Railways - from The Guardian

Useless train arrangements, high petrol and other motoring taxes, poor road maintenance and winter gritting and snow clearance - yes that's Britain !

Welsh Place Names - history rubbed out !

Several Welsh counties had their historical names 'reconstructed' into Welsh. My mother was proud of be born in Monmouthshire. Gwent meaningless. That's the Welsh for you 'making' Welsh out of a language regardless of the origins of place names.
