|Colonialism now extends beyond the real world into the virtual world|
Nominet are responsible for the .UK TLD, they have been around since 1986 and they are based right next to Oxford. Now the sharper readers will instantly realise that Oxford is not in Wales, it is of course in England. I made this little graphic using google maps to show exactly where Nominet is.

- Would you be opening up an ofice in Wales to handle these?
- If not, where will they be run from and why wouldn't you run them from Wales.
So a week has passed by and still no reply. In the mean time dotCYM has announced it is shutting down after around 7 years of campaigning for the TLDs of Wales to be run for the benefit of Wales by the people of Wales. Unfortunately due to our Labour government being complicit in this act of colonialism 2.0 then we are left with the very real possibility of yet another Welsh resource being run from England. Just like our water, our energy, our land and our sea. We live in a country where everything is either owned by foreigners, run by foreigners or simply run for the benefit of foreigners and they are allowed to get away with it because our so called Welsh media has a vested interest in allowing this to happen. All the while many parts of Wales still qualifies for top level funding from the EU as it is one of the poorest "regions" of the EU.
Isn't it time that one of the political parties started addressing this and started educating the people of Wales that we are deliberately being kept poor?
