A Shot In The Dark
From 3rd August, Ceredigion
Council will be switching off street-lighting between midnight and five in the morning.
I’ll wager crime-rates will go up

News Of Wales Goes International!
wonderful to hear a place in Wales
mentioned SEVERAL times on Radio 4 News last weekend?! Mind you, I’ll bet none of those London

– no!; and did he know what things
concerned the people of Wales
– “I have advisors . . .”
that was a very long time ago.

as “A Team-Building Exercise”?
