"The arms that you wield now are not such as your forefathers wielded; but they are infinitely more effective, and infinitely more irresistable" ~ Cymru Fydd leaflet, 1890

#DespiteBeingTaughtInWelsh

They've only gone and done it again. The Western Fail, the self-titled 'national newspaper of Wales' has insulted Welsh speakers once again in a piece that made Welsh education sound like a disability.

Colonialism 3.0

I'm in the middle of working on a new site and was looking to buy one of these newfangled .wales or .cymru website. I have mentioned these way back in 2012 with the appropriately titled Colonialism 2.0.

Wales' domain names launched in 2015 and I made the decision to keep with my .com for this site. And don't worry about an extra site, this site will remain as infrequently updated as it has always been.

Off I went to ourhomeonline.wales and sure enough the domain I was looking for was available. It then presented you with a selection of resellers that you can purchase the domain from. The initial selection is quite limited but it does present you with an option of displaying all of the resellers.

Let's all laugh at the BNP

A lot of people are currently having a bit of a laugh at the BNP after it was revealed that they failed to register themselves in time as a political party. I don't know whether this means they wont be able to field candidates in the upcoming Welsh and Scottish elections and to be honest I'm not bothered enough to look, but if any readers know please feel free to answer this question.

The BNP (and those in small right wing parties like them) provide those on the left with a few services. Firstly they give them the ability to say how disgusted they are by comments or actions (which I know from experience is always good for a few retweets or shares),

Former BNP leader Nick Griffin is now a voters of the UKIPs.

Dear Wylfa, see you in 2105

The Wylfa nuclear plant has finally ceased operating, it is the last Magnox station with the majority being shut down a decade ago. But one sentence from the news article really shows just how selfish nuclear power is.

"The whole area will then be left until final site clearance at the start of the next century in 2105."

In 2105 you may finally have hover boards but you'll still need to clean up the mess we left you. Share via twitter | facebook

The Principality Stadium

The Principality Building Society (PBS) has bought the naming rights to Wales' national rugby stadium. The word principality is an ugly word here in Wales with all sorts of negative colonial connotations.

In order to begin properly we need a quick history refresher, so let's take a trip back to 1282 when the English were really starting to tighten the noose around Wales.
