    It's typical arrogance to assume that they don't need it to be corrected.
    I see this crap all the time.
    A welsh person could correct their nonsense in a matter of minutes.

    Why call it a 'culture' bus?

    Is it part of the culture if you have to make a statement about it, telling people to do it?
