Dipshits like the Sheffield man who decided now was the perfect time to go and visit Snowdonia, and wound up being essentially detained by the fed up locals. Read More >>

Wales Considers All the New Types of Vehicle Driving Taxes

The Welsh government could be about to tear up the rules covering vehicle taxation in the country, with a forthcoming consultation set to investigate if increased use of toll roads, workplace parking fees and even a possible pay-per-mile panacea could solve the problem of getting people to calm down on taking the SUV for a 0.6 mile trip to the shop.

Wales Tries to Price-Away Super Strength Supermarket Ciders

Wales has joined Scotland today in introducing a per-unit alcohol price policy, requiring all booze sold to cost a bare minimum of 50p per unit, and therefore making it slightly less convenient and costlier for youths and sports fans to stock up on crates of the cheap stuff and bottles of cider modelled on grain silos.

Welsh Language Folk Banger Tops UK iTunes Chart

We have a Welsh name and song title in the clipboard of this computer, as thanks to one of those viral efforts that doesn't usually work the UK iTunes chart is currently topped by Dafydd Iwan ac Ar Log - Yma O Hyd.

A group of scientists led by Sir David Attenborough is asking the Welsh government to specifically outlaw the teaching of creationism across all schools, amid concerns that a forthcoming tweak to the national curriculum may allow religious-leaning learning establishments to gloss over science and have children growing up thinking it's God that develops all the apps and games.

Welsh Council’s Anti-Sex Toilet Declared a Mistake

The bizarre plan to take toilet sex off the menu from a holiday in Porthcawl is over, as the town council has said that a scheme to install onerous security measures within a new public toilet building were somehow attached to the planning documentation in error. The toilets will be normal toilets and you will be able to spend longer than usual in a cubicle with a German motorcycle tourist should you arrange to do so via a mobile phone app. Read More >>
