Braveheart, bach

Welsh lock Alun Wyn Jones is reportedly supporting a campaign to establish a national heritage centre for Owain Glyndŵr (or "Owen Glendower" as good old Will Shakespeare used to call him) to celebrate Glyndŵr’s revolt against Henry IV in 1400.

“Every nation has its heroes and I hope that North and South Wales will work together to raise the massive target sum of £4.5m to celebrate the life of Owain Glyndŵr,” says Alun's Mum (her little boy being in bed with a bout of tonsillitis).

“I can’t understand why there isn’t a national centre for Glyndŵr to tell his story, like there is in Scotland for William Wallace and Robert the Bruce,” adds Wyn Thomas, secretary to the Glyndŵr Centre development committee.

It strikes me that the answer is simple - get Mel Gibson to work on his Welsh accent and produce another wholly inaccurate movie version of an uprising against the despicable English, isn't it?
