...but not perfectly 'Meek & Mild' Welsh 'Cultural' Nationalism as Politically represented by Plaid 'Daffodil' Cymru, oh no! no guts! Though that's not the truth, the reality is they are busy beavering away behind thge scenes 'wheeling & dealing' as to what's in it for them, their MP's, MEP's and AM's. Plus of course lets not forget their 'Crachach Cronies', be they 'Consultants' and 'Lobbyists', even family members and not least generally speaking the whole fellow travelling 'Crachach Newydd' - ENGLAND's CLIENT TRIBE IN WALES. Of course the main reason that motivates Plaid Cymru from attempting to mobalise masses behind a real radical 'on the street' struggle for Independence is because usually such struggles throw up radical leaders. That's the last thing the largelly Bourgeouise' leadership of Plaid Cymru want, no way and what their nice and neat 'Status Quo' be threatened. Then there is their 'secret agenda' to place the 'Invisible Government' of Y Crachach Newydd in control of our country (check out film Zardoz, is this a possible Welsh Future?).
How's that for a bit of 'Welsh conspiracy theory' but hang on, I might have something there? will have to dig deeper into the Gorsedd aka maybe a Cymric'Welsh Brotherhood'. Whatever, more on the Welsh Cultural Movement in fourthcoming future posts, in particular those who consider 'Yr Hen Iaith' the one and only Patriotic Priority, look out for post: LANGUAGE, LAND andLIBERTY! It might help you get some where other than the Pontcanna Patagonia and actually set you all on course to establish the Adfer dream of a 'Cymru Cymraeg' but, this can only be tuelly done behind the 'Rocky Spine' of the Cambrian Mountains. The frontier for a restablished 'Pura Wallia', maybe a 'Gwlad Tiroedd Cunedda' - breakaway Cymric Cultural Free State?

By the way, interesting how CyIG aka militant wing of'Mudiad Crachach'demands that all ''Language'' matters get LCO'ed to the Welsh Assembly but not of course 'SHAMELESS4C'. Oh no! their £100 Million plus? still comes under Y Crachach Newydd comprimising control of the English Government diectly, why? because they, largelly 'Rural Cultural Rightists' do not trust 'Hwntws' who they consider to be none to cultural 'Red Necks' or, asY Crachach are fond of repeating, if anyone dares challenge them, everyone else are 'Anti - Welsh' akaAnti - Cymraeg'. B*******! really time we stoped being emotionally blackmailed over 'Yr Hen Iaith', indeed really about time we stoped letting the largelly 'Crachach Dragons Tounge' wag the 'HwntwDragonsTail' or politically we will get no further along the road to our Nations Independence and Peoples Freedom.
The truth of the matter is Plaid Cymru since day Gwynfor Evans took command, he one with Suanders Lewis & Co re 'Yr Hen Iaith' have engaged in a dual struggle, one that is cultural in advance of 'Yr Hen Iaith' and one very moderate political struggle which has brought us to a 'Dozy Devolution' while Scotland gets a Parliament, I wonder why? Whatever, we must now, if we truelly seek to establish a real Welsh Independence Movement and advance Struggle for Freedom, must of neccessity seperate such from the from the often unrealistic and over bearing influencing demands placed on such political struggle by essentially 'Rural Cultural Rightists' and 'Y Crachach Newydd'. So here's what's to be done asap ok!
First there are two choices, facing political Welsh Nationalists, the one is follow a path as set out by'SOFRANIAETH' a clearly Radical Nationalist way forwardor, be more 'Radical Republican' and work toward direction of establishing a left of centre united 'Popular Progressive Movement for Independance'. Whatever, that's all a bit way off, the important thing now is to get Welsh Nationalists and Republicans on to the streets protesting and Demonstrating, and that's needed ASAP! Even if only a few 100 or, dozen even? being involved but get Patriotic Pickets Protesting at Doors of the Welsh Assembly and Welsh 'Colonial' Office.
I mean like yesterday ok! Then inspired by an assembly of Patriots in Machynlleth on and about 19/20 Mehefin to celebrate 'Dydd y Senedd 21 Mehefin 1404'. The following day on 21 June - Mid Summers Day kick off a 'midsummer week' of protest action - 'Picket Protests', anything! Even small scale Agit - Prop Action as puting up Welsh Independence Posters or whatever? Possibly concluding with a major Demonstration demanding a Referendum and Welsh Independence. I suggest hold on Saturday 26 June,assembling at the 'Colonial Office' in Cathays Park with speeches followed by march thru Caerdydd to Welsh Assembly to hand in a letter ( I am amazed that the Cambrianistas have not already organised a petition?) stating Nationalist Demands. Forget thinking about Eisteddfods and Rugby, forget Cilmeri and Dewi Day parading! and, instead patriotically prioritize >

