There’s a move to close Swansea Museum. If that happens, it will be a great loss. We all need reminding of our past so that we can understand our present and plan for our future.
However, I heard that the staff there have discovered a long-lost painting hidden away somewhere. I have neither seen nor heard anything about who hid it, nor why no record of its existence was kept.
And the piece of art has turned out to be worth a LOT of money!
So that might be a good reason to keep Swansea Museum open. If an important work like that has been stored therein, somebody must rate the place highly.
More Monetary Matters
It came as a surprise to me that The Party Of Wales received a massive donation from an Eastern gentleman – was it Gadaffi? – a few decades ago.
It seems, though, that nobody in Plaid Cymru remembers that gift coming into the coffers. The amount was rather large, too: seventy-five-thousand pounds or so I hear!
Two questions spring to mind. Firstly: why should that particular gentleman be disposed to help the cause of Plaid? And secondly: where are the records of his cheque being cashed?
