Sit ,--Penelope Maslin deserves to be deported from Wales in

a coracle for her flippant verdict on the Welsh, their history and their language.

There is something to be said, however, for making it solitary confinement at Caernarvon in a deep dungeon piled up with Welsh textbooks, and a seleotion of the Welsh classics for the last thirty years of her penitence.

In short, as in. the case of all who presume to

give advice, whether it be on the removal of corns, the baking of a cake, or the preservation of a mother tongue, she needs to understand what she is talking about. Dattinant quod non intelligent.
