Caswell always used to be in Swansea. but not any more, according to the DIY SOS programme on BBC1 last week, they said ''Caswell Bay is in South Wales'' about six times in all, and Swansea didn't get a mention. It's really not good enough especially when the presenter admitted they'd never been to a more beautiful location.
I suspect that the Wales government friends at BBC Cardiff help ensure that any potentially prestigious location featured on national TV should carry the name 'Wales' in some form.

I also love waving the flag at times, but you've got to know when to stop that, and when to start forming a reasoned argument based on facts rather than emotion.
If you had traveled the world with open eyes and a fair mind ''Nothing compares to a Welshman or Wales'' would have become Wales or Welshmen are as good as any nation.

Can you see how emotion maybe clouding your judgement?

I couldn't agree more, born and bred in Wales, I've supported everything Welsh for over sixty years, and I'm now being made to feel alien by this Welsh language policy adopted in the assembly, and more worryingly poisoning the empty heads that welcome it.

So according to you, he should not bother to communicate with the majority of Welsh people in Wales who are not fluent Welsh speakers.
If that's what you think, you could have slotted neatly into Pol Pot's regime in Cambodia.

After the Covid update this morning, Drakeford was asked by the press to answer in Welsh as well as English, ''because it would be helpful'' was the advice by the correspondent.
Does anyone know of any Welsh speakers who are unable to speak English?
There used to be a few in the mountains of North Wales in the sixties and seventies, but not now surely.
I know there are thousands of residents of different ethnicity in Wales, who may have some difficulty understanding English. In reality, it would have been more helpful, if he had at least acknowledged this. even if unable to address it. He seems determined to do anything he can to score political points, and drive wedges between England and Wales.
I think he's noticed how well Nicola has done during the crisis for the independence movement in Scotland.

Excellent post, you're spot on particularly with your reference to the education system.
My partner has been a teacher all her life, the last 20 years she's been on the senior leadership team of one of the biggest comps in the area. Ironically, they had to dump Politics from the curriculum because there was no demand for it, and now the WAG or whatever its called has given the vote to 16 year olds ( you don't have to be a genius to work out why )
It's truly frightening, Thankfully, I will be moving to a more sensible part of the world now that Cardiff will be taking my tax off me.

Very solid performances at the back of our defence today, very poor game with not much being created at either end. I've never been a fan of Bidwell but I thought he was way ahead of anyone else on the pitch today.
It was 68,000 attendance for these two sides at Villa Park in the 1964 F A Cup semi-final. not 63,000 as stated.

I've re-examined my post in light of your quite tenuous points regarding Brooks and Williams. In my opinion both players are still a long way short of the quality and experience to guarantee an England place, but if Williams continues his rate of development, he certainly could be at that level in a year or two, but in any case he was born in Wrexham
After all, I was referring in my post to the six players born in England that started the game.
I should point out that I have followed Wales far and wide for 50 years, enduring some serious disagreements with West Ham and Spurs fans at Wembley matches in the seventies, I'm not a plastic fan by any means, it's been a lifetime of the Swans and Wales for me. But I'm afraid regardless of what anyone says, in future years I believe there may be some serious threats to the position of Welsh clubs competing in an English League. I would now prefer a less antagonistic attitude towards anything 'English' This has been gathering pace with some over recent years, and it's not been well received.
So in view of the potential threat, I would prefer to see a slightly less aggressive attitude in place.

I think the difference is that if six Spanish born players were playing for Wales, the crowd would probably not be singing ''Always sh** on the Spanish side of the world''

We started the game with six players born in England, and if we are to be perfectly honest would all probably choose to play for England if their place in the squad were guaranteed.
I point this out only because of the strong anti-English sentiment that exists with many Welsh fans, and the political capital that benefits the Independence movement in Wales when Wales teams excel in the world of sport.
I ideally would like SCFC to enjoy a long future in the English League system, it's taken for granted by many, but things could change, and a little more respect to English born players and recognition of the benefits we enjoy in the EFL would certainly be a positive step.

Solid performance against a very dogged and determined team. The majority of our players now are English, so our next game against England may attract a lot of unwelcome attention to that fact.

It was a miracle that we got into the play offs last season with such a weak midfield. It looks like it could be a lot worse this year, especially without Brewster to get some goals for us.
