YouTube Silenced by Welsh Nationalists?

YouTube is an invaluable source of historical video material easily accessible to the public, covering a wide range of topics and like many people, I often use it for research on a variety of subjects.

When I wrote the Glasnost essay: ‘Light a Fire for Wales’, I came across a fascinating TV clip from the 1970’s of two highly respected Welsh intellectuals (Vincent Kane of BBC and Gwyn Thomas), discussing the merits and relevance of the Welsh language.

This was an unusually frank exchange of views that sadly no longer exists in the Welsh media and I cross-referenced the debate in my article using an active click on link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v5O2tq8ouqI

Not long afterwards the YouTube link stopped working and the ‘sad face’ appeared each time anyone tried to access the video!

A YouTube statement puts it down to the multiple complaints of copyright infringement which is simple enough to understand, but why would anyone object to the airing of a significant part of the Welsh history?

It appears that Gwyn Thomas’s powerful words and the message directly aimed at the Welsh speaking nationalists had to be erased from the public domain – an inconvenient truth to the New Welsh Order that Welsh Nationalists are planning for us all.

1984 for real: Death of English Medium Education for primary school pupils in Wales

jp1

The Welsh Labour Government wants ONE MILLION Welsh speakers by 2050 and to do so is planning to eliminate English language teaching in primary schools, what are the implications?

After 17 years of Labours’ dominance of Welsh politics their Social Engineering Agenda is finally in the open but anyone expecting a debate on the merits of dragging Wales back into the 13th century world or any scrutiny of such policies is going to be disappointed – Welsh Media does not tolerate dissent or any ‘disrespect’ of the Welsh language and its culture!

We are only days away from the Welsh Assembly elections and most of us have seen endless politico posturing and their promises of a better tomorrow to get our vote but none of the Party Political Broadcasts including the leader debates have ever touched upon the Welsh language imposition –   there is only a Deafening Silence!

Take the article following this extended preamble which has been ‘shamelessly plagiarised’ from BBC Wales’ web pages: “Welsh Labour to create One Million Welsh speakers by 2050” (BBC Wales has a habit of removing pages that may prove to be embarrassing to their cause).

The only external body invited by BBC to comment was the Welsh language pressure group (Cymdeithas yr Iaith), at best a looney organisation basing their ‘living’ upon a simple premise “Every child born in Wales has an entitlement and a birth right to speak Welsh”

Putting aside the sheer madness of their stance and unreserved support of anything Welsh or Cymraeg as they call it, BBC Wales doesn’t say, or asks how One Million Welsh speakers are going to be created.

Welsh Education: Children betrayed by the Welsh Labour Government

In most developed countries, success in life is generally based on the quality of education one gets as a child, but in Wales, where the standard of education is beyond miserable, most children would do a lot better if they got expelled!

Image1

To put it all in perspective and how we got to this sorry state, we need to go back to the beginning of Welsh devolution when the Welsh Education became the sole responsibility of the Welsh Assembly Government.

The newly formed Welsh Labour Government didn’t take long to start dismantling the long established parity with the education system in England under the guise of creating an education system with a unique ‘Welsh Distinction’ that all successive education ministers have followed blindly to this very day.

This unique ‘Welsh Distinction’ soon became synonymous with the Welsh language imposition on a scale that went far beyond anything that existed before in Welsh education. In recent years, primary school children in English-Medium education lose between 30 – 60% of the available teaching time on learning the Welsh language!  (Token Welsh was taught for years before the devolution to largely disinterested children and generally confined to circa 5% of the available teaching time with no apparent damage to kids or standards of their education – The only exception was Gwynedd which included Anglesey at the time and few schools in the Welsh speaking areas of West Wales).

The Welsh speaking nationalists took control of the Welsh Labour Party that has dominated Welsh politics ever since, and they have used the devolution as a stepping stone to promote and impose the Welsh language in education and public employment by any means irrespective of whether the measures used were legal or not.

That was beginning of the end for the Welsh education as we knew it and unquestionably the sole reason for the ongoing and near terminal decline of the Welsh education system.

The scheming nationalists must have known that any parity with the English education had to end and quickly as it wouldn’t have taken long to establish that the new Welsh language provisions were damaging children’s education through comparative tests that still existed at the time.

BBC CYMRU Wales Censorship and Racist Slur

One doesn’t need ‘mega brains’ to figure out that the BBC Wales English language services are under the control of Welsh speaking nationalists and this has been the case for many years now.

Its current Director Rhodri Talfan Davies was appointed back in 2011 through family inheritance as his father had the job before him and before that Rhodri’s father got the job from his father!

