APC the Leader of the resistance?

It looks like author Angus Peter Campbell/Aonghas P(h)àdraig Caimbeul has emerged as the leader of the anti-establishment movement in the Gaelic world. Recently he spoke out about the unelected members of Bòrd na Gàidhlig who speak on the behalf of the Gaelic community. He was scathing about them. Before that he was writing in his WHFP column about the lack of support for Gaelic literature. Now his publicity for an appearance at a book festival states.
'Angus Peter enjoys robust discussion and is disappointed that Gaelic-speaking MPs grunt at the trough along with the other Orwellian piglets.'

Oidhche mhath a chàirdean

Forargyll mygaleic thread comes back to life.

One for serious study if you have an interest in whether Bòrd na Gàidhlig gave value for money with the £250,000 site and attendant publicity. The forargyll thread has been around for a while but has recently come back to life, it's a long read but illuminating.
