Eddie Butler takes aim at people who moan about Welsh being on road signs
Eddie Butler has taken aim at people who moan about the Welsh language being on road signs.
The sports commentator and former Wales international rugby player said people who complain about bilingual road signs have “got to put up with it”.
Butler, who supports Welsh independence, argued about the need to expand Welsh medium education, and said language is “still very much part of our way of life whether you speak it or not”.
In an interview with WalesOnline he said: “But all the attempts to suppress the Welsh language and the Welsh culture have failed. The language is still very much part of our way of life whether you speak it or not.
“It should be as natural to hear Welsh in Wales as it is to hear Spanish in Spain. People complain about the road signs, but that’s too bad, you have got to put up with it.
“We are all in this together, however Welsh speaking you are. But in terms of the future of the Welsh language, education is the absolute key, no question.
“You introduce Welsh into the schools system and within two generations everybody will be speaking Welsh who is educated in Wales.”
