The call for bilingual train announcements to be made in English first has caused some controversy. Not surprising, as controversy between the Red and the Green was its intention, a rather pathetic attempt by anti Welsh Labour to rub Plaid up the wrong way before the coalition has even taken root.
Good try but no cigar, as they say in the USA.
It may be because I am very hard of hearing, but I see no value in station announcements in any language. They are just part of the cacophony, an addition to background noise and of little practical value. The basic information is on the printed timetables, updates are available on screens, there is no need for tinny announcements over loudspeakers.
My compromise suggestion is to shut the buggers up in both languages.
