What a total fucking cunt
And here's just how big a piece of shit he is:
Saw this yesterday, the front and entitlement on him!
That place is a monstrosity as well
Sadly you'll see many people saying that Welsh is forced on children and holds them back as well as being no value in comment sections etc
Yet the advantages for children learning two languages are very well documented.
Same sort of idiots in Scotland and Ireland, and Cornwall, too, I suspect. One nation to rule them all with one language. Relic of empire. End London Rule.
It dud not affect mi in eni wê!
Hmm, yeah. I never knew anyone who went to a Welsh-medium school or spoke it at home who was deficient in English.
Could always meet him half-way and drop the English from the signs, I guess.
It's a good job that he applies the same no-nonsense approach to clutter on his website:
Trago Mills | The South West's Original Discount Retailer
Otherwise we might think that he was just bigoted.
A Welsh speaking colleague once told me that if there is not a Welsh word for something it is common to add 'io' at the end of the English word. I asked her what the Welsh for radio was and then had to explain I wasn't taking the pissio.
Not got any connection to Wales or Welsh, but I've met a good number of impressive speakers of Spanish as a second language who are bilingual in Welsh and English. Often find that those who attack Welsh-medium education on the basis of it being 'less useful' than French or whatever, in another context aren't especially in favour of learning other languages either.
My family hate Trago Mills, you get dark looks if you even mention it, we're from Newton Abbot, my Auntie lives nearby. They/he swerved loads of planning law at the time it was built.
We went there when I was last visiting, vowed to spend no money, just wanted a look. I'm all for cheap stuff but peddling the shite they were to people is just low.
My Welsh colleagues don't appear to bother even doing that and just use the English word. Although was suprised they just used the English "booking form", kind of assumed there would be a Welsh word for it.
He wanted to put shoplifters in the stocks once. Think he even went as far as building some if memory serves. His rants on the weekly Trago advert in The Cornishman were always worth reading just to see how demented he was that week.
The man is insane. We used to get an advertising pamphlet regularly stuck through our door advertising trago. It always had a small "editorial" section containing his rants. Imagine a cross between farage and someone having a psychotic breakdown let loose without a sub editor. It was hard to even get offended most of the time as it was barely coherent.
Just thrown away all my Iron Maiden albums because of this.
I'll never watch Withnail & I again.
Chairman of your London Barbican Centre is a twat then:
Yes! Is there a doubt?
Rememinds me of the time BBC Granstand went live to Stradey Park where Llanelli were playing Australia. The scoreboard showed “Awstralia”. Steve Rider in the studio says “ no marks for spelling!”. Twat.
this one actually apologised
