The Extreme Right-Wing Attacks!

     The trouble with politicians is that many (? most ?) of them are seekers of power.   Forgive me being cynical.

UKIP has set its sights on our land.   And the matter of how to conquer the People of Wales will be debated at their Spring Conference.   It’ll be held in Llandudno.

Their policy plan at the moment says they’ll sack half the NHS Senior Managers and bring back the elitist Grammar-school system.   I wonder if the proposed Grammar-schools will be freely open to everyone – or just for those who can pay high fees?

Be ye not deceived.

More Politicians Discover Wales

     If it’s not bad enough having a whole lot of UKIP members treading good Welsh soil, our beloved Wasteminster Prime Minister is targeting Wales for some special EU membership propaganda.   I’m sure he’ll be telling us how right (forgive the unintentional pun) he is in what he’s doing within the EU.

He’s quoted as saying:  “Wales will be better off because businesses will continue to have full access to the free trade single market.”   That’s if we stop in the EU when he gives us a referendum on membership come the Summer.

I for one will be voting to stay in.   But that isn’t to please the notions of Mr. Cameron.

And, as I’ve said so often, the Tories didn’t have a referendum when it was proposed to take us into EFTA – which became the EU – all those years ago.   Why are they doing so now?   And why is his mission restricted to just SOUTH Wales?

And Now – The Good News!

     Those of you who know the current route through Newtown, Powys, and realise what a rotten bottleneck it is will be pleased to know that the town is to have a fifty-three-million pounds bypass built.

The bottleneck has been a real pain in the neck for many years.   There are five sets of traffic-lights along the short stretch of road through the town centre, which doesn’t help the flow of traffic.

I understand that the work will start next month . . . but nobody’s saying when it’ll be finished.   Nevertheless, it’s something to look forward to!

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.
