Calum MacNeill tells the truth about our Scottish language. Your post is ambiguous. It lacks clarity. Be precise!

Nan robh dual-chainnt cumanta aig a Bheurla Ghallda leithid mar a tha ann aig cananan eile, sgrìobhinnsa e na b'fhasa ach chan eil dad ann ach tradiseantan ionadail an diugh.
If Scots had a standardized written form like other languages, it would be easier for people to write in. But it only has local traditions as a guidance for its orthography today.

It's no accident that the first regular Scottish European cultural affairs programme, Eòrpa, was created by Gaels. It's also no surprise that Gaels broadcast all the Scottish football games no other broadcaster will show.
It's no accident that most of BBC Alba seems to be in English these days.

(Two can play at George Orwell quotes)
"In this country I don’t think it is enough realized—I myself had no idea of it until a few years ago—that Scotland has a case against England."
