Colonialism 2.0

Colonialism now extends beyond the real world into the virtual world
You may have heard of the campaign for Wales to have it's own top level domains. An obvious example is a .com or .org. Unlike Jersey (.je), Guernsey (.gg) or the Isle of Man (.im) Wales does not have a TLD of it's own. This campaign has been handed to Nominet by the Welsh Government. That's very sporting of Nominet you might think, but just who are this Nominet.

The majority of Wales is Welsh not British

The 2011 census results are out today and I will focus on the one solitary positive statistic that I gleaned from looking at the data. The majority of Wales is Welsh not British. After 800 years of colonial rule, after everything they have thrown at us we can still reject the notion that we are British or even the possibility that we are Welsh and British.

I'm not affiliated with Plaid Glyndŵr or any party for that matter. But I am all too happy to support a cause such as this.

The hypocrisy of Ann Clwyd

Ann Clwyd hits the headlines today as she blames the Tories for killing her husband. Alright, maybe I have used some artistic license there but she did say that he died "like a battery hen". And after contracting hospital induced pnuemonia she also cites the poor condition he was left in.
