Cameron Tells Wales

     The current Wasteminster Prime Minister spoke in Builth Wells this week.   I don’t know who he spoke to, but I know a little of drivel he talked.

He told “us” that we know better than most the damage Labour can do to our nation.

Did he mean the support the Labour Party gave to our people when they were struggling for decent pay and conditions?   Or was it the fact that Nye Bevan, a man as Welsh as they come, was instrumental in setting up the Welfare State with special reference to the National Health Service?

Or was his speech aimed to make us forget those things . . . so that we may not notice his party selling off our people-owned National Health Service?

Beware of weasel words – and use your vote wisely.

Who Did It?

          Suddenly, it seems – for nobody saw it happening – cosmopolitan Cardiff was flyered and posters were put up telling Muslims that voting is wrong because it “violates the will of Allah”.

Those flyers and posters will cause a lot of anti-Muslim prejudice.

Yet my Muslim friends are decent, caring, non-fanatics.   And they are embarrassed by what has happened.   They regard the perpetrators as cranks, just like non-Muslims do.

But there are cranks in most religions.   Christianity is not without them.

Funny thing, religion.

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.
