Suggestion for EU official language policy

Irish opposition parties are trying to stir up the nationalist vote with a proposal to get Irish (ca 0.2M fluent speakers) adopted as an official EU language. I know when I’ve lost an argument, and I hereby renounce everything I have said on this subject in the past. Let’s make every European tongue (including the non-subsidised but infinitely more interesting Irish traveller talk) an official language, but with one important proviso: that the astronomical costs involved should not to be funded by taxation but by public subscription. Put yer money where yer mouth is, cheapskates.
