politicians will back anything their own party does but very easily slam it if another party does it....its the way politicians work.

no doubt these same x mps will be on fb or twitter now exclaiming their disbelief in the snp overspending

The idea that Gaelic and independence are linked is an obsession of some unionists and not borne out by the facts. Its kneejerk reaction to a language being indigenously British and different from English. Its also rather foolish of them as many unionists will be antagonized by their contempt for Gaelic.

"Letís start off by losing some more friends. This site has no time for the Gaelic lobby. The obsolete language spoken by just 0.9% of Scotlandís population might be part of the nationís ďcultural heritageĒ, but so were burning witches and replacing Highlanders with sheep and we donít do those any more either"

Both of these events were carried out by English speaking rulers against Gaelic speaking communities.

Well as the site is owned by Americans I agree that they have no time for Gaelic at all, its a
business when said and done and most of the members come from outwith Scotland even
though their 'roots' may be Scottish !

I know many Americans who have a lot of time for Gaelic and invest money in Scotland because of it. Michael Newton for instance.
