Welsh apologists

Liverpool Council has apologised to Welsh nationalists for flooding a north Wales valley in 1965 to supply it's water. Why? Should Liverpudlians have been denied a reliable water supply?

Owen Roberts, a historian at Aberystwyth University, even wants Liverpool Council to apologise for flooding Llanwddyn in north Powys in the 1880s!

Maybe Manchester should apologise to someone for flooding Wythborn in the Lake District to secure it's water supply in 1879.

Will they apologise to the rest of us for flooding the country with scousers?

I reckon the Welsh should apologise!

Why?

Being Welsh, I suppose!
