Lewis man refuses to fill in census unless in Welsh

It's silly season again. An Englishman residing on the Isle of Lewis is refusing to fill in the 2011 Scottish census form unless it is presented in Welsh. The full story is at www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-14502212 and www.mirror.co.uk/news/top-stories/2011/08/13/englishman-in-scotland-refuses-census-unless-it-s-in-welsh-115875-23340575/

He'll go to prison if he has to, apparently. Bon voyage! :)

(PS: I note his comments to the media were in English)

15 minutes of fame! If he's jailed in Scotland he should be made to take compulsory Gaelic classes.
