Have we forgotten the Welsh?

Given all their noisy agitation over Brexit, it’s not surprising the Scottish nationalists and those worried about the border in Northern Ireland get most of the media’s attention. But what about the Welsh, who did vote for change? Given it was their national day yesterday, I thought it was worth drawing attention to some of the issues facing the part of the nation which did, in fact, vote for change.

And yet, despite the desperate state of their economy, Wales gets neither attention nor a fair share of the funding. As it falls further behind the rest of the nation, and with the possibility of Brexit ahead, perhaps it’s time we took a harder look at the travails of a country that isn’t even included on the Union Jack (though if we could ignore their six nations performance that would be ideal).
