I’m not sure what people expected, TBH. Fife has few Gaelic links, it does however have a vibrant but largely-ignored working class Scots-speaking tradition.
As the Gaelic Language Plan is reaching Scots-speaking areas it beginning to look hopelessly flawed and injust. This is fuelling anti-Gaelic resentment, and providing ammunition for the reactionary Brits, which is bad for everybody. The SNP response of ‘just call them bigots’ is disappointing, to say the least.
