Tom Jones fights for the check

Plans to move Burberry's production from Wales to somewhere else entirely - China, probably - is continuing to disquiet the Welsh: Tom Jones has written an impassioned letter to the Welsh Assembly calling for them to do all they can to make sure the unpleasant, overpriced brown-checked cloth continues to be manufactured in Treochy:

"As a local boy, I know how important this factory has been to the community in the Rhondda.

"I therefore urge the Burberry management to withdraw their plans to close their Treorchy factory."

It's heartfelt, of course, but some might wonder if Tom is so keen to keep Welsh treasures in the land of his fathers, he was so happy to troop off to California the moment his bank balance hit three figures.
