The First Minister visits the Eisteddfod.
Are we seeing the birth of Wales’ greatest leader. In 1000 years time will Owain Glyndwr be put into shadow by Carwyn Aman Ogwr.
Carwyn Jones has a vision to make Wales “mawr” again.

Carwyn Jones laid out his plans for 1 million Welsh speakers by 2050 at a secret meeting at the Eisteddfod: “Look boy’s, there are people who say bilingualism in Wales is only about the Welsh speakers who have English as a second language. This maybe true, but if we can get 500,000 English speakers to have Welsh as a second language, we can say bilingualism is a success. We will have a group of 1 million loyal bilinguals who will be giving the promise of a public sector job, and with nationalism in their hearts vote Welsh Labour or Plaid Cymru for the next 1 thousand years!”
The Eisteddfod lay quiet, you could have heard a pin drop. Until the Arch-Druid asked: “Why not 2 million Welsh speakers?”
Carwyn, the famed orator, played to the crowd and let the silence linger before he replied: “Well, if we had 2 million then we would be a majority and we couldn’t use the minority card which has got us to where we are now. If the English in Wales become a minority they will be up in arms and demand rights!”
Great applause billowed from the congregation. Hail Carwyn let “bilingualism makes freedom” be our motto.”
