I believe that the example of Trawsfynydd shows that opposing the current wave of threatening in-migration (as opposed to the natural in-migration of the past) is not a matter of being anti-incomers or of being hostile to variety.
And if it is not possible to provide lessons, "Welsh welcome" evenings, culture classes, translation equipment and so on for those incomers who wish to take part in the activities of the community, then we need to take serious look at the credibility of our politicians.
