#Wales   #devil  
A group of Christians say Wales's national flag is "demonic" and should be changed. The Welsh Christian Party claims the red dragon on the nation's standard is at odds with the country's position as a Christian nation.

Don't know which dragon I prefer - Welsh or St George's? At least they have a flag...
Would be a shame to have St David's cross instead! No religion in there just a question of tradition and recognising it first glance... +Nicola Thompson?

Sometimes actions do speak louder than words...

I find it disappointing that Ms Atkinson, as a politician representing the United Kingdom on an international stage, did not here opt for the traditionally British "two-finger" salute.

I trust that the +UK Independence Party (UKIP) will take swift corrective action to address this lapse.

Check out this nasty little insight into search habits from auto-complete.

Now I feel a bit sick...

Not completely sure but i think the likelihood is that many searches are put in because ppl are doing just that - research. And sometimes that can be about a negative subject. I often put things in google search to find things out that i may well not actually condone!

Yes it's great isn't it? This is the third paint job it's had in the last year, but this one is my favourite so far :-)

Ha thanks +Ross Remember I would love to think of myself as surreal and mysterious, though I suspect that's more in my work than me... :-D

Is there a name for that vague sense of unease you get when you check your phone and have no notifications on any of your social channels?

Haha, thank you! Those are wise words +Christian Bianchini :)

I had a whole creative crisis about the installation (which is why I haven't been in touch) but hopefully I am getting it back together again...

My regular coffee haunt. Great coffee, very friendly staff and and a relaxed vibe. Try the cinnamon buns if you get the chance.

A beautiful, relaxing and friendly place to stay - we've been back several times. It's great value, and the evening buffet meal included in the price is always delicious, good for meat eaters and vegetarians alike.

Contemporary art gallery run by Alex Sainsbury. This non-commercial gallery is pretty influential on the UK art scene. The gallery is set over 3 floors of a beautiful 18th century house. The last show i visited they were providing good quality catalogue books of the exhibition for free.

Friendly charming little garden restaurant. Food is tasty - the Turkish food unsurprisingly better than the "international" fare. It's also very good value.

A beautiful, chilled and unique place. A spectacular setting, an overgrown ancient city to explore, a glorious beach, and a friendly village with excellent value accommodation (oh and treehouses!).

An extraordinary place, not just a regular museum. Soane created the most amazing environment in his home for his own pleasure and the education of his students. Ancient, classical,and medieval objects cover every inch of the walls and ceiling in a kind of riotous disregard for conventional classification. Wandering through it is a magical experience - especially if you visit during one of the evening sessions or late winter afternoons when the place is lit by candlelight.
