Extremist? Moi?

Plaid Cymru’s top boot-boy obviously hasn’t seen the latest memo:
THE Tory party must apologise for the flooding of the Tryweryn Valley if it wants to be forgiven, Plaid Cymru MP Adam Price declared today...
The Tryweryn valley was flooded in 1965, one year before David Cameron was even born, so quite why he and the present day Conservatives should be asking to be “forgiven” by Price is a mystery. Price also was presumptious and arrogant enough to demand that apology on behalf of the Welsh people, the same Welsh people who were apparently suffering from a bout of amnesia (or perhaps unlike Price they simply don't believe in the concept of collective responsibility?) when they went to the polling stations in June.

Paranoid Plaid, only have the past for company, usually it is Edward Longshanks so flooding a valley during the 1960's is a huge step forward.

It could also be Pathetic Plaid, or Pitiable .....

I'm surprised no one has seen fit to point out that the Tryweryn Valley was flooded in 1965 under a LABOUR Government headed by Harold Wilson, (elected in 1964).

And what about the many English villages that have been similarly flooded, e.g. Ashopton (Ladybower) and Derwent (Derwent), both near me?

Oh wait, they don't count, they're English....
