I like cars. I also like car programmes, so it follows that I watch Top Gear. However, whilst bored and watching an old epsiode, I followed a link to "Air An Rathad". At first I thought there was a problem with the audio, but it turns out it's from BBC Alba, speaking Scottish Gaelic.
This is paid for by BBC License fees. The channel costs £15m.
Some of YOUR licence fee - providing you pay it, of course - pays for this shite.
And how many people speak Gaelic?
58,652 in 2001. That's just 1.2% of the Scottish Population. Only 1% of the porridge-wogs speak this stupid language - which sounds even more phlegmy than Welsh - but yet apparently the BBC think it's a worthwhile investment.
How the fuck can they justify this? So what if the language was going to die? So fucking what? Langauges survive and languages die for a reason. Not covering the person you're speaking to with huge amounts of flob is a bonus, so I expect Welsh to die out sooner or later. What possible use is this language if it remains anyway?
Fuck off, you phlegmy fucking morlocks, and stop taking MY money (yes, I do begrudgingly pay a licence fee as Mrs. Bristol Dave inists on it) to try in vain to keep your pointless fucking language alive.
