  1. Happen to live in Wales, a devolved region of the UK but in charge of the education system amongst some other areas of governance.

    Wales has an ancient tribal language which is fluently used by some 10% of the Welsh population (3 Million) + further 10% with some language ability.

    The Welsh-speaking minority has taken charge of the devolved Government and the Media (BBC Cymru Wales & ITV Cymru Wales) and is using education as a Social Engineering tool to create 1 Million Welsh speakers – https://gov.wales/newsroom/welshlanguage/2016/160801cymraeg/?lang=en.

    Education has been damaged and standards are appalling (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-38208738). Any attempt to question the wisdom of imposing a tribal language that most people of Wales have no interest is treated with absolute contempt and censored.

    With no scrutiny, the Welsh Government is getting away with the proverbial murder but with the real victims, our children who are ending up being illiterate and innumerate in two languages.

    Any advice on how to break the censorship will be welcome.
