I am a Norman from the Continent. I realise here (if the comments reflect really the peoples' mind) that Guernsey is culturally (and mentally) dying from the very same disease that made Normandy become a flavourless colony of France : pragmatism, materialism, conformism, lack of fighting spirit. Guernsey people could not or did not want to struggle against the English cultural domination, and became simply an English colony, not yet fully flavourless, but right on the way. On the very same way as this planetary utopia with a single language want to make us these grey, standardised, flavourless, "world citizens" (for the seek of business: better market when 10 billion people consume Coca-Cola). Pragmatism can kill a culture. We have seen that on the Continent. Be aware. If you cannot rescue your language (which existed nearly 500 years before modern French and English which are both "patois" of the Norman language), at least, try (if it is not too mentaly exhausting) to rescue the very last remains of specificities you have, unless your dream is to ressemble London people (or Paris if you prefer: not better).
