THE issue of cost in the provision of Welsh in official documentation is merely another tediously mendacious pretext.

Its cost is miniscule, particularly when viewed in comparison to the myriad of material impositions placed, without discernible benefit, upon my nation. One can, for all practical purposes, legitimately disregard all such pathetic anglophile attempts at subterfuge. Their actual objection is to any measure of self-determination being afforded to my people. The alien and sourly xenophobic elements within our society having failed to devise any rational counter-argument to our aspiration to autonomy, now find themselves reduced to desperately raising trivial and inconsequential irrelevancies in response to this slight recognition of my nation’s entitlement.
