    Certainly works a lot better. Or just 'outside of Scotland.'

    Fair play. It's a bit tortuous anyway.

    Ah, that's just English understatement. "Here's our biggest mountain area...I know, let's name it for the little dips in between the enormous lofty masses" :D

    Recall reading a lot of Irish settled in Gwynedd in sub-Roman period so maybe it's in Ireland too. Truly, a mountain for us all.

    Most times I watch the news, our lot are banging on about how bad things are here compared to England. NHS for instance. But then that's what devolution is for ain't it.

    First time I've ever heard of it being described as the highest mountain in England and Wales.

    Same way they named the counties full of dwellings that nobody can afford the "Home Counties" :hmm:

  15. It fucking is pretty bad in Wales compared to England on a poverty level... but not on a community level .

    Yep, never had issues at GP level. UHW a different story though.

    ETA: probs misunderstood you entirely there. Alas.
     
  17. No i think you got me. Last time I was in Wales was on a partly demolished housing estate (Tylors Town) in the Rhondda ... the ambulance response time was 3 hours on average.

    But everybody was loverly. (part from the NF)

    Google and Wikipedia get it right, official website doesn't.

    That's a poor show. They should know better.

    The Beeb got it wrong this am. Big reach with that sort pulling power. I pretty much screamed at the radio.

    Waters or Meres. Except for one lake as belboid said up thread
     
  22. It`s the Welsh tourist board then. I used to run the mic`s for their conferences .... I am not surprised. The last one I can remember was about getting everybody in hotels pubs etc. to dress up in traditional Welsh costume :rolleyes:

    They probably think it will increase tourism from England :D

    From what I can tell from seeing various St Davids Day events in schools, that's basically a flat cap and a Welsh rugby shirt.

    It's states clearly first that it's in Wales.

    Edit: Though I suppose they could also say
    "Snowdon, mountain in northern Wales that is the highest point in England, Wales and The Netherlands" and still be factually accurate.

    Anyway. Bright young things like Google and Wiki are right. Stupid old outmoded Encylopaedia Britannica, BBC and Welsh Tourist Board all wrong.