The Talfan Davies family dynasty has an absolute and the total grip of BBC’s editorial policy with an agenda to promote and impose the Welsh language upon the Welsh majority that closely mirrors the aims and intent of the Welsh Labour’s Governance under its Welsh speaking First Ministers (Carwyn Jones currently and Rhodri Morgan before him).

The broader issues raised above including the shameless Welsh language propaganda by the BBC’s Welsh speaking broadcasters on the English language programmes (Huw Edwards and many others) will be dealt with at some other time but for now the principal aim of this article is to highlight the plight of ordinary people who dare to challenge the almighty BBC CYMRU Wales.

There are not many opportunities available to Welsh people to ‘debate’ the Welsh politics via BBC Wales and in most cases the ‘freedom’ to do so is closely monitored by the invisible and unaccountable ‘moderators’ who operate upon the so-called ‘reactively-moderated’ criteria that must obey the BBC’s house rules’.

WELSH DEVOLUTION – A Single Party Governance on Orwellian Terms: 16 years of failure and more to come!

manifesto

With the Assembly elections looming upon us the Welsh electorate has some unenviable choices to make, but can it make the real choices in the absence of the free media and with virtually no scrutiny  of the key issues that have made Wales a basket case ‘nation’ of Europe and the UK?

Of all the devolved UK regions, Wales happens to be relatively unique in the context that it has a ‘living’ minority language and a culture that has somehow become ‘More Equal’ and where some 7% of fluent Welsh speakers have managed to take over the Ownership of Wales.

It’s not simple to explain this phenomenon but the nationalist agenda of creating a ‘Welsh speaking Cymru (Wales)’ started a long time ago and over time they managed to infiltrate the key Welsh institutions, then simply waited for the right opportunity to arrive.

The following statement is from the House of Lords archives (1958) and it goes a long way to explain what’s happening in Wales today:

“Welsh nationalists have captured the BBC Wales and are making a determined assault on our schools. I am afraid these Eisteddfod-going Welsh-language-thumping people will stop at nothing to force their views on the majority”

Devolution has given them the gift they waited for, then the sinister political manipulation of devolved powers by the Welsh speaking Labour Party leaders (Rhodri Morgan first and now Carwyn Jones) who together with the unquestionable complicity and support of the Welsh Media (BBC / ITV Wales) and to the lesser extent Western Mail and the Daily Post seemingly managed to achieve the impossible – A Tribal Minority ruling the Majority!

Fluent Welsh speakers have created a myth that Wales belongs to them: “Their Country, Their Language, Their Culture“. Therefore, the Welsh Governance should be on their terms – A form of self-granted ‘Exceptionalism’ and all at a huge price to Wales and so it seems everything that matters or should matter to Wales is now in a terminal decline!

LIGHT A FIRE FOR WALES – Burn an English Home

mug350Mug Inscription: Taniwch Dros Cymru which when translated means ‘Light a Fire for Wales’, the motif shown depicts a Burning Home and to make sense in the Welsh context it must be an English home?

This is a chilling and sinister Welsh souvenir from the not so distant past and whilst the burning of English homes has stopped, Wales now has a new and an equally sinister order named ‘ENGLISH NOT’.

The Welsh Labour Government over the last 16 years has used its devolved powers to elevate a minority language and its culture through compulsion and diktat to a privileged position.

The better informed but gagged and silenced people of Wales see this as a Social Engineering concept not seen in Europe since the Stalinist era and for some very good reasons:

It’s now no longer possible for the lesser equals (Non Welsh speakers circa 80% +) to hold most of the public jobs or to educate their children THROUGH THE MEDIUM OF ENGLISH LANGUAGE (The parental freedom of choice to choose educational language for their children in primary years has been or is being removed by the Local Education Authorities on Anglesey, Gwynedd, Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire)

This policy has been fully endorsed by the Welsh Government and by Estyn also and is now a format planned for the rest of Wales.

These measures appear to have the full blessing of BBC Cymru Wales (note the order!) and other Welsh media who will say and do anything to suppress, sanitise, and squash an open debate on this subject.

Perhaps we should not be surprised that anything that matters or should matter in Wales is in a downward spiral; including standards in Education, the NHS and the Economy (Is a common link the Welsh Language)?

The people of Wales should take the heed of Gwyn Thomas and what he had to say on this subject some 30 years ago.

Finally and back to the contemporary Wales, came across a fascinating assessment of Welsh Government’s Orwellian world by Natalie Solent on Samizdata web pages and well worth reading:

Y Fro Nationalists ‘Shoot down Royal Air Force’

At this very moment David Cornock of BBC Wales, as their Westminster correspondent, has written an article which touches upon the Welsh Language: “William Hague’s Bed Time Reading” ( http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-politics-29159356 ) and inadvertently opened up a small opportunity for those who feel uneasy about being forced to assimilate into the Welsh language and its culture to express their feelings and thoughts.

