Byddwch barod i wylltio
Mae Matthew Parris yn ddyn anhapus iawn.
"Oh, I know. Another grumpy Englishman grumbling about bilingualism. And I do realise the use of a language can be out of courtesy and respect, not mere practicality. But in my enforced wait at Newport I never heard a single passenger speak Welsh. Ears rang with a constant stream of announcements repeated in two languages, taking twice as long to convey. There were twice as many notices stuck on walls and steel posts: these too had to be in both languages – the clutter of signage confusing the eye. Network Rail was doubling the time, space, noise and visual nuisance of public announcements, and hampering access to information, for whose benefit? The largest group of non-English-speakers using Newport station are probably Poles."
Diolch i Andy yn Melbourne am dynnu fy sylw at hwn. Ond dyw'r e-fyd yn fach?
