TWO tremendous letters on the 5th from Dr Mike Thomas and A Bond regarding the Welsh language. A Bond brings breath of suggested accuracy to the critics. Dr Mike Thomas reflects a sense of passion that I support, and is so badly lacking in so many ways in society these days.

To my total chagrin I do not speak Welsh – just do not have the ability to learn grammar for any other tongue. Nevertheless, I will defend the protection of this, an endemic British language. When it comes to cost, consider the cost incurred in translating and printing documents in languages that are not native to these isles.