How could I forget, happy birthday Owain Glyndwr, I think it might be time to call upon our national hero to return to deliver us from the 'Meek & Mild' Nationalist leadership we have been stuck with, for far too long. Maybe your return just might bring fourth a much stronger and braver Nationalist leadership to then deliver us from English Rule.
The unthinkable? No! maybe it's time for a PLAID GLYNDWR - Welsh National Sovereignty Party or, failiure of such to arise may lead us to put our faith more in Glyndwr's'Bare Foot Doggis'...

Well! To start with one must take aboard the fact, that what Country any where in today's world can truelly be Independent? Then also, lets face facts, that if all Welsh Political Parties support Wales being part of the European 'Evil' Empire, thenby virtue of this fact it implies our National Sovereignty = Independence has in been surrendered, that it's a sell out of our Sovereinghty any way. This 'National Sovereignty' was of course founded on the Sovereignty of a Native Welsh Royality, see links below >

This 'Royal National Sovereignty', lost in 1282 but regained during Owain Glyndwr's War of National Liberation, then lost again upon demise of that struggle. However, there is still an arguement which still seeks restoration of 'Welsh Sovereignty' on this medieval connection, see link below >

Perhaps unfortunatly, Wales never rose to occaision ofa post French Revolution struggle for 'Popular Soverighty' that might have led to a Welsh Republic, sad to say but true radical 18th century radicals as 'Cultual Romantic Nationalist' Iolo Morgannwg were 'British Republicans' in same way as are Guardianesque'British Republicans'today. Whilst 19th Century Welsh Romantic Radicals/Cultural Nationalists would support a Welsh Chartism that sought a British Republic, although the English Chartist Henry Vincent thought Wales would make a fine Republic! But, I think he meant a Southern Welsh Republic which such contemporary Welsh Republicans as Harri Webb (R.I.P.) called a 'SilurianRepublic'. Now being sought by Llais Glywysing, see my contraversial new blog, am I serious, you decide! Unfortunatly attempts to establish Welsh Republican Movements have not been too successful, see link >

What ever, the point is, that a Welsh Republican struggle for a Welsh 'Popular Sovereignty' does not count for much at moment, of course that could all change over the coming years. As Welsh Republicans will have 'Opportunity of Occaisions' to 'Seize The Time' in campaigns opposing English Queen's Diamond Jubilee Celebrations in 2012 and 1953 Coronation Commemoration in 2013,we shall see if ''Welsh Republicans'' can walk the walk or are just talk! talk! talk! Whatever, such campaigns could provide 'umbrella and platform' out of which a new Welsh Republican Movement may arise, to struggle for 'Popular Soveignhty' and Welsh Republican form of Welsh Independence?

To conclude, I suggest to one and all who are pro - Welsh Independnce or more powers for the Welsh Assembly, please stop dithering! do something patriotically practical with great purpose, in the first instance commit to getting up to Machynlleth to commemorate and celebrate 'Dydd y Senedd 1404' on 19 Mehefin 2004. There, have yourselves a 'Patriots Picnic' in grounds of Y Plas whilst those really up for Welsh Independence hold yourselves a 'SOAP BOX NATION' discussion as what to do next very quickly. In this direction please note I again direct you towards SOFRANIAETH Blog. Keeping in mind these priorities:
1: Getting the Independence Question on the Referendum vote paper, move fast to bring pessure to bear asap! Make this an issue via media letter campaigns etc.
2: Kicking off asap the Pro - Independance 'RADICAL' Refendum Campaignasap! To save time just do it! via SOFRANIAETH S.O.S. Campaign. C'mon Cymry arise & awake!
3: Get active, get on to the streets and into the shopping Malls and outside the super markets. Make a noise and wave the flag. Waste Time and You Waste Wales!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Finnaly, stop the Plaid Cymru - Cymry Creeping 'Soft Shoe Shuffle' style of politics, that has got us absolutly no where, you would be extremly foolish to sit around waiting for Plaid Cymru to get going as they like other politicians are in main concerned with themselves - Self Interest and Self Advancement!IT IS NOW UP TO YOU THE 'RANK & FILE' RADICAL REPUBLICANS & PROGRESSIVE NATIONALISTS. Do it! or Wales is DOOMED and you better believe it! Do'nt say, I did'nt tell you ok!
