Welsh education has always been held in high regard in the English system - partly because in 'the old days' so many of our best teachers were Welsh, which in turn came from a tradition of solid education for working class kids. Until the 70s that couldn't be said of England.

Is it anything to do with Wales having such good comprehensive schools?

Non-English medium schools are a hot button with Kippers. Tories, DUP'ers etc. It's all about those weird, fringey celtic types stealing money from real people instead of just catching themselves on and spoking proper england like what we do.

And then, while we're about it, how much are these extra words on the road signs costing? And these bilingual/trilingual government documents?

There'll be a lot of noise about cost, and added value, but it's in the aim of producing a monoculture.

And ultimately about fear of the unknown. And again control.

See Fargle getting scared when he hears non-English voices in one of the biggest tourist destination cities in the world.

You *know* he's the type who reckons they're all talking about him, too, as his self-importance and paranoia duel to the death in his tiny mind.

I hope he finds it genuinely stressful and upsetting in a lingering way. Perhaps also that it keeps him up nights.

Class prejudice.
Not unrelated at all. There's a sizeable chunk of a specific English middle-class mindset that's formed entirely from post-colonial neuroses that gives rise to this sort of supremacist thinking. Viz. Why aren't these bloody savages acting in a civilized way like we taught them and their ilk?

Exactly. Navvies and miners.
