Will You Be There?

St David's Day falls on a Sunday this year, so you have no excuse for not being at the annual national St David's Day parade in the Capital.

The parade starts from the National Museum at 1.00 and finishes at the steps of the Senedd. It's been sponsored by Cardiff City Council and the Assembly as well as Cambria magazine the Welsh Arts Council, Felinfoel Celtfest and more.

I wonder if there will be any representation from the Labour Party this year? It would be a first. Or are Labour AM's still of the opinion that St David is too Welsh and just a touch racist ... odd as representatives of Wales's ethnic minorities and various religions were there last year.

Oh, well, their loss. Last year's parade was a great festival of inclusive and proud Welshness - too much for the Brit Nats obviously!

Come on, join in - St David belongs to all who are proud to celebrate a positive and confident Welshness with no chips on their shoulders!
