Offended by call to scrap Gaelic signs


In response to John and Jackie Paddison’s call to ‘Scrap Gaelic road signs’ (Letters, The Oban Times, November 3), I’m sure they didn’t mean to cause any offence with their suggestion to ‘scrap Gaelic road signs and repair potholes instead’.

Gaelic is obviously not their culture, but it is ours. If you drive through Wales, Cornwall, Ireland etc and hit another pothole, would you expect them to rip off their native name signs and tell them to spend money on their potholes?
