Political Struggles

     Looks like our shiny new Assembly Government is still – at the time of writing – can’t agree on who’s to be Wales’ First Minister.

     My spies tell me that Plaid Cymru and Welsh Labour AMs will be meeting to do a spot of arm-wrestling to decide what they should do with the situation.   The outcome will be interesting in the light of some of the comments made during the electioneering period.

     And, while on the subject, why has the British media papered over the fact that Plaid Cymru did so well in the election?   Could it be that our English overlords do not want to acknowledge that more and more of the The People of Wales are tending to think we should run our own affairs – without “foreign” interference?

Putting The Record Straight

     I believe, along with many people, that Dylan Thomas was one of the finest writers of the 20th Century.   His poetry alone is something of which Wales should be proud.

     Now, it seems, there’s evidence that he was not a boozy woman-chaser after all.

     Written evidence has been found to show that he was a rather shy man, who remained sober and respected women.   Which just goes to show that the media of his day “got it wrong” to please an unsuspecting audience by feeding it sleaze.

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.
