Watch: Michael Sheen delivers one of the greatest Welsh rallying calls ever

Most people freely acknowledge that when/if Wales gains independence that Michael Sheen will be immediately installed as leader.

Of course, we say that with tongue planted firmly in cheek, but then who would deny such a patriotic Welshman who has always flown the Welsh flag on a global stage.

If you were watching this week’s episode of Sky Sports’ sports comedy quiz A League Of Their Own you would certainly ascribe to the view that the actor, campaigner and all-round Welsh icon should most definitely be the man to front an indepenenedent Wales.

When asked to recite a stirring speech for Robert Page’s Wales ahead of their World Cup clash with England, Sheen produces what could only be described as one of the most rousing, stirring, spine-tingling rallying cries in the history of brilliant speeches.

When he finishes he receives a standing ovation from a wildly cheering audience, while host Romesh Ranganathan proclaims: “Wow. I have never felt more Welsh!”

If Robert Page doesn’t play this before Wales take the field against England in the World Cup, somebody needs to have a word.

Sound up. Headphones on. Enjoy!

Actor Michael Sheen, besides having a social conscience, also understands the democratic deficit Wales suffers still. In 2017 he returned his 2009 OBE awarded to attend and give a lecture on Welsh Culture & Identity at the Raymond Williams Society. He said in a video interview to journalist Owen Jones that he did it after researching and learning about the real truth about the history & abuse Wales received at the hands of the English Monarchy.

It’s not difficult to see why Michael Sheen is one of the two most popular and loved men in Wales. A toss-up between him and Gareth Bale, surely?
