Awake At The Wheel

     Apart from Rugby, Rugby, Rugby all the time, there have been a few other news reports.

     Right across Wales, police forces are going to publicise the fact that it’s stupid to use one’s mobile-phone whilst driving.   Of course, they won’t use the word “stupid”.

     Last year, nearly a thousand stupid (there I go again) drivers were caught using their phones whilst driving along in their cars.   And that’s just the ones who were seen and caught!

     There was a lot of fining which went on, too.

     So let’s all stop being stupid, and advise everyone else to do the same.   Let’s make our land a safer place.

Don’t Mess With Our Government!

     Carwyn Jones is Wales’ First Minister down there in Cardiff Bay.   Bet some of my fellow-countrymen didn’t even know that!

     Anyway, he showed that he really is committed to us having our own government by warning that he will not accept any attempt to weaken the powers of our Assembly.

     Wasteminster’s Welsh Secretary claims – based on a report by “academics” (whatever and whoever they are) that any plans would give us in Wales more control over the running of our own nation.

     We shall see.

     Meanwhile, I wonder how many of my readers even know the name of the current Welsh Secretary . . .

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.
