Merthyr Protests The Royal Visit 2012


Kier Hardie former MP for Merthyr had written in his newspaper, the Labour Leader, that 

“the life of one Welsh miner is of greater commercial and moral value to the British nation than the whole Royal crowd put together, from the Royal Great-Grand- Mama to this puling Royal Great-Grandchild” 

(Morgan, Keir Hardie 72-3; Labour Leader, 30 June 1894). 

The current Labour Party has forgotten its Socialist Republican hero Kier Hardie, but the people of Wales have not forgotten Kier Hardie.
