Abstract

In 1979, the Welsh people rejected devolution in a referendum held, somewhat ironically, on St. David's Day, the Welsh equivalent of St. Patrick's Day. The depth of the rejection of devolution – 80% of those who participated voted 'no' – shook the section of Welsh society that had actively campaigned for cultural protection, Home Rule and independence within Britain.
