Snub to England?

Is it 'cos we is Welsh? British embassies abroad are more than twice as likely to celebrate St David's Day as they are to mark England's national day.

The Foreign Secretary, David Miliband, says 13 British embassies held events to mark the Welsh patron saint this year.

Only five embassies held events to mark St George's Day, seven marked St Andrew's Day, and four celebrated St Patrick's Day.

Mr Miliband released the figures in written parliamentary answers to the Plaid Cymru MP Adam Price. They were possibly not what Mr Price was expecting.

A snub to England or a slap in the face?
