The Campaign to ensure that the A470 is named after our greatest of Warrior Princes.

I have just checked how many names are on the 'Go Petition' and on the 'National Assembly Petition' on this issue and was astounded to find that only 20 have supported the call on the National Assembly petition whilst 70 have signed the 'Go Petition'! Does this mean that we only have 20 Welsh based patriots who gives a damn on whether this road is named after our greatest of Welsh Warrior Princes or not? Does this mean that every other Cymric patriot in Cymru is quite happy for this road to be named after a regiment who swears allegiance to the English crown? or, named Prince William's Way or some other 'daft' or totally irrelevant name - as per suggestions which have appeared in letters in the Western Mail during the last week! 

Off the top of my head, I can think of 100's if not 1000's of people in Cymru that have not, as yet, signed this petition. There may be a logical reason why they havent such as, they mean to do so but havent got around to it yet. If that is the case then, please sign the National Assembly Petition in this link  https://www.assemblywales.org/gethome/e-petitions/sign-petition.htm if you are resident in Cymru and the Go Petition in this link http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/campaign-to-name-the-a470-cymru-prif-ffordd-tywysog-ow.html   if you are a Welsh patriot living outside Cymru. The National Assembly will only let Cymric constituents sign their petitions but also remember that all residents living in Cymru can sign both petitions.

Please remember that signing this petition is very important if we are to ensure that the road is named after Tywysog Owain Glyndŵr as such would help to ensure that this great Cymric warrior is remembered, by everyone who travels on it, for generations to come.  Cymric patriots cannot be parochial in this case, an overall united Cymric front of all movements, societies, councillors, MP's and AM'S is needed NOW if we are to win this one.

Last week, David Williamson, a Western Mail Correspondent, sarcastically remarked that only 5 people had signed the petition to name the road after Prince Owain Glyndŵr, it seems he was totally unaware of the 'Go Petition' petition. Whatever, let's wipe the smirk off his face with 1000's of signatures! 

Also,  William Powell, a Lib Dem AM, plans to champion the 'royal Welsh' campaign in Cardiff Bay by the laying of a statement of opinion to seek cross-party support. Have we got Cymric Patriots AM's down there that will do the same for the Glyndŵr cause and Cymru! Let's lobby them now!

Last but not least, please sign the petitions and get all your family, friends and acquaintances to do likewise. It will take up 5 seconds of your time tops! Not much to ask considering that we probably now would not have a Cymric language and identity had it not been for the effort and sacrifices made by Owain Glyndŵr and his compatriots! So,  let's all unite and do this in honour of Glyndŵr and Cymru!
