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 anything wales has experienced. 

Wales is doing very well out of devolution but it worries me the number 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 don't 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 anything for me" the same time they are collecting their free prescriptions or going somewhere with their free bus pass.

It also took devolution for wales to get new hospitals and schools. over 15 brand new hospitals and even more schools.
Again, Westminster didn't care enough to build schools and hospitals.

Most of those against devolution seems to think its the first step to independence so its a threat to their beloved union.
This is nonsense.
It's simply welsh people doing what they see is best for their nation and having the power to do so


If you don't like the politicians down Cardiff bay vote them out.
If you think they are of poor quality, get involved yourself.

All i see down there is mostly welsh people who have had real jobs went to state schools and suffered hardships like the rest of us.
They have bettered themselves and devolution has given them the chance to become AM'S


People say they are poor quality because they are not your typical Eton snob who is in a bubble with no grasp of reality.
Give me welsh people any day.

Wales losing devolution would damage Wales far more than leaving the EU.
Every one of you benefits or have benefited from it and you don't know it.

Get behind it, make it work, change it, get involved, it's yours, nobody else's but please for the sake of wales don't turn against it.

The overachieving nation innovators/inventors/scientists/Actors/musicians/sports people etc

Wales is a small nation that has punched above its weight in just about everything.  However, there are many people in wales (especially among the 50 + age group) who will happily tell you that the Welsh people are somehow uniquely a bit thick and not capable of running a country.  This attitude is a result of being told this for many decades. Before the widespread use of the internet, the BBC and English newspapers had a monopoly on the opinions of the Welsh people. They convinced many in Wales that Wales is just a 'principality' it 'isn't a real country' it has 'achieved nothing', Wales 'needs England' to survive, the welsh people 'are not capable of looking after their own interests' and lots more.  This is complete nonsense, Wales has always punched above its weight and its time the people started to acknowledge this. Welsh people have always been smart enough to run a small country. Wales has made a huge contribution to the world conside

                   The over-achieving little nation. Quite often I have come across an attitude among the older generations of Wales being an irrelevant little nation that hasn't given the world anything of note.  I understand that they were brought up at a time where the welsh were constantly put down or ignored. This has engrained in them a complete lack of confidence in their welsh identity and the capability of the welsh people. Many still think welsh people are not capable of governing themselves and even mock the idea. A number of the same people also have some very strange take on welsh history, denying the fact that the welsh even existed before it was annexed by England. This is something that was pushed on tot he welsh people to discredit the idea of an independent welsh nation.  Anyway.... Here is a small list (not complete) list of welsh folk who have proven these people wrong Famous Welsh innovators and visionaries Some elements of

Over 80% of anti welsh language comments are from English people 36% live in Wales.

Most of us would have come across anti welsh language folk in our time, especially online where people often make a comment and run away before they are proven wrong. This week there has been an unusually high volume of anti welsh posts due to what has been reported in the news and some papers.   I clicked on a few of these profiles and found nearly all wasn't even welsh. This gave me an idea… I had some spare time on my hands so I decided to do some of my own unscientific research. I used my own programming skills to make a few scripts to scan twitter and a few other websites and visited a number of Facebook pages looking for debates on the welsh language. I then visited the profiles of all of these people. If their location wasn’t clear I  done a bit of scanning to determine the locations. For other people who I couldn’t determine the locations for I had to bend some rules to get their ip addresses and some times home addresses. After I logged the numbers I delet
