    • 2014, Ellie Mae O'Hagen, The Guardian, 23 Jul 2014:
      The Welsh language is not a backwards, insignificant thing; it is a fundamental part of Britain’s collective history. I find it absurd that so few English people realise it is still spoken in families and communities across Wales, as part of a Brittonic culture which has survived through the ages.
