"The actual total budget for “Gaelic road signs” is not £26m but £2m, and is actually just the budget for roadsigns generally – Gaelic names will only be added when signs are due to be replaced anyway, making the real cost effectively zero. "

According to the article, there are many unionists who are supportive of Gaelic.

It makes it clear that unionist politicians have supported Gaelic.

"Bilingual roadsigns weren’t instigated by the SNP as part of its dastardly obsession with inculcating seperatism, but by the first Labour/Lib Dem administration in 2003. The Gaelic Language (Scotland) Act, which set out “the status of the Gaelic language as an official language of Scotland commanding equal respect to the English language”, was passed by the second Labour/Lib Dem government in 2005, and subsequently enthusiastically backed by many of Carlaw’s Tory colleagues"

Its also clearly the case that there are Gaels who voted for unionism and are members of unionist parties.

Gaelic is just like English in being a language shared by people who disagree with each other.
