'We will hunt you down like dogs' is new slogan of Welsh Tourism Board

THE Welsh Tourism Board has launched a new campaign warning English people that if they cross the border they will be hunted down by irate locals. 

The campaign replaces last year’s ‘Find Your Epic’ with a tagline reminding the English that lockdown is continuing in Wales and if they go there for a picnic it will be their last.

A spokesman said: “Normally we’re showing off the Welsh coastline or our mountains but this year we’ve decided to highlight angry local people chasing visitors with sticks.

“Over a marvellous shot of the Brecon Beacons we’ve got a voiceover by Matthew Rhys saying that any day-trippers setting foot in this glorious principality will never see daylight again.

“He explains over the soaring soundtrack of a male voice choir that we have never forgiven you for the murder of Owain Glyndwr anyway, so any weekend breaks will be marred by brutal mob justice.”

Wayne Hayes of Bristol said: “If they don’t want visitors why not simply use footage of Port Talbot? Far more effective.”
