    France is loaning the UK the Bayeux Tapestry. Would they appreciate our depiction of the Battle of Fishguard?It was on this day in 1797 that French troops landed near Fishguard in the last invasion of mainland Britain. We have our equivalent of the Bayeux tapestry in Fishguard which records the drama in glorious detail. French President Emmanuel Macron last month set off public relations fireworks with his pledge to loan the Bayeux Tapestry to the UK. It was a diplomatic masterstroke, allowing the Gallic wunderkind to appear generous and magnanimous without making any rash promises about future Brexit deals. The...

    Many in Tonypandy and Llanelli saw Churchill as someone who would use troops against workersTourists line up each day in Whitehall to enter Winston Churchill’s subterranean war rooms and Gary Oldman is a favourite to win an Oscar for his portrayal of the Prime Minister in The Darkest Hour. The Conservative leader was voted the “greatest Briton” of all time in a television poll in 2002 in which he was championed by Mo Mowlam, perhaps the most enduringly popular Labour figure of modern times. Wholehearted admiration for Churchill unites the UK – but not, perhaps, in Wales. Stories of his...

    People in England and Wales have two weeks to hand in guns, other weapons and ammunition to police stations without being punished for possession. People who surrender firearms will not automatically be charged, but will be if they are later connected to a crime. Police say many firearms are held in ignorance of their illegality. The parents of 18-year-old Yusuf Sonko, who was shot dead in Liverpool on 2 June, have called on people to hand in any firearms. Papa and Kajdijah Sonko spoke to BBC Breakfast about finding out that their son had been killed. Mr Sonko said he...

    ....."Things have recently gotten even more curious. If a news organization with the resources to go to Wales and interview Mr. Davies wanted to do so in order to get some answers, they wouldn’t find him at home. He’s in hiding.

Davies contacted his publisher, Simon & Schuster by email and informed then he was “going dark,” this past Friday morning. The message indicated that someone had threatened to harm his family if he continued to defend the truthfulness of...

The compound was overrun by a mob of Islamic extremists on the morning of September 12 in an apparent planned attack that resulted in the...
