If only.....

From Hansard,
Jonathan Edwards: To ask the Deputy Prime Minister what assessment he made of the merits of making the content of the Your Freedom website available in languages other than English.

The Deputy Prime Minister: The goal of Your Freedom is to allow as many people as possible to contribute their ideas and comments in a cost-effective way. An assessment was made of translating the content into other languages but all options considered were felt to be disproportionately expensive.
Oh how I wish Clegg had just said "We didn't do it in Welsh for the same reason that the majority of your own website isn't in Welsh."

Would never happen though.
