Maybe now they can go back to wrecking and claim it's an ancient Cornish tradition protected by law.

English People (emmets) just don't understand, try these sentiments in Galicia or Brittany and see if you get out alive

All you need now is a union with Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Basque Spain, and Brittany and you can have a true Celtic nation

This is why humanity is doomed. We should be coming together, not going back to neolithic tribal groupings.

Its pretty interesting to me just how different Manx Gaelic and Cornish are from each other. They're both Celtic languages, but the overlap is so little that the 2 languages are completely different.
I like Celtic languages, and do think they should be taught. However, they don't help in the modern "globalised" world.

I very much respect local customs and cultures. However why is there a push to REVIVE a language (language being a medium to communicate to others with) that is hardly spoken now and dwindling? Other than to further segregate? How is it useful when no one else will use it?

Quite. Welsh is fine, as a large preportion of Welsh People I know speak it fluently and have customers that only speak welsh (they were never raised to speak English). As for Scottish and Irish, I don't think many people speak it (in proportion to the population).

Well colour me uninformed, I didn't even realise there were Scottish or Irish languages, only accents (although in my recent trip to Glasgow I was rather shocked to find people actually write with a Scottish accent. I legitimately saw someone write "Ah cannae do that.")

It's like not the ecosystem where a species needs to be revived because it plays a vital role. If a language is dieing, let it. Remember it. Celebrate it if you want. But let's not try and revive it just for heritage sake. If a language dies out, there's usually a progressive and logical reason for that, and it shouldn't be categorised as explicitly 'bad'.

It gets it some attention if nothing else, failing that, give something for historians to research in the future
