Cardiff must not br another London.
As this is the anniversary of Cardiff becoming 1955) the capitol of Wales though we had no choice in the matter it is interesting to consider Vince Cable's The business secretary claiming that expanding Heathrow Airport would mean
London would continue to be a “giant suction machine draining the life” out
of the rest of the count I'm also minded to repeat Eurfyl ap Gwylims brilliant performance during the last General Election against a sneering Jeremey Paxman.
had gone on the attack as he interviewed Dr ap Gwilym, asking why Plaid
is calling for more cash for Wales when the country already gets more
than every English region. When the Plaid adviser pointed out that
London is in England and gets 115% of average UK public funding per head
against 112% for Wales, Paxman tried to suggest that London was not a
Dr ap Gwilym told Paxman he should do his homework and said London was classified as a region by the Treasury., Resulting in Paxman going losing it.
At the moments all roads lead to London and the needs of that City outride the rest of the UK. Whilst at the same time we here moans from there amongst the great and god that they are subsidising the rest of us.
But we need to take a lesson from this a devolved government in Wales must look at Cardiff in the same way .
Prior to Cardiff becoming our Capitol our great institutions were scattered through out Wales . thats why the National Library is in Aberystwyth.
We must not make the mistake that everything must be in Cardiff and we need to consider spreading our resources throughout our Nation.
