Here We Go Again!
Looks like there’s squabbling still going on as the big-boys strive to buy Port Talbot steelworks. Potential buyers come and potential buyers go – at least that’s how it seems to most of us.
The latest offerer says that it cannot take on Tata’s pensions liabilities. Looks to me – a complete outsider in such deals – that the people who work at the plant may not get their expected pensions, then.
Nothing is decided – nor is anything straightforward
And it’s people’s lives the big-boys are dealing with here.
A Quiet Protest
I hardly noticed the reporting of a strike which is going on. I suppose the Junior Doctors have overshadowed it.
The members of the Public & Commercial Services Union – no, I’d never heard of it, either – are “taking indefinite action” because, for working at weekends in our Welsh museums, they are not going to be paid!
This dispute has been going on for a couple of years – and I don’t think even the Welsh media have mentioned it before. The bosses – the National Museum of Wales – say they haven’t got the money to pay the Union members for all the work they do.
Next Week Is Important!
Important because we’re about to have an election. It will be to elect our Assembly Members. And, though the politicians in London seem to have managed to deter many of us from voting, let us show ‘em!
Let us just get out there and vote!!!
That will show our London masters that The People Of Wales are perfectly capable of making our own decisions.
And it would be great if we elected AMs who are rooted in Wales – and whose party has its headquarters in Wales. And there’s only one party which fits that bill.
