LET’S be fair, what’s the point of hav­ing the signs in Welsh? JoSoap IT’S part of our cul­ture, whether you speak it or not. See­ing Welsh signs may be the only chance that non-Welsh speak­ers get to ex­pe­ri­ence the lan­guage. Let’s be fair it’s English that’s back­wards any­ways. Red wine is gwin coch in Welsh, vin rouge in French, vino rosso in Ital­ian, vino tinto in Span­ish – noun first, ad­jec­tive sec­ond. English is there­fore back­wards. Ban English signs, learn Welsh. OesGafrEto THE point of hav­ing Welsh road signs is just to ut­terly con­fuse the English. Tourists from abroad seem to be able to find their way around. Just ar­ro­gant English seem to have trou­ble nav­i­gat­ing. Woofjus­tice RE­GARD­LESS of the ar­gu­ments for and against, pub­li­cis­ing such a view was in­cred­i­bly stupid. trevjohn­son can do about it. To­gether, we can tackle cli­mate change.
