Vaughan Roderick's thoughts on the language LCO
"I don't want to go on and on about the language LCO but one little thing worries me. The government in the bay is arguing that, as a matter of principle, the Assembly is the appropriate body for drafting language measures. But if it's the principle that is important why agree to any limitations at all on this right? As a matter of principle shouldn't the Assembly be able to legislate to enforce chip shops and cinemas to operate bilingually?"
