A Healthy Sign

     A year ago, we were told that, to our shame, Wales’ A & E Departments had massive waiting times.

The good news is that patients are being seen a lot quicker now.   So we must praise our hard-working hospital staff who, under sometimes seemingly-impossible conditions, have got on with the jobs in hand and made this great step forward.

According to our Bay Watch representatives (that’s Assembly Members if you haven’t heard the description before!), the vast majority of patients receive some sort of service at A & E Departments within two hours.

So a pat on the back for our hospital staff.

A Diversity Of Choices

     A friend got in touch to tell me he has discovered that we in Wales are “spoiled for choice” – as he put it – when it comes to voting in the soon-to-be-held elections to the EU.

Our candidates range from Nazis, through militant Socialists, to ecologically concerned do-gooders.

Clearly, in an egalitarian land like Wales, the Nazis – whatever name they use to hide their real politics – will be slung out right away.   And those professing to be Socialists must prove themselves first – we all know what happened to The Labour Party . . .

So that leaves us with the ecologically concerned candidates, the well-known Big Three parties, and Plaid Cymru.

I reckon our votes should support the only party which seems to have any idea what living in Wales is really like.   A voice for Wales in Europe can’t be a bad thing.

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.
