I shall not even mention the result of last night’s Rugby match. But I will comment on an aspect of all such games.
Yesterday – and through most of the week – I’ve been hearing anti-English propaganda. Propaganda, that is, not aimed at the English Rugby team, but at English people and England itself in general.
Fortunately, this propaganda – filled as it seemed to be with hatred for all things English – was only spread by a few of The People of Wales.
It is a fact that the few people who call themselves “nationalists” really do use hate as a weapon. It is a fact, too, that the majority of Welsh folk who have Wales and the ways of its People in their hearts have no need for hate – they are simply proud patriots. And those proud patriots are the ones who will bring independence to our land.
