Just Saying

Look I'm no expert but why do Welsh language media and bloggers, including the BBC and Golwg, use the name Gaddafi, surely it should be Gadaffi? After all the guy himself spells/spelt his name القذافي and that should be transliterated according to the rules of the Welsh alphabet, not that of its next door neighbour.

Strange thing to get worked up about enough to create a blog post, but, yeah, I agree.

Well I'm not actually seething with rage ......... although I do think it's illustrative of a provincial mentality.
