Public money should first be spent on hospitals and schools

I would like someone to explain to me why the nationalist and unionist politicians of this country think it is OK to ask taxpayers to fund their aspirations for redundant languages to be foisted on the vast majority of our citizens.

Irish is not a widely used language in the business world any more than Ulster Scots.

So feel free to use these languages if that’s what you want but please don’t ask us to pay for it! There are hospitals, schools, roads and housing crying out for money for improvements.

To my mind that is much more important than the way a word is pronounced.

Get real, politicians and start listening to what the man in the street wants, a job, a home and pride in this beautiful country.
