Open Letter to Cadw:
Re: your exhibition about the cartoon Princes of Gwynedd, located in a public lavatory just off the A55
How is it possible for an organisation charged with the preservation of a nation’s heritage to then treat it with such disrespect? As a patriotic Welshman with a developed interest in my nation’s history and culture, I am revolted and the frankly bizarre decision to place an exhibition about the Princes of Gwynedd in …. a public lavatory! You have made our history, culture and indeed our nation itself into a laughing stock throughout the world. Browse the Internet and discover how people are reacting!
Your decision at Abergwyngregyn (to use the post-conquest name) is incomprehensible – at the least level as a waste of public money – and has made me deeply ashamed and angry. Please consider my long-standing life membership of your organisation void and terminated.
I hope one day soon that those responsible for this tasteless travesty and poorly produced vulgar farce will be made publicly accountable. Your badly produced, childish and ill-sited garbled cartoons have insulted Welsh people everywhere and devalued a proud heritage.
