Not only should the compulsory Welsh language lessons in schools be scrapped, but Welsh language road signs should also be abolished because they lead to confusion for drivers. Here is a perfect example; Usk is the English language place name and the Welsh language name for the same picturesque town is Brybuga. Make up your own mind which you would prefer to use.
When children are leaving school without a grasp of basic Maths and English language, the time spent teaching Welsh should be re-allocated to these subjects as a priority. Pupils should only be allowed to take Welsh language lessons when they are proficient in both Maths and English. It is a fact that 80 percent of people in Wales do NOT speak the Language, yet is is foist on us by the 20 per cent minority Welsh language mafia.
All official documents must be delivered in English and Welsh whether we want it or not, and this generates enough waste paper to destroy a small rain forest. Isn't it time for sanity to prevail and make the official language of Wales ENGLISH? I am not against those who wish to use the language doing so, but NOT for the majority to shoulder the burden.
For those who wonder, I live in Gwent, formally (before 1973 reorganisation) MONMOUTHSHIRE and I am proud to live in part of the country that for many years was neither considered to be in England or Wales. I fondly remember the signs as you crossed the border that read "WELCOME to Wales AND MONMOUTHSHIRE".
With the advent of the Welsh Assembly in Cardiff, I wish to proclaim "FREEDOM FOR MONMOUTHSHIRE" (all of it; including the parts annexed to what is now Caerphilly County Borough area). I am sure we have our own home grown idiots in this area who would be less of an embarrassment than Rhodri Morgan.
