Fascists! Fascists? – Plaid and the charges of extremism


The IWA hosted a fascinating discussion this week on Welsh political history to round off the series of essays we have been running on this site responding to Richard Wyn Jones’ book on ‘Welsh Nationalism and the Accusation of Fascism’.

Former First Minister Rhodri Morgan, Robert Stradling (the leading historian on Wales & the Spanish Civil War), and cultural critic Jasmine Donahaye debated historic claims that Plaid Cymru’s founders flirted with fascism with the book author, Richard Wyn Jones.

The series of essays will be completed by a response from Richard on Click on Wales shortly, but in the meantime you can listen to the discussion on our Audioboom site, or in three parts below
