Wildlife Invasion

     Those of an ecological nature – usually heavily bearded, even the ladies – will rejoice in the fact that Wales has been injected with an invasion of one-time foreign wild animals.

     It seems that they’ve chosen North Wales mainly in their current colonisation.   I’m sure there’ll be “welcome marches” put on by those claiming to have a “green” outlook.   And green is certainly the word to describe the people who I hear saying that “it’s all a part of Mother Earth’s plan” or something equally silly.

For this is an invasion of super-rats, and they’ll be able to spread all sorts of diseases in our land because they are totally immune to the current poisons used to curb their spread.

So, while scientists try to find a chemical cure for this influx, perhaps setting old-fashioned traps and killing (humanely) the rodents which we catch?    Or is that too simple a solution?

A Question Of Health

     It’s being publicised everywhere that three of our NHS health-boards have overspent by millions.

     It’s strange how, when “we” want to buy warplanes or any material for wars, there is money in the magic-pot.   We see – and hear – the RAF zooming about our Welsh skies every time the sun shines.   It’s the price Wales pays for keeping England free, I’m told . . .

But there’s an important question I’d like answering:-

“Can anyone in our land ever overspend on our people’s health?”

Better Late Than Never

     Well, perhaps that’s true – in some cases.   But it seems to have taken a whole century for the God who they follow (and, presumably, worship) to let them know that they should repent.

It’s Welsh chapels I’m talking about.

This week – only a hundred years after they were encouraging our young men to go a kill Germans – the chapels have publicly apologised for doing so.   And wasn’t the commandment about not killing in force in 1914?   And didn’t that chap Jesus teach forgiveness?

Ah, well, I suppose God – or the one the chapels follow – really does move in a mysterious way . . .

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.