This is easier said than done as BBC Wales in post devolution Wales excels itself by sanitising and censoring comments that expose sheer nonsense and insanity of Welsh language imposition and policies in Wales, especially in education, that is damaging children “Socially and Academically”.

This brings me back to RAF Valley on Anglesey who in 2011 published on their website a Welcome Message from the Station Commander to promote Day School Allowance for North Wales (DSA) aimed at service personnel with young children – In other words RAF is providing an opportunity of good education for children in their care in English language within the local independent schools, by funding the school fees.

Are North Wales Police Protecting The Ugly Face Of Welsh Nationalism?

With the Scottish independence issue quickly approaching the ‘Day of Reckoning’, we have seen horrendous instances of Scottish nationalism and its hatred of anything English.

Anti-English racists, better known as ‘Cybernats’ are using internet to intimidate, threaten, smear and demean anyone who happens to hold a different viewpoint or belief on the question of Scottish Independence.

We do have legal provisions to protect people from hate campaigns at long last and certainly in the Sottish context the Crown Office may start to get tough on the trolls and make them accountable for the often incessant and hysterical on-line abuse of innocent victims.

Time will tell if the Crown chooses to act and prosecute as they have the tools and could demand locking up the low-life nationalists, assuming they are found guilty in Courts of Law, for up to five years.

Personally, I’m not holding my breath that anything tangible will be done as nationalists in the UK context seem to be the ‘protected species’. Often authorities, mistakenly in my view, choose to turn a blind eye through ‘political expedience considerations’ rather than to face head-on the bullies who believe that they are untouchable and above the law.

Overzealous political expedience and political correctness must never be a consideration if we are going to have a fair and balanced society and above all we must uphold the duty of care by protecting vulnerable and abused people in our society – Case in point, the current Rotherham Child Abuse Scandal, that could have and should have been avoided. In other words there must never again be ‘Sacred Cows or Invisible Elephants’ that create precedents for doing NOTHING!

Glasnost is back!

For a full year now Glasnost has been involved in exhaustive and at times frustrating investigative research upon delicate aspects of ‘Welsh Governance’ by extracting information of public interest from the Local Authorities and the Welsh Assembly Government – Glasnost is now back with new revelations that will disturb and shock as to the context of what is being done in our name by the few and for the few.

The next article is a simple prelude to a series of articles that we will publish over the next few months; all evidence based with the primary focus being on Conwy Borough Council and their Local Education Authority.  What has happened and what is happening in Conwy today is simply a platform as to what to expect in the rest of English speaking Wales in the not too distant future.

BBC Wales and other Welsh media will not be spared either as they have all tried to stop significant news from breaking into the national domain.  They have concealed the real issues and facts relative to a recent ‘incident’ specific to Conwy LEA and of prime significance and relevance to the English speaking community of the county of Conwy and rest of the Wales.

The details of the ‘incident’ were highly distorted and only broadcast to the Welsh language audiences by the BBC. Trinity Mirror newspapers were just as bad if not worse with some appalling and warped standards of ‘journalistic objectivity’.

Surprisingly, BBC Wales formally requested an interview with the Glasnost political editor, and then at the last minute the interview was cancelled.   We have no doubt that a gagging order came down from the very top of the BBC Wales hierarchy with no explanation other than a deafening silence.

Conwy Local Education Authority Shamelessly Stealing Children’s Future and Practising Ethnic Cleansing – Part I

If you are a parent of a child from an English speaking home, and you want the best possible English medium education for your child in their crucially important primary years; you will be hard pushed to find a primary school within Conwy LEA that can be defined as a good school and the few that are left are oversubscribed and under increasing pressure to lose the remaining teachers who can’t deliver Welsh Language Curriculum and within a County that is predominantly English speaking.

Conwy Borough Council and its LEA have been planning your child’s future for many years and have used deceit, fraud and stealth to impose terms that suits their vision of the Borough’s future.   This future is based on Welsh nationalist terms where only those being able to use the Welsh language with significant fluency will be considered suitable for public employment including education.

There are some exceptionally strong words in this statement that some people who may not be familiar with the legal provisions applicable to Local Authorities in the discharge of their duties as a public service may consider this article to be unfair and perhaps unbalanced.

Not so, as those very words have been used in direct correspondence with the Conwy Borough Council’s Legal Team on the matters concerning the Borough’s primary education policies and all we have from them were some muted apologies for getting legislative provisions wrong and a large amount of irrelevant nonsense with the intention to deflect from the real issues at hand.
