Welsh villages and valleys flooded for England.

We often talk of Tryweryn but often forget the flooding of other valleys and villages to feed England with water.
For example... the elan valley.. "In 1892, the British government passed the Birmingham Corporation Water Act allowing the council to effect compulsory purchase of the total water catchment area of the Elan and Claerwen valleys . 180 sqm of Wales was given to Birmingham to do what they wanted and it was nothing Wales couLd do about it

The Act also gave Birmingham the powers to move more than 100 people living in the Elan Valley. All the buildings were demolished.

Lake Vyrnwy Was built in the 1880s to supply Liverpool with water.  Those that lived in the village of  Llanwddyn and surrounding farms were forced to move before their homes were demolished and the area flooded

As far as i know so far these lakes were built to supply England with water ..........

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
