Welcome to my new abode. Once I’ve put the curtains up and found my
percolator, it will be as comfortable as my old address.
For those of you who view my “Weekend Wales-Watch” column in a place other than at www.pulsewales.co.uk/wordpress/
, my ex-address has just been taken over by The Laughing Dragons Theatre Group, an amdram gang. Their first production last month was a
roaring success. A quick plug for them
then: they are based firmly in Mid-Wales and they’re on the look-out for people
who want to learn all the skills of theatrical performance.
Anyway, vacating my old place to that
great bunch is a pleasure. Continue in
your success, folks.
A Man Of Principle
Michael Foot’s image –created by the
Right-Wing press in the main – was that of an unmade bed. His detractors never mentioned his great
prowess as an orator. They ignored his
dedication to his Socialist principles.
Now he is being said to have “saved The
Labour Party”, by Neil Kinnock for one.
Alas, that salvation was short-lived when The New Labour Party took on
the mantle of Socialism to cover its move to the Right.
Let us not forget Michael Foot, nor any of
those people who stood up for the principles which created The Labour
Party. If we do forget, we shall never
be able to recreate that Party.
It Would Be So Easy

Denbighshire Council has spent £8,500 of
taxpayers’ money on electronic tagging of dustbins. This is to monitor how much rubbish local
people throw away.
The Council have no plans – presently – to
charge householders varying amounts of cash based on the amount of rubbish they
Perhaps the locals should insist on
fitting tags on Councillors and the Council’s office-wallahs. Then, based on how much use those people
are, a similar throw-away scheme could be introduced.
