A list of what devolution has given wales so far.

I have noticed recently that many in wales are saying devolution has brought no benifit 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.

I have decided to make a list from a simple google search of what devolution has given wales so far. 
To say devolution has done anything or has been negative for wales is untrue to say the least.

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 deleted all the data I had…

What has devolution done for wales? answer is a hell of a lot. UPDATED LIST.

Wales has benefited greatly from devolution but because of the medias inability to report anything positive, the Welsh public has been misled on what devolution has done for them.

Why on earth isn't the media telling the Welsh people how much they benefit from devolution? Did you know Wales had around 3 new hospitals in 30 years and 4 new schools before devolution?
Since devolution Wales had to build 18 new hospitals and 22 new schools because of English neglect.
Did you know exports have gone up over 200% since devolution because London wasn't even trying to sell Wales abroad?
This alone is solid proof that the interests of Wales is served far better by the Welsh people in the Welsh parliament.
It would be madness for wales to give back powers. I honestly believe that there are 2 types of people that want to end devolution.

The crazy unionist who wouldn't support it regardless of its achievements. He/she would turn Wales into an English county if they could.
These people…

WALES the overachieving nation that's been told its to stupid pt1 innovators, inventors and scientists

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.
This is part 2 of my 'overachieving nation' series that proves that the welsh people have always been smart enough to …
