We'll keep a welcome...

Just been watching "Dom's on the case" where Dom Littlewood looked at the drugs lottery in Britain. An item on free prescriptions this side of the border saw one English village vote to apply to become part of Wales. Here's the story! The residents were dressed in traditional Welsh dress (or Dragon costumes), had replaced the Union flag throughout the village with the Draig Goch and had even renamed the local pub as Llanfairpwll......

But their application, sung to the tune of 'We'll keep a welcome', was dismissed by none other than the Assembly's youngest politician, Bethan Jenkins. Though proud of the way Audlem's residents had acknowledged how great Wales is, Bethan wasn't sure how feasible it was for Wales to suddenly start colonising middle-England!

It was quite worrying to see that the BBC's crew seemed to think the Millennium Centre is actually the Senedd: every reference to the Welsh Assembly was voiced over images of the WMC.

But at least the story shows things really aren't that bad here afterall!

Nadolig Llawen!

It was quite a humouros experience. I don't mind colonising middle England at all;-)
