Opinion: Proud legacy of a Welsh genius

Apart from the fact that we are, according to columnist Julie Burchill, the Sexiest Nation in Europe, not much makes me proud to be Welsh these days. Until that is I came across a music video and two books. The video was shown on MTV and was of Newport's very own ghetto-fabulous Goldie Lookin' Chain singing their marvellous mickey-take on NWA et al called Guns Don't Kill People, Rappers Do. Respect, you Mam's boys!
