I am surprised by the bully-boy tactics employed against Dafydd Glyn Jones's paper ("Welsh snub 'sneering paper', THES , June 29). There is nothing "anti-English" or sneering about what Glyn Jones is trying to discuss.
Any attempt to stick up for the Welsh language is interpreted as racist. In other European countries, internal difference is seen as positive, linguistic diversity is encouraged and minority languages are protected.
Glyn Jones's proposals are genuinely socialist ones. Perhaps that is why the Labour Party is so against them.
