sat down and thought about it, they worked out that these values do not include the denigration of authoctonal minority languages.

    And they thereby unhitched themselves from a wagon that is going over a cliff.

    Unlike some others I could mention.

    “…no opposition from the local unionists in his promotion of the Welsh language”.

    Dpn’t a large number of them speak welsh anyway?
