Thanks for any assistance you can give to make this list more comprehensive and more informative – we leave YOU to decide who are the good guys and who are damaging Wales for the Welsh, based on the evidence provided. As I provide & host this data I reserve the right to comment.

I QUOTE:

.

“Bilingualism is a transitional, not a final ideal. A self-governing Wales would eventually adopt Welsh as its sole official language.”
…J.E. DANIELS – (Nationalists’ second leader.)

“Our aim is to make Wales self-governing. Welsh workers moving to work in England are going to an alien soil.”
… J.E. DANIEL – Nationalists’ second leader. 1937

“A suicidal policy”
… J.E. DANIEL – on linking Wales to England by building the Severn Bridge.

“Plaid’s aspirations remain full self-government, the status that used to be called independence.”
… Cynog DAFIS – Plaid’s Policy Director. 2000

1966 “Successive governments have tried to assimilate the Welsh and destroy the Welsh nation.”
 Gwynfor EVANS – post-war Plaid President. 1966

“It [S4C] was always a jobs-for-the-boyos channel. There was lots of money being given to independent production companies run by veteran Welsh language campaigners from the 1970s who produced programmes that no-one watched.”
… Mike FLYNN – (BBC Wales 1978 – 1989)

“Anyone who was connected got on the gravy train when S4C was launched. The ability to speak Welsh was a passport to public money.
Going back to the year after launch the joke at BBC in Llandaff was that most of the programmes would have been cheaper to mail out on video!”
… Mike FLYNN – (BBC Wales 1978 – 1989)

“We have no idea how we are going to pay farmers next year”
Leslie GRIFFITHS – Welsh Regional Assembly, Agriculture Minister.

“Labour are unable to win a General Election, self-government for Wales is the only answer.”
… Ieuan Wyn JONES – Plaid’s likely next leader in 1992.

“[The Crachach] maintains their control over Welsh cultural institutions with a jobs-for-the-boyos culture. Their sense of self-righteous entitlement in their attempts to preserve the language at the cost of the country’s rich English-speaking heritage have a negative effect – putting monoglot Welsh people off learning about the language.”
… Leigh JONES –

“Wales’ cultural identity is at loggerheads. To the English-speakers, the Crachach are snobs controlling the language in their own interests. To the Welsh-speakers, the English-speakers aren’t really as Welsh as us and shouldn’t have an opinion on the language unless they’re willing to learn it.”
… Leigh JONES –

WALES, Vincent KANE 01

“One of the focal points for that self-appointed elite is S4C. 
S4C receives pounds 100million a year to produce Welsh language programmes for a minority audience.
Vincent KANE – (Broadcaster & Journalist)

“Between the mid-sixteenth century and the mid-eighteenth century Wales had practically no history at all, and even before that it was the history of rural brigands who have been ennobled by being called princes.”
Neil KINNOCK

“The final stone in the edifice will not be a Welsh parliament. That will be the foundation: the building will start of that, not the end.” 
Saunders LEWIS – Nationalist Party founder and first leader. 1930

“We cannot aim at anything less, than to annihilate English in Wales.” 
Saunders LEWIS – Nationalist Party founder and first leader.

“At once he [Hitler] fulfilled his promise—a promise which was greatly mocked by the London papers months before that—to completely abolish the financial strength of the Jews in the economic life of Germany.”
Saunders LEWIS – Nationalist Party founder and first leader.

“This movement of population is one of the most horrible threats to the continuation and life of the Welsh nation ever suggested in history.” 
Saunders LEWIS on the idea of evacuating English children to Wales to protect them from German bombing. 1940

“… ‘It must be an Assembly of the people, not an Assembly of the Crachach’.
… Rhodri MORGAN 1999

“The nationalists’ prejudice against the English language has deep roots, which stretch back to nationalist founder Saunders Lewis,”
Llew SMITH MP

“While BBC Wales TV receives just £18.8million for the vast majority of Wales.
The Welsh language magazine Golwg, with a 3,000 circulation, has received more than £700,000 of Arts Council money.”
Llew SMITH MP

“The BBC, in their appointment system, is at the forefront of appeasing and encouraging the Welsh language lobby.
Every BBC Wales Controller has been a Welsh speaker. 
Just one example of the bias of the BBC against English speakers in Wales.
Another is the fact that even though Welsh is a minority language, half the BBC journalists are Welsh speakers, a quarter of them broadcasting in the English language.”

… Llew SMITH MP

“There is a Welsh language “bias” at the top of many Welsh organisations. 
My greatest concern is that by insisting on Welsh for many top jobs, Wales loses out.
Increasingly, everything is geared to the minority of Welsh speakers. 
While others, often with tremendous skills, talent and creativity – but only fluent in English – have to be satisfied with the left-overs in jobs and so many other aspects of their lives,”
Llew SMITH MP

“An independent Welsh government answerable only to the people of Wales. This is our aim.” 
… Dafydd Elis THOMAS New Plaid President  at the 1987 General Election. 

“I stood for election to the Westminster parliament to secure my release from it, and for the return of my nation to full national status.”
…  Simon THOMAS MP – Plaid Newly elected 2000

“This is my promise. If you elect me, the first problem to face the new government after the General Election will be the problem of Welsh home rule.”
Lewis VALENTINE – Welsh Nationalist Party founding group. 1929
 

“The language policy must recognise Welsh is the language proper to Wales”. 

… The Welsh Language Society when pressurising the Regional Assembly
“Our aims are: a Welsh parliament with 100 members, to no longer send MPs to Westminster and to take functions remaining in Westminster and transfer them to a Welsh parliament.”
Dafydd WIGLEY – on taking over the Plaid Presidency. 1988

“We need to protect our people against the influx. The tension between locals and those who move in is going to be terrible.”  
Dafydd WIGLEY – on taking over the Plaid Presidency. 1988

“The Government must control immigration of the English to Wales before it boils over.”
Dafydd WIGLEY – on taking over the Plaid Presidency. 1988

I believe the extremists choose their words more carefully now.

They skirt around the issue with phrases like “self-governing nation”. They are reluctant to be honest about the demands for a separatist and independent Wales.

“And the reason is most of the electorate of Wales are not foolish and value their homeland above slogans, mantras and hatred, they would reject it – it’s as simple as that.

Though they are badly let down by some of their more moronic followers with their stupidity, foul language and bullying aggression, which is in fact increating the opposition via more rational patriotic Welsh, who do not wish to see the region destroyed and the language develope unassailable opposition as a result of compulsion and unrealistic aims of the lunatic minority.

NB:
in the interest of accuracy material in the main text in blue was written by someone other than myself.

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’
