More Of The Same

     Well, my comments last weekend about the real Summer weather continue this weekend.   What superb weather Wales is having – and it’s set to last.

Temperatures are reaching all-time highs.   And the Celtic character is still coming out in “Oooh, we shall suffer for this” comments.

As I wander around Wales, the immense beauty of our mainly-rural land strikes me, and I am massively moved by the green, green grass of my homeland.   And the heavy leafed trees, too.

Visitors are seeing our land at its very best, and we must ensure that we direct them to the beautiful places which visitors rarely see.

I feel that our Summers and the joy they bring are a reward for enduring what is, quite often, dreary Winters.

I truly love our country.

Democracy

     It was the current Prime-Minister of the Wasteminster government who said he was all for groups of people running their own affairs.   But he didn’t say to what extent.

Plaid Cymru candidates for the next General Election are letting us know that they want to “change the relationship” between Wales and our Eastern neighbour.   Rightly so, of course.   We in Wales are surely clever enough to run our own affairs – and make our own laws which suit our own people.

Yet anti-self-government people are emphasising the incorrect information that The Republic of Ireland is in deep financial trouble due to the world-wide Slump.

In fact, Ireland got itself on the road to recovery very quickly after a dip in its financial wellbeing.

Further, any mistakes that are made in the governing of Ireland are the mistakes of the Irish people.

So let us tell the Wasteminster government that we, too, would like the same sort of autonomy.   Then, if Wales gets into difficulties, it will have been caused by the people of Wales, and those difficulties will be overcome by the people of Wales.

And, by the way, I wish Plaid Cymru every success in the campaign it is running up there in Sir Fon.

About Archie Lowe

Though not born in Wales, I have lived and worked here for many 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.
