    I've a mate involved in the campaign who says they now suspect the Rapport plan all along has been to force the existing businesses out and get in higher paying tenants or convert to luxury dwellings 'in an historic conservation area'. At this point the buildings are probably safe, the Gwdihŵ and the two restaurants in deep trouble.

    Whilst on the face of it this appears to be good news, I wouldn't put it past the Rapport family to wait until the furore has died down and then resubmit demolition application especially likely to be granted by a complicit council especially if the buildings are allowed to get into a dangerous state of disrepair.

    Yes, this has only happened because of the determination of the squatters. The pressure has to remain on Rapport.

    Can any Welsh speakers say this sentence?

    ydy dy dei du di yn dy dŷ di neu yn dŷ dy dad di?

    It's just a tongue twister, no? I've minimal Welsh but it's the repetition not the language per se that's tricky.

    I know nothing about Cardiff but a friend is after restaurant recommendations for an anniversary meal - any spring to mind?

    What sort of food do they like? Veggie? Indian? Posh? ....

    "fairly nice but not break the bank nice", I doubt they want anything too daring - just nice food in a nice place

    Food » The Potted Pig has been pretty good whenever I've been
    bullysrestaurant.co.uk is good, but I'd personally like bigger portions
    Cardiff – The Clink Charity is suposed to be excelent, but I've not been and don't like the idea of staff doing it for free
    Asador 44 | Spanish Asador Restaurant Cardiff was a very good Spanish one when I last visited.

    I'm veggie these days, so am generally a bit disapoint when I go out to dinner. I can normally do better at home at a fraction of the cost, but if they like meat their choices are substantially better.


    There's loads of small Turkish and middle eastern ones popping up...

    Troy Meze Bar – Meze Bar & Grill Cardiff and Lebanese Grill House, City Road, Home Delivery, Order Online | Lilo Grill House spring to mind

    That Spanish place looks amazing! We'll probably do Cardiff again for New Year this year in our campervan - Barry Island NYD swim, fireworks on NYE, cycling around the bay and swimming in the International Pool. Lovely.
