Welsh alone.

Want to feel like a foreigner in your own country - speak Welsh and see the reaction. This is what happens under British Nationalism, you can't speak your own language in your own country.

On a happier note, this S4C programme with London-raised Welshman Ifor ap Glyn is a lot of fun and shows that among the ignorant there are also loads of people in Wales who understand more Welsh than they realise.

Actually, the programme shows that you *can* speak Welsh in your own country, but that most of us (Welsh speakers) haven't got the balls/patience to do so.

Nobody is forcing us to use English. We choose to do so because it's more convenient than "making a fuss".
