"Britishness" Dead in the Water

Plaid condemns ‘British Day’ plan
June 5 2008 by Robin Turner, Western Mail

PLANS for a “British Day” to celebrate Britishness across the United Kingdom have been condemned as “regressive” by Plaid Cymru.

Westminster immigration minister Liam Byrne has suggested an existing bank holiday could be used.

But Plaid’s Deputy Assembly leader, Alun Ffred Jones, said: “It would be far more constructive for the Westminster Government to support Plaid Cymru’s call for a national holiday on St David’s Day – a national celebration already widely observed across the country.”
