Words of Wisdom
I can do no better this week than to quote from a report I read over the holidays. Leader of Plaid Cymru seems to be looking in the right direction, and Wales is at the very heart of her party’s philosophy.
This is cribbed directly from the report:
Leanne Wood said that she wants 2014 to be the year when “Wales says NO to mediocrity. NO to poor economic performance, NO to children failing to reach their best educational potential and NO to an inaccessible health service unable to deliver.”
“Instead,” she said, “let’s say YES to aiming to be the best. Let’s say YES to ambition. Let’s say YES to Wales co-operating with others on the European stage and let’s say YES to putting Wales first.”
That sounds good to me!
What We’re Not Told
At the risk of simply quoting from somewhere else instead of my usual rantings about the state of things in Wales, here’s an interesting link for you.
As someone who remembers the bitterness of the miners when they took industrial action, I find it peculiar that we did not hear of this meeting between Maggie Thatcher and a miner’s wife at the time . . .
It’s usually a starting point to any conversation. “What about this weather,” we say.
Well, what about it? Wales has been battered in recent days by stronger winds than usual. Rain has poured upon us.
On my travels, I’ve noticed more flooded fields than I can ever remember. We have not had a proper Winter – yet. I mean one with snow and ice. The pundits are admitting that we have “Climate Change”.
Wonder how long it will be before they admit there’s a Climate Crisis!
Until then, batten down the hatches and prepare for any emergency which might arise.
