Wales For The People Of Wales

          Leanne Wood is a Party Leader who commands respect.   She’s a down-to-earth person who, it is clear, is not in politics ourt of selfish motives.

At Plaid’s Spring Conference, she’s going to push Wasteminster to give more money to our nation.   Good for you, Leanne!

Transport Matters

          The railway connection between Holyhead and Cardiff will continue for the next three years.   Good news for those who use the route for business – and, I have to say, the pleasure of passing through our lovely land.

At the same time, plans are in place to re-open a once much-used railway service between Aberystwyth and Carmarthen;  calling at places like Ystrad Meurig, Tregaron and Lampeter.   Another trip through some beautiful countryside – which would have been such an asset to our holiday-trade had the Tories not closed it in 1965.

My spies tell me, though, that the Aber – Carms line will cost about £650,000,000 to rebuild.

And what will happen to the lovely Ystwyth Trail which was created on the defunct permanent-way, and which lets walkers enjoy a quiet stroll along the edge of Cors Caron, the Tregaron Bog – an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty?

We shall see . . .

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.
