Wales’s End?

In response to:

Save the Wales? from the November 18, 1982 issue

To the Editors:

My compatriot, Professor Graham Hughes, appears to know far more about our native land, Wales, than I. But he is wrong when he says that in the sixties and seventies bombings in Wales caused “a few deaths.” A few daft boyos did set a few bombs, but nobody was ever killed. Even property damage was quite minimal. We are a gentle, God-fearing Nation; and we tend not to persecute one another except for keeping the ‘pubs closed in certain small areas on Sundays. We should not be compared with those terrible people in Northern Ireland who keep the ‘pubs closed on Sundays everywhere.
