Prior Warning

     If you use the M4 at all, especially at night, be warned that the Brynglas tunnels at Newport are going to be closed all night until – hopefully – early next year!

Yes, it’s going to cause a few problems, even though there’ll be clear diversions indicated.

But I’ll bet that very few drivers will have the common sense to set out a little bit earlier on their journeys when the closures start.   It’s the same the whole world over!

Perhaps we should all make a note of what’s happening and be prepared.   Or am I a voice in the wilderness?

On And On And On . . .

     Well, so it seems.

It’s the negotiations about the future of steel-production in Wales I mean.   And meanwhile, steel-workers have the continual nagging in their minds about whether or not their jobs are safe.

It is unfair on our people for the rich owners who control our steel-industry to put such worries into their heads.   Their whole families are affected by this shenanigans.

Maybe the Unions should start demanding more information.

Broadband – What Broadband?

     We have Assembly assurances that Wales is leading the way when it comes to supplying decent broadband connections to all our people, wherever they live.

In the 21st Century, those connections have become an important part of everyone’s lives.   No – it’s not just for boring people to post drivel on Facebook.   It’s for bright people to use the facility for research and/or for promoting their businesses.

There’s an Assembly Government “scheme” to give people access to fast, fibre broadband.   Unfortunately, it’s not listed who those people will be.   And most of Wales’ rural areas are broadband free now – and most of Wales consists of rural areas!

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.
