    And the trouble with this is that it does permeate through to the conscience of the populace. I've had Welsh people apologize to me for them speaking their own language in front of me. In no other country in the world has this happened to me. It's a consequence of the cultural imperialism suffered by Wales. IIRC you'll find posters on here who believe the Welsh language should die. It's been a well used stick to beat with hasn't It?

    That’s just down the road from me.

    To be fair to him, though I’m not sure why we should, I believe he’s apologized somewhat and been made to see the error of his joke.

    I particularly liked one comment which published a picture of a sign saying “Loughborough” and said

    “Any language looks strange when viewed through the prism of another language. As a Welsh speaker, this sign looks to me like a cat’s walked over the keyboard”.

    Similar thing happened with that Jeremy Vine recently. I'm glad they apologise and hopefully making jokes about the Welsh language will soon be confined the the dustbin of history.

    I've seen videos of that woman talking, in Welsh, about how her love for the Super Furries led her to learn the language and her recent visit to Wales. She's quite inspirational whenever I think learning Welsh is too hard sat here in the most Welsh speaking bit of Cardiff hearing the language around me every day!
