Since The Election
One would think, with all the argy-bargy in our Welsh Assembly since the Election, there’d be little room for disgusting insults.
Leanne Woods, our Plaid Cymru Leader and shiny new AM, worked well when opposing the return of Carwyn Jones as Chief Minister. She got many of Plaid’s aims and objectives to be approved by Welsh Labour. So that’s going to be a step forward for Wales.
I will repeat that sticking the word “Welsh” in front of a party’s name does not mean it isn’t controlled from the HQ of that party in England.
But what has not been at the forefront of the goings-on in Cardiff Bay is that a member of an extreme Right-wing party in our Senedd has used a terrible expression when describing two female AMs. Neil Hamilton, of UKip, called those ladies our First Minister’s concubines.
That alone, whatever party he belongs to, should have him thrown out of our Assembly and cause a fresh election in his constituency. See what you get when you vote neo-Nazi?
Free Education For All?
I was shocked to hear the news that Llanfyllin High School pupils are going to have to pay FOUR TIMES the amount they now pay for transport to school.
OK – it seems to be only those pupils who live outside the normal catchment area of the school. There are one-hundred-and-fifty of those. But, surely, the choice of school lies with the parents of the youngsters. And, if there is a sensible reason for that choice, the pupils concerned should not be penalised on some trivial pretext.
Let us strive to make good, free education available to all.
It’s a cosy, friendly radio station is our national English-language broadcaster. The programme-presenters’ warm voices help many of us to enjoy a better day.
Yet its listening figures have slipped a little recently. It can’t be due to its content of programmes, nor its presenters.
The station, like me, is asking the all important question “Why?”.
