German (most common language in Europe), French (Secondary language in UN after English), Spanish (Most used language in the Americas), Mandarin (only for year 7 onwards)
Welsh, Cornish and Breton are Brythonic
Scottish Gaelic (usually pronounced as if saying 'gallik'), Irish and Manx are Goidelic
When you get to Irish you then get the official language, and then the dialects ... and getting someone from The Pale and from the Aran Islands to talk to each other leaves them arguing (usually over a pint or two) about the best way to say good afternoon! Then again, you can get the same between North and South Wales.
Imagine for a moment we gave all money to local government. One decides that roads are terrible so builds a whacking great motorway to the authority boarder. You neighbouring authority has done no such thing, so the road ends up going nowhere...
It is a very extreme and silly case, but when you get down to that level of micro management of a country then there is no country.
Yes, Yes we can...in fact I demand that we do! haha
For anyone interested in listening to the differences between the Celtic languages, there are some tv channels which you can get online.
S4C for Welsh
BBC Alba for Scottish
TG4 for Irish
There is a youtube channel done by Adrian Cain for Manx
France 3 Ouest is done in Brittany for Breton.
As for Cornish, no clue!

ps its a bit tounge in cheek :)
im do think that the 2.5 party system we have dosent encourage any more actual debate than 7 year olds who both think they are right and dont understand compramise so just shout at each other till one gives up
thats why you retain a cut down central govenment to oversee motorways as an example but leave councils to do local roads
We should move to an anarcho-communist system. Direct democracy, no focus on 'ownership'. Focus on self-fulfilment of need rather than a misguided sense of want...
Sorry to resurect this thread but found this on youtube which makes me think i'll stay the east side of the River next time I visit the folks ;)
