An intense organised effort is pathetic, the preservation of the language needs to be legislated for by means of a gradual and universal reintroduction of it which is strictly enforced. In Quebec, French is by law the official language of the government and the courts and it is the normal and habitual language of the workplace, instruction, communications, commerce and business. I remember a huge row recently because a Canadian supermarket chain called Metro refused to frenchify its name in Quebec to Métro and change its signs and logo accordingly - that's how seriously the Quebecois take it. Unfortunately, with so many of our deputies coming from such diverse places as Scotland, Wales, London, Liverpool and Newcastle, there will be little interest in legislating for the protection of the island's language and culture. Even the National Trust of Guernsey has modelled itself on and named itself after a British cultural institution which has nothing to do with Guernsey.
