More to the point: where’s where?
On Radio Wales this very morning, the newsreader informed us that “a former First Lady” had died. That really was the headline.
Thinking that, as I live in Wales, that the radio station is broadcast from Wales, and that this was the news from Wales, I wondered which former First Lady this could be.
Mrs. Lloyd-George, perhaps, or Mrs. Glyndwr . . . I mentally ran through the list of ladies who may have been called “First” here in our nation.
I think, in case you are wondering to whom the news-reader referred, that our English-language national radio-station here in Wales meant that it was a one-time American President’s wife.
There was no reference in the rest of the news that our Senedd had been successful in applying for our nation to become a State of the Union. There’s a relief!
Well done all those who worked to rescue one of those young people who got into difficulties on the Black Mountains this week.
They were up there completing their gold and silver Duke of Edinburgh Awards. I heard no mention of the Greek Scottish Duke being up there with the party. He may well have been back home in Holyrood Palace, of course. He may have sent his son, who has the title “Prince of Wales” to represent him. And I am sure the people of Scotland’s capital and the people of Wales will vote them both back into office again at the next democratic election . . .
