It's all moving along nicely....

Civil war threatens to rip Plaid Cymru into pieces?
Oh, let's hope not.

And the fight against the Welsh political establishment continues with this fine article from True Wale's Rachel Banner.
The greater "the legislative rift between wales and England" the more or less likely full separation will follow? It's toughie.

Let the people decide she and democracy demands.


(Thanks to D Wildgoose for alerting me to the second article).

A good friend of mine is Welsh, and while he is not polictal in anyway, he can speak welsh, he has a welsh flag on display in his house, and he finds it funny that wales is not even represented on the union flag.
Why is that?

The U.K takes Wales for granted.
Maggie Thatcher's ruthless busting of the miners showed the Welsh where they stood in the scheme of things.

Of course Scotland at the time had North Sea Oil and had to be wooed.
N.I was something akin the the Falkland Islands, an isolated outpost of Britannia that had to be defended.
Where I live in South East Ireland, Swansea seems a lot closer than Portadown, culturally and it's a lot easier to get to by public transport.
(Maybe Wales should enter a political union with The Republic, that would be a cool flag a tricolour ith a dragon on it).

Yep! There are so many interconnections between the two islands.

Interesting concept; I'd like to see the economics on that one
