A Demand For Truth
A Welsh peer has had a go at the slowness of the publication of the report into Tony Blair’s Iraqi war.
Lord Morris of Aberavon reminded us all that there are still families who lost relatives in that conflict who need to know why. He has, therefore, urged Wasteminster’s Prime Minister to allow a Parliamentary vote to force the report to be published.
The whole enquiry has been going on since 2009. I wonder what the delay’s all about . . .
Diolch, Lord Morris.
A rather attractive silver mount has been found up in the Gogledd. It shows a female figure – probably a saint – among other things. It could be some sort of posh hinge for a Bible or prayer-book.
Any of my readers up that way in the 17th Century and dropped it?
Rights Of Way
The foot- and cycle-bridge up in Barmouth is under threat. It looks as if it’s too costly to keep open.
Apart from our hard-working farmers, the only really profitable industry in Wales these days is tourism. The stroll across that bridge is a lovely one, revealing a superb part of our scenic land. I don’t know how many folk walk or cycle that path in the course of a year, but we must bear in mind that they will spend their money locally and recommend that area of our special land to goodness knows how many other people.
There is a petition to help save this excellent route, so join in, good people!
