The #AberfanDisaster occurred #OnThisDay in 1966, when a colliery spoil tip on the hill above the village slipped, engulfing the local school & other nearby buildings. A total of 144 people (116 children & 28 adults) were killed in this dreadful, heartbreaking tragedy. #Aberfan https://t.co/DL3T9zElA1

Since @Independent seems confused: WALES IS NOT A PRINCIPALITY “The Principality of Wales” existed from 1216 till 1536, and (at its height) comprised of a mere ⅔ of modern Wales. It’s 2020. Wales is a country. I wrote this in 2014. Still stands 👇 https://t.co/cau8Vj1dSw https://t.co/kFm2b4AQoG

If people don't understand why I do not like being called English, the attitude of this person should give you an idea. https://t.co/rli2JJB7eB

Following on from my “Slightly rewriting history” with regards to the Rayleigh-Jeans law, here is a text book on the issue. And some notes from a historian on the matter. https://t.co/qORkiWuaEe

The University of Sydney issued a statement this afternoon, regarding the police response to recent protests on campus. We are very disturbed by the footage we’ve seen of today’s events. https://t.co/PL3JbkLgx2
