    He is posting in Ulster Scots. It's just that everyone who can speak English has an in-built Ulster Scots translator, it seems.

    So called "Ulster Scots" is not a language. It is not even a dialect - it’s really just a gobbledygook accent.
    I have to agree.....Coming from North Monaghan /South Armagh, I know the lingo...Words not pronounced properly in English, a mixture of Irish and English got confused and they called it Ulster Scots... My father a North Monaghan Catholic and his friends spoke this lingo fluently....For example Tea was always Tae..

    Get it?
    Wake up and read my original post - I said that that legislation would be tabled in the House of Commons. You do not appear to understand that is the seat of the UK parliament.

    Ulster has 9 counties and the part which is called NI comprises 6 of these 9 counties - therefore, NI can never be 'Ulster' as some mistakenly refer to it.

    Scots itself is not a language so where does that leave so called Ulster Scots. Both are just badly spoken variations of mainstream English .

    You are right, but there is not much Gaelic to it.
