Good News For Cardis!

     Some of my readers may not know that Cardis are people who come from Old Cardiganshire, now Ceredigion.   They have a certain reputation.

‘Tis said that a Cardi can buy from a Jew and sell to a Scotsman at a profit.

So the news of the 2018 national Eisteddfod must have spread like wildfire up there in Ceredigion, and warmed many a Welsh heart.   For the news is that, when the Eisteddfod is held in Cardiff Bay, admission with be free!

But hang on a minute!   Surely that news won’t increase the number of Cardis travelling to Cardiff Bay just for the Eisteddfod.   To do so would involve travelling expenses, and cash is more important than culture . . .

Port Talbot

     I find the lack of reported news about the goings-on over the steelworks in that splendid town is more disturbing than the announcement of its closure.

We – the People of Wales – need to know, on a day to day basis, just what’s happening there.   And the families who are worrying about their future need to know that even more so!

Come on, Wasteminster, let’s have some open reporting.

Faster, Faster!

     The speed limits on Welsh motorways are to be increased from 70 mph to 80 mph.

Well, that’s the Tory plan if they ever get chance to implement it.

They claim that the extra 10 mph will make Wales a more prosperous place, because we’ll be able to move goods around quicker.

They make no mention of extra accidents . . .

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.
