Between Eisteddfod preparations, we are currently working hard on a
second edition of the Cymuned magazine, following a very good
reception to the first edition last month. Those of you who are
not members are able to subscribe or buy individual copies at
www.eingwlad.com. If you have articles, letters or any other
material that you think may be of interest to our readership, then
by all means drop us a line.

Thanks to Omer for telling us about a strange contribution made at
one of the All Wales Convention meetings recently. A gentleman
apparently explained to the people there that as they had been
born in Wales, they were all English anyway. Those attending the
meeting seemed to disagree, and the Man with the Strange Ideas left
shaking his head and sighing "Oh, what's the point"... It is
unbelievable that such an attitude still exists in Britain, (let
alone Wales) but it does show how easy it must be for some to move
to the country knowing nothing about our Welshness, or even that it
exists.

Thank you also to Siams who drew our attention to an article in the
Sunday Times in which Daisy Waugh trundles out the tired old
clichés as she talks of a property in Wales, and asks, ""What's
actually wrong with (Wales)? Apart from the unpronounceable road
signs, ... the rainfall ...and the slightly irritating devotion to
a language only kept alive by government edict and European
subsidies ... it's just the same as anywhere else in Britain, isn't
it?"

But wait, before we complain about too much about a columnist who's
just trying to get a reaction, consider this: "There's not much
we're allowed to snigger at in polite company ... yet somehow fat
people and the whole of Wales slipped through the sensitivity net."
Ms Waugh does indeed hit on a puzzling truth here, while doing her
best to continue the tradition!

Lastly, Arfon Jones, a councilor in Wrexham, has asked us to
publicise a petition on the Assembly's website to class MPs as
public bodies under the Welsh Language Act 1993, following the
refusal of Ian Lucas MP to use Welsh in his annual report. Follow
this link, though you will have to register or sign in with the
assembly system.

Until next month!

 Random Information. 
 For many Cornish people and Cornwall, the Duchy, as shown by the Officers of the Duchy of Cornwall in 1855 in its dispute with the Crown over the ownership of the Cornish Foreshore, has quite a different significance, based on the original Acts and Charters of its creation. Cornwall itself in this framework is described, de jure, as a Duchy (as opposed to an ordinary county), and the Duchy estates are distinguished from the Duchy itself, having themselves been annexed and united to "the aforesaid Duchy". The Duke of Cornwall may even be described as Cornwall's head of state.
