Calls for a new Welsh Language Act

Plaid Cymru leader Ieuan Wyn Jones has called for a new Welsh Language Act at a rally organised by the Welsh language pressure group, Cymdeithas yr Iaith (Welsh Language Society).

How come the same media attention isn't given to BSL?

The welsh language is the oldest living language in europe, BSL has only JUST (2003), been recognised, and still has nop force in law. More people care about preserving Welsh than campaigning for BSL in Wales, it's as simple as that. Up until 1960s there was no such thing as BSL used in deaf Wales, like Cornwall predominantly finger-spelling was used..

MM, don't you think we know that? Methinks you miss the point, as usual.

Methinks A was asking why, aside from in Wales, how come BSL isn't given as much prominence on a *national* level? It was a rhetorical question, ie one that isn't really meant to be answered!

So why ask it :) BSL ISN'T legalised 'language' just a recognised one. Let's not play semantics (Word games even !).
