Wales losing devolution would damage Wales far more than leaving the EU.

since devolution, welsh exports have risen by 210%
for me, this is clear proof that Westminster wasn't trying very hard to sell welsh products abroad.

It's also proof to me that welsh people know and care more for welsh interests than any privately educated toff who has probably never been to wales.

The welsh NHS is no worse or better than those in Scotland and England at the moment.The English NHS is in a crisis far beyond anyhting wales has experienced.  click link to read.  NHS faces 'humanitarian crisis' as demand rises, British Red Cross warns
Wales is doing very well out of devolution but it worries me the amount of people who have no idea what devolution has done for them.

(click link to see a previous post of mine with a list of what it has given you up until 2013. I could add far more but i dont have the time at the moment. )  Devolution has been great for Wales. Don't let anyone tell you any different. (list)


Many people say things like "it's never done a…

Wales is not a bloody principality and hasn't been since 1536,

Many welsh people seem to have this obsession with putting wales down at every opportunity.
Why they do this i dont know but one term such people cling on to is "wales is a PRINCIPALITY" it often comes with "its not a real country anyway" .
Now where is the proof of this? can they direct me to the pages on the welsh government website or uk government website or any other to prove to me that wales "isn't a country but only a principality" ?
Here is what the Welsh government say. here link
11. Is Wales a Country or a Principality? Wales is not a Principality. Although we are joined with England by land, and we are part of Great Britain, Wales is a country in its own right. We have a long history that goes from the old welsh kingdoms and the middle ages. We have had a 'Prince of Wales' from 1301, when Edward I created the title. The title is given to the eldest son of each English monarch. The Prince of Wales is Prince Charles, who is the present h…

Devolution has been great for Wales. Don't let anyone tell you any different. (list)

what has  devolution has given wales so far.? (list) I have noticed recently that many in wales are saying devolution has brought no benefit to wales whatsoever. 
This is a result of the way the media reports any negatives regarding devolution but ignore the huge number of positives and people who want devolution to have failed spreading untruths.
This is a dangerous situation for devolution and shouldn't be taken lightly.  Carwyn jones was complacent during brexit, He thought wales would never vote for brexit because wales benefited greatly from the EU and have traditionally been pro EU. 
I see the same happening with devolution. He thinks because a few polls a few years back said wales wants more power he wont even contemplate even the idea of wales turning against devolution.
However Wales is at a break next speed doing just that.  People have a lot of problems they want  to blame on something. Firstly it was the EU. Now devolution is in their sights. Unless you dig a little deeper y…

What has Wales given the world?

The Welsh are an over achieving people who have throughout history given the world more than another nation of similar size. 

From American presidents to inventors who have converted the world.  
It's an ambitious little nation with a heart of a lion.

However :( 
I have found a strange attitude among the older generation. An attitude that has been drummed into them in the days before the world wide web and satellite tv. 
Broadcasters like the BBC had a huge say in how they viewed the world.
If the BBC said Wales was too stupid for devolution the people believed Wales was too stupid for devolution

Today Many seem dismissive of any Welsh achievement. 
They seem hostile to any talk of a Welsh nation and the Welsh has power over its own affairs.
Many seem to think wales is some sicko nation whose people are some genetically inferior race who have achieved nothing throughout history.
Obviously not all think like this, but a fair chunk does.
They couldn't be further from the truth.
The Welsh ar…

The media wont tell you how well Wales has done since devolution.

The current media set up in Wales has got the people where they want them.
Its about as far from impartial as you can get.

For example. The benefits of devolution to Wales have been HUGE and I mean HUGE.
Devolution has transformed Wales for the better but the media wont tell you this.
They will tell you that the welsh nhs is failing but they wont tell you its because of the huge cuts from London.
They want you to think its failing because of devolution. Its the same with education.
People in Wales have a negative opinion of devolution because of how the current media refuses to report any positive story's regarding devolution.

This means dai Jones who is against devolution can be sitting in a cafe opened my someone after funding from the assembly saying how devolution has done nothing for Wales. He got there by bus using his free bus pass, provided by the assembly. He needs to get the bus back soon to pick up his free prescription funded by the assembly then meet his grand daughte…

What is wales to you?

What is wales to you?

To me wales is 1500 years of history, beautiful poetry unrivaled the world over.
A vibrant welsh language scene with world class musicians.
A nation that has one of europe's oldest language that has survived over 1000 years of attempts to kill it off.
To me wales is its dramatic and varied landscape that takes my breath away without fail every time i set eyes upon it.
To me wales is a country that has given the world more than any other nation of its size. a nation that has always punched above its weight.
A nation that has kept its identity after Wars and conquest, after being butchered and stamped on.
For 100s of years that little nation has resisted all attempts to rid it of its identity and they have all failed.


Today there are people in wales who are still trying to get rid of all traces of a separate welsh identity.
They want the language gone, they want devolution finished.
They want the anthem sung in english.
I beg you people to learn the history of that grea…
