What's so bad about Essex then?

Is this an example of Plaid Cymru’s much heralded (and self-proclaimed) civic nationalism then?
The programme of events organised by Carmarthenshire County Council to celebrate the re-opening of Carmarthen’s Lyric Theatre is more suited to Essex than to Carmarthen, according to Plaid’s leader on the council, Cllr Peter Hughes Griffiths
The offending events?
"A screening of Rocky, a silent movie from 1923, and a trio of Scottish tenors!"

Ok, not really my cup of tea either, but why on earth bring Essex into the argument?

Labelled under bigotry eh? Pointing out that not a single event in the re-opening is in Welsh or about Wales is bigotry?? O'Neill - I enjoy your continuous digs at Plaid but I think you might have begun to lose the plot....

Glad you enjoy them;)

The lack of Welsh material, you can make an argument for but why then did he feel the need to make a completely unnecessary and pointless comparison to what might or might not go down well in a county at the far end of the UK?

This is not bigotry! And I am from Essex. Wales faces far more bigotry than this - 'parasites', sheep jokes, a burden on England, etc, etc. That is real bigotry!
