In an administrative error in Wales, in the UK a Road sign was created and put in place that reads, in the English translation as:
"I am not in the office at the moment. Please send any work to be translated"
Whilst this is funny in my opinion, and the was the result of an automated e-mail Error, in some parts of Wales which are still very Nationalistic
this will be taken very seriously.
As the British Government ruling Wales and Scotland and N.Ireland from London is often described as being stupid, the fact that Welsh is probably the
oldest language in the world will leave many upset that this has happened, and a welsh speaker was not consulted before being put up.
There are many upset too in Wales that the English version is always placed as in the picture above the Welsh wording, and in some parts of the
province the English part is covered over with graffiti. Also sometimes weekend cottages for rich English People are burnt down and such like.
Is it racist for London to impose the priority of English over the traditional and still spoken Welsh language within Wales itself?
Is this just a sign of the legacy of the Colonial attitude of the centre of Power in the UK, in Southern England and mainly London.
Should in light of the Iraq War etc the Welsh people start rebuilding Clawdd Offa or in the English Offa's Dyke?

And in Scotland Hadrian's Wall?
