More food for the trolls and bigots. Well done South Wales Argus. You know this gets them going. Can't help that you tacitly are agreeing with them by republishing this article at this time. Welsh speakers and indeed children attending Welsh medium schools are classed as a minority and so come under anti-discrimination laws and are also covered by the UN convention on human rights.

Aren't our school children being discriminated against by being compulsorily forced to learn a minority language, which will not benefit 99.9% of them one iota in the wider world. I'm not a troll or a bigot and certainly not a zealot or a Welsh language fascist. I am Welsh and proud to be so. Human rights is a two way street not just the privilege of the so called minorities.
