There is an excellent article on Bella Caledonia by Wilson McLeod examining the failure of the SNP-led Scottish Government to provide bilingual English and Scottish language questions in the upcoming referendum on Scottish independence. It underlies the mixed fortunes of Scottish (Scottish Gaelic) in our fellow Gaelic nation. On one hand there is considerable opposition to Scottish-speaking communities and citizens from some supremacist anglophone Scots (particularly in the English language media) while on the other hand Scottish medium education is thriving with most schools oversubscribed for pupil placements.
Of late the SNP has pulled back somewhat in their public commitment to the indigenous Scottish language, noticeably on their party website and in much of their literature. A surrender to anglophone intolerance within the party or an attempt to curry favour with the anti-Gaelic element in the national news media in the run up to the national poll?
