Myth Busting in Conference

Why have a number of Unionist politicians sought to smear Plaid Cymru with the gibe of being fascist, without so much as a shred of evidence?  And how have they got away with it for so long?

This was the theme of a well-attended fringe meeting at this year’s annual conference in Aberystwyth addressed by the political historian Professor Richard Wyn Jones.  During the year, Professor Jones published the first ever detailed analysis of these accusations, which have surfaced from time to time over the last seven decades.  The meeting, chaired by Professor Daniel Williams, was jointly sponsored by Cangen Aberystwyth and the Plaid Cymru History Society.

The book, at present available in Welsh only, is a ‘must’ for all nationalists.  It forensically and conclusively debunks a lie systematically put about for decades by less scrupulous anti-Welsh politicians.
