Still Celebrating!

     Though Wales was knocked out in the semi-finals, the celebrations continue (long into the night in many cases!).

     Rightly so, of course.   We are a comparatively small nation.   Yet we have set an example to the larger one to our East:  our fans showed themselves to be fans, not racist yobbos.   That, too, is worth celebrating.

     And a major factor in all this is that the whole world now knows that Wales is a separate nation – not just as large county of England!   There are some English people who believe we are part of their country.

Political Viewpoints

          A friend of mine commented to someone in England that, whatever the outcome of the Tory Leadership pantomime, we’d end up with a female Wasteminster Prime Minister.   He emphasised the horrible things the last female Prime Minister did to the people of the “United” Kingdom.

     The Englishman replied that The Party of Wales has a female leader who would like to become Prime Minister.

     My friend immediately pointed out that Leanne Wood has only the good of Wales at heart.   Yes, it would be great to have her as our First Minister – especially in a free and independent Wales – as she is a decent, caring politician.

     The Englishman went off at a tangent, saying that it was about time England had its own parliament.   My friend heartily agreed, as most people living in England believe that the Wasteminster crew are the English government.

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.
