THE Nato summit coming to Newport in September provides everyone "from business leaders to school children with a unique opportunity to present the very best of Wales to a global audience", said Prime Minister David Cameron in a St David's Day message.

The Prime Minister shared the sentiments of the Secretary of State for Wales, David Jones MP in his St David's Day message.

Mr Cameron said: “St David's day is a time to celebrate Wales' rich and illustrious history, its beautiful language and its cultural heritage. Yet this year, we also look forward to a time where Wales will have the opportunity to showcase its credentials on a truly international stage.

"In September, the NATO Summit will be hosted in south Wales, providing everyone - from business leaders to school children - with a unique opportunity to present the very best of Wales to a global audience.

"I hope that everyone seizes this opportunity to show Wales as a great place to live, to visit and to do business in. I’m pleased to be flying the Welsh flag over Downing Street today and I wish everyone a very happy St David’s Day - Dydd G?yl Dewi Hapus i bawb.”

Politicians spout this brain-dead junk...."Internation
al Stage, Heroes, Our Joint Heritage, Hard Working Families, The National Interest" etc. not because they believe a single word of it but as "white noise" or mood music whilst their real owners "hold you down and pick your pockets" as Orwell once put it.

Yeah like Liam Byrne did at Merchant Bankers, Rothschild. And didn't Ed Balls belong to a drinking club called 'The Steamers'? And got pictures in a nazi uniform? Totally different obviously.

I'm often bemused by your comments when you start talking like this. Seems to me that your saying that because Labour are almost as bad as the Tories, that somehow makes the Tories alright?

Yeah, I said 'almost' - Labour politicians are liars and turncoats and - well - politicians, t'is true... but the Tories are still vile human scum, whose second term in office during my lifetime, has only massively reinforced the prejudice I picked up during their first term.

Wales, a disparate region on the west edge of the UK where the whole cannot be classed as a joined up element.

Like London is little more than a doughnut of suburbs beyond the M25, what pases for 'Wa\es' in the eyes of a politician comes through as that which is bounded to the north by Merseyside, to the east Birmingham, and to the south the coastal belt, where most of the political activity is embedded.
vast areas are without any form, Just because they reside within the general border gives them little in tbe way if influence, so what Camoron is on about is rubbish.In international terms Wales is hardly able to represent itself in the UK never mind the UN.

Over with our nearest neighbour, France, until one mentions Rugby, Wales usually invokes the question
... 'where did you say you come from?' ....

...........one has to refer to Pays de Galles to even get any sort of response, and as stated, that usually falls on the game we are not too bad at.

He may have said Manchester, Liverpool or Birmingham, I am sure, thanks to the international fame of their soccer clubs they wield a greater degree of influence with the UN than a region riddled with poverty, ill health and a childish so called Assembly that only came in to being by the phony referendum , and which is a severe drain on the tax system.

Democratically elected? The Tories? I don't think so mate. If you believe that then you really are deluded. They didn't even get a majority WITH the LibDems, let alone without them. They stole the election, then proceeded to rape the whole country for the last three and a half years. They are the vilest, most despicable pond scum to ever blight our shores. And if I had the chance, I reckon I could cheerfully line each and every one of them facing a wall and shoot them in the back of the head.
