THE DESOLATE YEAR (Revisited)

Now that the first, at least I think it’s the first, successful law suit against Monsanto has concluded, and rather satisfactorily, I may add, I was thinking about how many people, actually know anything about this company – other than

LAND OF MY FATHERS

I often think, in quieter moments, how this generation will be judged by history. Particularly when a person only has to take a look around their own streets, and at their own neighborhood’s, let alone look at their country as

THIS OLD HOUSE

It has been noted that the Outlaw has not been updated with any new posts for a while, so with that in mind, I have taken some time out to reassure the regular visitors and readers here that there is

WAYNE AND KODA

On the 1st of February 2016, ex-soldier Wayne Dixon and his dog Koda set off from the Lancashire coast with the express aim of walking the entire coastline of Britain. He will be travelling on foot the entire distance, and

FY MAMWLAD

A true patriot should never feel ashamed to display their nation’s flag. For me, Y Ddraig Goch is an image that can be seen anywhere in the world where the Welsh have settled, and as a Welshman first and foremost,

DROP DEAD RED

Unless you happen to live in, or visit Scotland, Wales, parts of Ireland or the Isle of Wight, it is highly improbable that you would even catch a glimpse of a creature that has been a resident of the United

RETURN TO BRYN ESTYN

In 2013, an article was published on this site which contained a photograph, which appears to have been the source of much consternation and debate among a group of well-documented Twitter and Facebook ‘Trolls‘ as to it’s provenance. Three of

HERE’S TO THE EDUCATORS

“On the 24th January 1965, Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill died. As the British Mainstream Media and establishment-funded ie: ‘Tame’ historians, still appear to be reluctant to publish and promote anything other than a pre-scripted, sanitised, and altogether inaccurate depiction – on

AND SHE LAUGHED NO MORE

As a Welshman who sees himself as a patriot, and somebody who is fearlessly proud of his heritage, I would consider myself a traitor to not only my ancestors, but to everything I hold dear – if I did not

OUTLAW HEROES #9

The ninth in a series of real-life Outlaw heroes ‘Peerless’ Jim Driscoll (1880-1925) is still regarded as the finest proponent of the classical, upright boxing style, and a fighter who is almost always included in lists of the greatest fighters

GORDON WHO?

There are more than a few people who are going to be very nervous now, as news of a man, who’s name has been rumoured for more than thirty years to have been associated with child abuse in north Wales,

SCALLYWAG REVISITED….

I published a copy of a letter on this site in December 2012. The letter was written by Simon Regan Editor of Scallywag Magazine, who’s half Brother Angus James Wilson, co-founder of Scallywag and editor of its sucessor ‘Spiked‘ died

HOW MANY REALLY KNEW?….

This morning, my attention was drawn to a short Twitter exchange that appeared on my timeline. The Conservative ex-Junior Health Minister, Edwina Currie, was asked a question which referred, (I assume) to the recent revelations that it may soon become

GLAMORGAN FARM SCHOOL

The Glamorgan (or Glamorganshire) Reformatory for Boys was established in 1858 in premises at Hawdref Ganol, a few miles to the west of Neath. The site eventually proved to be too wild and inaccessible so more convenient premises were found

TO THE TOP OF THE WORLD

What links the conquest of Mount Everest and the small town of Llangollen in north Wales? A faded entry from 1957 in the visitor’s book of the Chainbridge Hotel unlocks an amazing story in this, the 60th anniversary of the

WHAT WILL IT TAKE?

While you all sit and salivate with anticipation for the next aged ‘celebrity’ or establishment child abuser to be named in the media, be under no illusions that child abuse has suddenly stopped happening. Because I assure you it has

THE LLYWEL STONE….

On any given afternoon in the British Museum, tourists walk casually by some of the greatest collections of artifacts from the ancient world. As people pose by the more famous exhibits, there stands, in the Medieval Gallery, possibly the most

IS NATIONALISM STILL OK?….

HAPPY ST DAVID DAVID’S DAY Y DRAIG GOCH

‘ENEMY ALIENS’

In May 1939, Mussolini signed a Military pact with Hitler, but when Hitler annexed Poland in September, and all-out war broke out in Central Europe, Italy however remained, ‘non belligerent’ a better term, Mussolini thought than the rather weak ‘neutral.’
