Brown snubs the Welsh?

It was always interesting I thought that the Downing Street website decided to have an Arabic version, but it appears now they have launched a French version too.

Now, considering that Mandarin is the most spoken language in the world, followed closely by Spanish (or English depending on who's figures you use), why go for a language that isn't even considered in the top ten most widely used language according to the Summer Institute for Linguistics?

OK, so you might say that we have a lot of French speaking people in the country, or that it is our neighbour, but what about Welsh? Gordon tells us so often about his love for Britain, yet he can;t even be bothered to speak to taff in their mother tongue.
