Councillor Deidrie MacKay made an outspoken attack on Gaelic education at a community council meeting recently in Brora. Her comments were the usual sort of anti-gaelic stuff. What is unusual this time is the strength of the reply from the Bòrd na Gàidhlig chair Art MacCormack (a copy of the text of his reply can be found on this page) Deidre MacKay is really being taken to task and being asked to back her comments up with facts. The Northern Times web pages contain comments attacking MacKay in no uncertain terms and the site's poll gives an indication of which way the debate is going.
Deidrie MacKay seems to have united the Gaelic community in condemnation of her comments, no mean feat Deidrie.
