Cant help but feel that most of the "Ulster Scots" words are just bad english words written as if spoken in a bad accent. If you must call it a language, we should all make more of an effort to make it a respectable one, not the embarassment it currently is.

I dont mean to gurn about it. Im a Protestant from Bangor, Ive played the lambegs for Conlig although I havent been up in a while (I really should get up) anyway, I feel strongly about our scots culture, particularly when you look at the increase in the use of the Irish language and culture in parts of Belfast. Ive seen the USFO a brave few times and have a few US eXperience CD's about the place. I just feel that it is being used as a weapon particularly by certain politicians, against nationalists when more effort could be better spent promoting the language amongst young people particularly, 'm 17 and if i tried saying some of the things on the website I'd be laughed at.
