Give us more Doric in­stead of Gaelic

The Press and Journal (Moray) - - AGENDA -

SIR, – Ap­par­ently schools in the north-east of Scot­land are strug­gling to re­cruit Gaelic teach­ers.

This may be a re­flec­tion of the fact that very few peo­ple speak Gaelic in the area. It is, by and large, only spo­ken by folks liv­ing in the west coast is­lands.

Per­haps there should be a drive to pro­mote the Doric lan­guage, which is spo­ken by many

thou­sands in the north-east of Scot­land and re­cruit teach­ers to pro­mote Doric, which is a live and colour­ful lan­guage.

The SNP seems to have an in­ex­pli­ca­ble and il­log­i­cal pas­sion in spreading Gaelic through­out Scot­land, with road signs and po­lice cars re­gard­less of the huge cost in­volved in spreading some­thing that is not un­der­stood by the vast ma­jor­ity of the Scot­tish peo­ple.
