I am some what concerned that theTories are being clever when it comes to implementing their 'Colonial Cuts' upon Wales, yes! I said 'Colonial' though most of the Anglo - Left in Wales would not want to see it that way. They are more concerned in just using Welsh Discontent as 'Cannon Fodder' for their Socialist Struggle in England, their only concern for Wales is when it suits they towards their Metro Socialist ends, thus you will see them to fore arm in arm with the Welsh Cultural Nationalists Pacifists in Anti - Nazi Campaigns and such as the Anti - War (any war will do) and campaigns as against the now set aside St Athans Military Academy but on specific 'Welsh Issues' they are no where to be seen.

That's the hard 'Left of Left' for you, you know the likes of the Trotskyist 'Socialist Workers Party' but they are not alone as all 57 verities of the 'International Left' have come out of the wood work to not just jump on the Anti Cuts Band Waggon but to hopefully lead it. Don't get me wrong, I do not oppose their rush to rise up the red flag, generally I support but where I see such as being of a particular Welsh Concern and as part or, it should be of a larger Welsh Anti - Colonial Campaign they would not and that is where we part company. I will not as Leanne Woods or Bethan Jenkins jump on any or the nearest Anglo - Left Anti - Cuts Band Waggon. they who declare themselves to be left progressive political Nationalists should with others now be advancing, building and leading a Welsh National Anti - Colonial Cuts Struggle.
Quite simply what we need is an all Wales Movement, an umbrella and platform that yes concerns itself with the Anti - Tory Cuts Campaign but also takes aboard other colonial concerns as the Land & Liberty Campaign I am promoting and campaigns against the Wind Milling of Wales etc.
Sure, take aboard matters concerning 'Yr Hen Iaith' but please no more concern for 'Y Crachach' and their 'Welsh Language Industry', often capitalist commercial concerns as 'ShamelessS4C'. No! 'Yr Hen Iaith' concerns hence must be taken in consideration of full community Socio - Economic concerns and not the business interests of a minority other wise non productive petite bourgeoisie. Forget the 'exclusive' call for campaign to save 'ShamelessS4C' from Plant Crachach (CyIG), that's a distraction and one I am starting to think has been deliberatly engineered into place by the Tory Coalition Central Governement to distract Nationalists from directing anger and action in the correct direction. They have learnt from 1979, remember then the Tories renaged on an Election promise to found a Welsh Language TV Service and that caused campaign by CyIG, refusal of paying TV licences and the threat of Suicide by Gwynfor Evans.
As result of this 'Suicide Threat' the Tories capitulated and conceded to Cymru a Welsh Language TV Service, much welcomed by those who were disappointed that there was no future for Devolution then after Referendum failiure to deliver any Welsh Home Rule. What we did get under Tory Rule was as expected none too freindly Tory Rule from 1979 to 1997. However, in this period whilst Welsh Workers were to suffer greatly, a Welsh Speaking Elite came into existence as 'England's Client Tribe in Wales' for the most part media based for very good reasons of course that was not to the disadvantage of Tory desire to keep the lid on any National Libreration Struggle. Today the Plant Crachach are seeking our support for 'ShamelessS4C' and of course their future job prospects are 'Thatchers Children' or maybe that should be 'Thatchers Grandchildren?' Whatever, S4C came into existence and the Tories under Margaret Thatcher got on with the attempted destruction of Wales and now Cameron is going to finnish the job and will if Welsh Nationalists and Radical Republicans do not now ignore the Anglo - Left and Y Crachach/Plant Crachach and instead rise to join and fight in the
WELSH RESISTENCE TO THE TORY ECONOMIC OPPRESSION OF WALES.
How to do that, well learn from the British and Anglo - Welsh Left, see links below. Then make a start and what better a day to do that than on 4 November anniversary of the 1839 Newport Rising,
in an all day Protest Picket at the Welsh Assembly to demand that they do not implement the Tory Central Government Legislation in Wales. Indeed suggest to A.M's they all resign and no doubt leave a Tory - Liberal Minority 'Assembly Admistration' that would find it very difficult to continue rule of Wales. So, cause an Assembly Election, an election to use as a platform movement against Tory Rule in Wales. Thus, far better one and all march on the Assembly on the 4th November and not the Plant Crachach March distraction from reality on the 7th November. That serves no purpose and will achieve nothing, it's only real intention being to save 'Jobs for the boys/Girls', now is the time to march to save our Nation, our Communities and our people not a failed TV service which as yet to explain how could they possibly fail so badly and just where as all the millions gone and how much has been secreted away in banks and investments or whatever, don't tell us you have spent the lot?
NO MORE DISTRACTIONS! NO MORE DIVERSIONS! NO MORE POINTLESSLY PARADING and POSING, IT's TIME FOR PATRIOTS TO MARCH AND LET THAT FIRST MARCH BE ON THE ASSEMBLY DOWN IN BAE CAERDYDD. THEN LETS GET ON WITH CAMPAIGNS & PROTESTS IN A UNITED NATIONAL WELSH RESISTENCE TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF TORY COLONIAL CUTS IN WALES. AWAKE! ARISE! FIGHT BACK NOW! BUT KEEP IN MIND THIS COULD BE A LONG HAUL?

From time to time I come across stuff on the web of interest but do not have time at that moment to do much with myself, so until I do I shall park it here for others to view and get hot or cold about without comment from me, for the moment that is. If you have anything you want to draw to my attention please do.

RUSSIAN MINORITIES IN UKRAINE & LATIVA: THE ENGLISH IN WALES - OUR LARGEST MINORITY - A UNREPRESENTED SILENT MINORITY AT THE MOMENT - BUT WHAT IF?
.......They got like the Ethnic Russian Minorities in the Ukraine and Latvia, that could really spell big trouble for any Welsh Dream of Freedom, by that I mean full self Government. Indeed the question begs to be asked where does this pretty large English unrepresented Minority stand on issue as Devolution and how would they vote in a referendum on more powers for the Assembly in Bae Caerdydd. Some organisation, maybe the IWA or News Paper could do a survey on the oppinions of the English in Wales to find out where they stand on any number of Welsh Issues. I did have a booklet that give figures for the number of those who claimed to be English living in Wales and where they lived, If I remember correctly, Fflintshire was near enough 90% English (a potential 'Succession' here?) whilst Ceredigion had an English Population which was almost 50 - 50 with the native population. The census statistics halfway gives some idea as to the ethnic English Population of Wales as far as I can work out it in 2001 it stood at 20%, if ever this minority began to organise themselves to demand grants for their 'Cultural/language' or 'Racial Rights' or whatever at some future date it could really complicate a great deal regards the politics of Wales.
Little wonder Plaid Cymru did not do well there in the last General Election in certain areas as Ceredigion and, they know it too but just do not want to voice their oppinions too loudly in case they are accused of being 'racist'. it could get worse, just look at what happened in the Ukraine where the Russian Ethnic Minority where able to put one of their own into power as President and whom is now working to take the Ukraine back into the arms of Russia.
