    There are already memorials for the battle of Hastings - ever heard of Battle Abbey? Hastings is celebrated with re-enactments. There are Roman re-enactment groups as well. And Viking, and god knows they made a mess of the place!

    And besides, this is entirely the Welsh doing it. It's not something the English have imposed. So it's like the Scottish Parliament voting to erect a statue of a hairy Scottish buttock with an English arrow stuck in it at Falkirk, if that's how you want to see it.
    The crowd: "Yes! We are all individuals!"
    Lone voice: "I'm not."

    Didn't think it was but I bet plaid cymru are having a quiet laugh to themselves. The snp success is due as much to the incompetence and arrogance of the labour party when jim murphy took over yopu juast knew they werew doomed.

    Yeah, that's probably true. But re Plaid Cymru, Wales turned out to be strongly brexit which actually ties them closer to England. I never expected Wales to end up the home of UKIP! So there is a counter force, if you like. Lord knows what's going to happen in Northern Ireland. I just know we are still too close to the Troubles for comfort, on top of the current issues with Stormont. Scotland - well, brexit weakens the ties further. It would not surprise me to see the end of the Anglo-Scottish Union in the next decade.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.
