The Guardians of the Nation
Who are the true guardians of the nation? Are they to be found in the British "New" Labour Party? Are they to be found in the British Liberal Democrat Party? Are they to be found in the British Conservative Party? Possibly a handful of lone stalwarts, let us concede. But no, the true guardians of the nation are the staunch nationalists who speak for the People of Wales, and have their interests at heart. They are the people intent upon preserving the communities and ensuring that these Welsh communities receive the local community services, hospitals, dental services, schools, police and postal services at their place of origin, within acceptable distance from the place of residence. Nationalists, not unionists, have the interests of the people at heart and they can always be guaranteed to keep faith with the people, of whatever ethnicity or creed or colour. They may belong to Plaid or they may not, but they are the true guardians of the heritage and the defenders of the nation.
