Summertime At Last!

     It’ll be a short burst this week, readers!   Suddenly, the sun is shining and the weather is WARM!   So that means most of us will be busier than usual:  wandering into the beautiful countryside of Wales, ensuring visitors are well cared-for . . . oh . . . and some of us will be off to proper jobs!

Already, though, the true character of the Welsh has emerged.   Gloomily, a lot of people are saying “Oooh, we shall suffer for this!”

Then enjoy it while it lasts, you miseries.

A Right Royal Show

     Mr. & Mrs. Charles Windsor – who insist on calling themselves by posh titles – will be visiting The Royal Welsh Show in a couple of weeks.   Obviously, those posh titles are used to show how superior they are to us plebs.

And I wonder:  does using those titles get ‘em into the Show for free?

If so, I shall call myself The Caliph of Cardiff or something and go round being cheered and getting into places for nothing.

The Most Dangerous Place.

     Looks like Powys is preparing to cut its mobile-library services.

That most dangerous place – in any area – to which I refer is the free lending-library.   Dangerous because people may read serious books and get real ideas on how the world should be run.

And we can’t have The Proles getting above themselves, can we?   They’ll end up demanding democracy.

Perhaps, then, as fewer people seem to be using the current Powys services, we – as a nation – should be encouraging our people to read widely.   And we should be doing that in our schools.

Let the people of Wales gain ideas and ideals, say I.

About Archie Lowe

Though not born in Wales, I have lived and worked here for some years now. I love the place and love that mercurial thing "Welshness". I have been accused of being "a Taffophile" - which is pretty near the truth. The question I ask whenever some idea comes up for the whole of the UK is: "What's in it for Wales". I believe in an independent Wales and am so pleased that our Assembly is a big step on that road.
