OF WALES & THE WELSH

Leanne Wood,( former leader of Plaid Cymru and a former AM for South Wales Central which includes Penarth ) has come under attack for publishing a cartoon on Facebook which suggests that people who want Britain to Leave the European Union are, in effect, Nazis .
The controversial cartoon shows a figure representing the EU arm-wrestling with a Nazi Swastika over a ballot box.
On social media the lack-lustre Leanne, who was replaced as Leader of Plaid Cymru last year, has praised the tasteless, politically-motivated and grossly misleading cartoon as a “powerful image”.
Leanne Wood served as the leader of Plaid Cymru from March 2012 to September 2018. Plaid Cymru supporters have lambasted her lack of judgement – condemning her Facebook post as “idiotic”‘, “childish” and “totally inappropriate”.
Ironically Plaid Cymru itself (whose anti-semitic founder, Penarth author Saunders Lewis, praised Hitler and backed the Fascists in the Spanish Civil War) has plenty of fascist skeletons hidden away in its own murky history.
Plaid Cymru first came to prominence after a terrorist arson attack committed by three of its central figures on the RAF bombing school on the Lleyn Peninsula in 1936.
It was at this bombing school young RAF airmen were to be trained to meet the growing threat posed by Nazi Germany.
In the 1960 and 1970s nationalists and fellow-travellers committed a series of terrorist bombing and arson attacks across Wales targeting major infrastructure and “English-owned” holiday homes .
The fascist element of nationalism reached its zenith in the creation of the “Free Wales Army” (whose uniforms and insignia aped those of the Nazis) and in the sinister Mudiad Amdiffyn Cymru which planted three bombs on the processional routes of at the Investiture of the Prince of Wales in 1969. (A soldier was killed in one explosion and a young boy injured in another)

When in black text the wording ‘Welsh Language’ means the ‘Language of the peoples of Wales’ and is therefore the majority language ie ‘English’
The ancient language of parts of Wales, varied as it is, as spoken by a tiny minority in Wales is called ‘Welsh’ or ‘the ancient Welsh language’
