Scotlands gaelic speakers get no help from THEIR parliament

Unlike Eire, where Gaelic is taught to most pupils as part of their mainstream education, Scotland has no such plan and the London dominated Liberal-Labour pact intends to keep it that way.

Gaels will have to struggle on and a crucial part of Scotlands heritage will be denied to us again by folk who think London/Westminster knows best.

I'm ashamed that I speak no Gaelic, and would have loved the chance to learn, but it seems that our Human rights and culture must play second fiddle to a curriculum set to highlight 'Britishness', whatever the hell that is.
