What If . . .

    Wouldn’t it be interesting if I simply wrote “Nothing happened in Wales this week”?

    Well, I was in a part of our land this week where I simply took a stroll.   I wandered through some green-leaved woodland in Ceredigion.   It was a still day with only the sound of the birds breaking a perfect silence.

     I was alone with my thoughts.

     And the experience reminded me – had I needed such a reminder – that here in this magical land we still have many places for such solitary contemplation.   Even though it’s the start of the visitor-season.

     One can even find such places in our big cities, for such is the magic of Wales.

However . . .

     . . . there are certainly people in Wales who have not “felt” that magic.   There’s been a fair few bomb hoaxes in the South of our land.

     These hoaxes seem to be aimed at schools.   It’s GCSE time if I remember rightly, and such dangerous silliness could interfere with those exams.   Thus, our young people will be upset and worried about their futures.

    Similar hoaxes have happened in Mother England.   Which shows that evil-minded people lurk everywhere.

     South Wales Police are investigating.   I wish them success – and quick success, too!

Carwyn To The Rescue?

     In case you hadn’t heard, there’s a strike going on at the National Museum of Wales.   The dispute is all about pay.

     And, as it’s been going on so long, our Welsh Government is going to step in and see what can be done to sort things.   Our First Minister has pledged an end to the dispute.

      We shall see . . .

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.
