Connecting With Independence
A rail link is being discussed to connect Wales to Eire. If approved – and the cash can be found – it will run under the Irish Sea from Holyhead to Dublin.
Perhaps, if and when that connection is made, it will help we in Wales to nip over to what was once called “The Irish Free State” to see how they’ve coped with their independence over the decades. And perhaps the Wasteminster government may spot that and stop that railway track being laid – just in case it gives the People of Wales ideas for claiming their own independence.
I know that, when people can’t think of anything to say to each other, they start to chat about the weather. But this week’s weather in Wales really is worth mentioning!
I’ve seen a fair bit of serious flooding as I’ve travelled through our land. Yes, one can find ways round flooding on a road, even when passing through country lanes. It adds miles, but that’s nothing to the cost to farmers when their fields are so seriously flooded.
Please don’t let the pundits convince you that “we’re just passing through a normal period of weather-change – it happens every so often”. In fact, there is a Climate Crisis. And we all need to be aware of that and understand how we can stop killing our planet.
To motivate you in that awareness, can you imagine how horrid it would be to lose a beautiful land like Wales?
More Sensible Speaking
You will know that I have great regard for Leanne Wood. She’s someone who seems to have the qualities of party-leadership totally lacking in “the major political parties”. Plaid Cymru is a major political-force, and is worthy of having such a leader.
