BE the Change
Be the change that Wales/Scotland/England/Cornwall/Ireland need....... do not succumb to the weight of imperial history and fossilised thought. Let us widen our outlook to envisage a new dimension in politics and democracy, not rooted in the past but free to fashion a vibrant society based on universal human values and shared aspiration. Let us view ourselves as a nation among nations in a European setting along with equal co-partners in a shared view of political, social and economic co-operation and co-existence. Let us sweep away the vestiges of former stultified convention and ritualistic pomp. Let a wind of change once more blow through the rickety constitutional structures which defined this state of nations and look to the living cultures and traditions to the north and west to redeem, reclaim and restore the dignity of the individual and the justice of society.
