Accidentally On Purpose?
If you’re a Welsh-speaker, you’ll know that the Welsh version translated into English says “Free Erections”!
I wonder – in my cynical mind – if this was done purposely to advertise the fact that a new Tesco store has opened in Aberystwyth . . . ?
A Real Golden Handshake!
If you or I quit our jobs, it’s usually seen as us acting daft, or having found a new post. And we wander off hoping we’ve enough cash to see us till we find work and get the first wage-packed therefrom.
But, if you or I is the Chief Executive of a County Council in Wales, we can expect thousands of pounds as a “pay-off deal”.
At least that’s the way it seems from a recent report. Pembrokeshire’s Chief Executive has given up his post. So that fair county is going to pay him £330,000 for some reason.
Wonder how that works? And if anybody’s looking for a Chief Executive somewhere. I’m available for such a post!
Where Will It Go?
Soon, our land will receive TWO BILLION POUNDS from Europe to spend on investing in some of Wales’ poorer areas.
I have seen such grant money used right across Wales in the past. I trust it will be spent sensibly. So I ask local authorities – County or Community – to take a look carefully around them. They will see that we already have adequate place-name signs and pretty flower-beds.
It’s the creation of jobs that they should be involved with!
