On one of the busiest routes on the Brecon Beacons a bilingual sign has the English side painted out. Is it info about safety or tourism? Only Welsh speakers are allowed to know. The Welsh tourism agency spends hundreds of thousands every year trying to persuade people to visit Wales. Which is largely wasted if visitors don’t feel welcome when they get there and return home with examples like this. Signs written in such a way that most passers-by can understand isn’t cultural subserviance. Its good manners. And good tourism too.
