Another reason for Scottish Independance

International Herald Tribune Article on Scottish Language

Really interesting article

Currently spoken by fewer than 2 percent in Scotland, Gaelic is enjoying a revival here that has blossomed since the country held elections in 1999 to create a Scottish Parliament for the first time in almost 300 years.

Thats really interesting that its since they got their own parliament that the language is been revived so it must be the start of a Scottish Political and Social Identity

In research carried out by the agency and the BBC in 2003, 66 percent of 1,020 people questioned saw Gaelic as an important part of Scottish life that needs to be promoted. Although 87 percent were not Gaelic speakers, nearly 90 percent were in favor of children learning Gaelic in schools.

if thats not demand then what is???
