Great Welshmen

My attention has been drawn to the Cardiff University Magazine for Spring 2007 and an interesting article on the economic role of universities by Mark Alexander. The article starts with the words: "The great Welshman and British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli said universities should be places of light".

A quick check on google confirms that the great man was born on 21 December 1804 in London, England and remained throughout his life very English. Oops! More light needed perhaps.
don't want to sound too much of a big head. I already knew that!! Actually Disraeli was Jewish too!
