More abuses of the English language
It seems that the proposal to close Mayals School in Swansea and open a Welsh medium school on the site instead has moved on from "ethnic cleansing" to become "social terrorism". As I said yesterday, regardless of the case for or against this proposal, please get some perspective and stop devaluing the English language in this way. If this is "terrorism" then how do we then describe the act that led to the outrage and tragedy in Beslan or that in New York three years ago?
