Funny Game, Politics
Well, it is if you look at the antics of the elected members of what the English think of as “their” government, i.e., Wasteminster. There is so much name-calling there presently that even the English are losing their confidence in that seat of government.
Here in Wales, we much count ourselves as fortunate for, although – yes – members of our own, genuinely Welsh government have a go at each other at times, it is done in a more polite manner. Thus the conduct of our AMs sets an example to the people of our nation.
Perhaps that’s why Welsh sports-fans are so well behaved when they visit countries abroad!
So come on, Wasteminster. If so many of you continue to behave in a shoddy way, what do you think foreign lands will make of the “United” Kingdom? Take a lesson from our AMs, please.
The Competition Hots Up
Welsh politician and Pontypridd MP, Owen Smith is to stand against Jeremy Corbyn when the Labour Party holds another election to choose a leader. Mr. Smith seems to have the backing of the Blairite rebels in the Party.
For some reason, people who have only just become members of the Party won’t be able to vote in this election. Is that democracy?
The sooner Wales gets true independence, the better we can show politicians in other lands how to behave!
