"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

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.

Did your MP vote against bombing Syria?

What a difference a year makes. In September 2014 the London parties were desperate to vote for another war in Iraq and Labour MPs were ordered to vote in favour of bombing Iraq. In December 2015 Labour's new leader, Jeremy Corbyn, had no choice but to allow his MPs to have a free vote because he was naive enough to fill his shadow cabinet with so many war mongers. We should keep this in mind before back slapping all those Labour MPs who voted against bombing Syria.

Since war is such an exciting subject the EBC's David Cornock has actually provided a full list of all of Wales' MPs and how they voted.

When you are bored with killing your own people, why not bomb another country? Share via twitter | facebook
