Why Wales is suddenly cool

"Suddenly, all things Welsh are hip," anonounces Hugo Rifkind in The Thunder.

Peter Gill's contribution is:

Wales has “always had a gift for a certain kind of country & western vulgarity.” The greatest Welsh film never made, he adds, was one starring the young Shirley Bassey and the young Tom Jones.


In the Welsh Assembly, it is business as usual, but they're recreating in the toilets what the Senedd is doing to the country.

PS More Welsh news just in from Chris:

A man posing as Darth Vader attacked a Star Wars fan, who had founded a Jedi Church, a court has heard.

Arwel Wynne Hughes, 27, from Holyhead, Anglesey, admitted assaulting Barney Jones and cousin Michael with a metal crutch. They suffered minor injuries.

Hughes, who was drunk and dressed in a black bin bag ......

PPS What a fine subject Wales is for St George's day.

Wales has always been cool - it's just the twp Saes - like for example my husband who've never realised.
