False Advertising

     The British Nazi Party is using the name of the murdered soldier, Lee Rigby, in its publicity for the coming European election.   We know that Lee’s death is a terrible thing, and that the reason for it was fanaticism.

But to use his name to grab votes is despicable.

The British Nazis have said, though, that it will only be done in Wales.

That’s alright, then.   But why only in our land?

Restoring The Ecological Balance?

     It seems that recent action by thieves has had an effect on the restoration of “the good old days” to Wales.   During the course of their thieving ways, the crooks managed to release a bunch of wild boars into the wilds!

Of course, at one time such creatures roamed the hills and valleys of our land and were hunted for their flesh by rich and poor alike.   That hunting wiped them out in the end, and one only finds them is zoos and the like now.

Well, until the past week, of course.

Maybe tourists this year will be offered a special treat when they visit our Welsh restaurants:  wild-boar steaks just like Twm Sion Catti used to eat!   A great attraction, I reckon.

More False Advertising

     Every time I visit Pembrokeshire, I find that somebody is advertising such interesting places in that county such as . . . Aberystwyth!

Now even I – an immigrant to this land – knows that Aberystwyth is in Ceredigion – that’s Old Cardiganshire to those of us who’ve lived here a long time.   So how can we educate our advertisers in the geography of Wales?   I suspect that our schools lack good geography-teachers . . .

      And could such territorial claims lead to inter-county warfare?

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.
