Union call to scrap Gaelic signs

Unread post by akerbeltz » Wed Jul 01, 2009 6:33 pm

Duh...
A union has urged Highland Council to end "politically correct" initiatives such as bilingual Gaelic signage rather than cutting jobs...

Aonad ciùird leam-leat; ceart gu leòr gus taic a thoirt gu cànain eile ge-tà:

'Issues and barriers faced by migrant workers
There are many different issues affecting migrant workers and many barriers to
getting help. These are just some.
Language: Language is a key issue as it impacts on so many other factors.
Language difficulties in turn lead to isolation which is itself a barrier to obtaining help
and support.
Apart from tr*nsl*t*ng literature and having access to appropriate tr*nsl*t**n services
one of the best ways to empower migrant workers is to help them onto an ESOL
(English as a Second Language) course.'

Bha mi a' sealladh air a' phios BhBC agus tha dealbh ann, dealbh dhe shanas dà-chànanach. Fon dealbh tha rudeigin mu dheidhinn sanasan dà-chànanach "in the Highlands". Ach càit' a bheil an A866? 'S ann ann an Leòdhas a tha e. Chan eil Leòdhas na phàirt dhen Ghàidhealtachd (mar Comhairle).

Bidh mi a' sgrìobhadh ri Dischord mu seo. Tha iad nan wankers. Cia meud obraichean a chaillear gun togail sanasan dà-chànanach?

'Tha Cathraiche Bhòrd na Gàidhlig, Art MacCarmaig, a' sgrìobhadh gu meur na Gàidhealtachd dhen aonadh UNISON, a togail cheistean mun t-seasamh aca air soidhnichean dà chànanach sa sgìre.'

BBC Alba - Naidheachd

"Mì-laghail" cuir às do shoidhnichean dà-chànanach

Tha na soidhnichean air uiread de chonnspaid adhbharachadh
Tha eòlaichean lagha air innse gum biodh e mì-laghail do Chomhairle na Gàidhealtachd cuir às don phoileasaidh aca air soidhnichean dà-chànanach gun chead bho Bhòrd na Gàidhlig.

chan urrainn dhut comas a dhèanamh an sin. tha iad a' bruidhinn air daoine aig nach a' bheurla agus 's e suidheachadh gu tùr eadar-dhealaichte a th' ann. chan eil iad a' cur taic ri cànain eile, ach ri luchd-labhairt chànan eile.

Oh yes he can, Nowt. The Highland Council area is where a substantial number of migrant workers from na h-Eileanan Siar end up. Why should they be tret in an inferior way to migrant workers from other parts of the EU - or even the world?

Nach èibhinn gu bheilear a' cleachdadh an Cuimrise agus na Basgaise 's fiù na Gaeilge mar inneal integration sna dùthchannan sin...
