CNN, Covering The British COVID Vaccinations, Claims That The People of Cardiff, Wales, Are ‘English’!

by Anura Guruge


Well if the U.S. President, Trump, cannot distinguish between England, Wales, Scotland, N. Ireland & the U.K., I guess we shouldn’t expect CNN to get it right either. This was CNN’s ‘Brooke Baldwin’ doing today’s 1pm news.

Yes, she was very excited to get a live report from Cardiff — which happens to be the capital of Wales.

She was gushing …

She then says something along the lines of: “… the English people of Cardiff, Wales … among the first to get the vaccine …“.

Oh, dear!

English = England

Welsh = Wales

Scottish = Scotland

Irish = Boston (Smile).

This was BRILLIANT. Bravo. Made my day. I had, since 1971, always wanted to be able to say it BUT I can’t even come close.

I went and checked him, i.e., Liam Dutton, out. Quite the guy. We is Welsh — born in Cardiff (though he doesn’t have the classic Welsh look of yore — BUT this is the new, melting pot UK).

I, given that I spent three of my most formative and fun years in Wales, in Swansea, consider myself somewhat Welsh. If nothing else, as those that know appreciate, cut-to-the-chase, the underlying cadence of my (hard to understand) accent is Welsh! Fancy that.

In September 1971, when I started at Swansea University, I was given a tour and orientation by a Welsh student. All the signs were in both English and Welsh and he took delight in reading them out to us. I kind of thought it would be neat to learn some Welsh while I was there. Well that never happened. I was busy with other things. SMILE. But there was a time, after much tutoring from locals, when I could properly pronounce ‘Llanelli‘ like a native 

This is great. Thanks Liam. You are the guy.

P.S., This was not live. They prerecorded it just to be on the safe side BUT it is claimed that he nailed it on the very first take. I am so proud of him.

Iechyd da!
