Welsh National Opera
at 10:35 12 May 2024

They are making a fuss, demanding more moeny form the Senedd and one of them, a Soprano, is on Welsh politics this morning saying Westminster should agree an emergency funding package to safeguard jobs, seriously...WTF?

They can't safeguard TATA jobs, they can't safeguard the NHS, schools, police or social care and rhe Opera demand more money from government.

I say they can go forth and multiply. There are far more important things than jobs for a few hundred people that only a few thousand go to watch.

The tainted First Minister
at 13:29 28 Apr 2024

Meet vaughn Gething, the First Minister who managed to screw his job up before he'd even actually been given it,

https://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/politics/real-fury-behind-scenes-welsh-290647

The fact that Gething apparently cannot see what is wrong here, cannot see the conflict, surely it marks him down as unsuitable to be in politics let alone be leader of our country?

How perverse can it get and even more than just the 56 billion, they are also sacking 10% of the workforce which is close on 10,000 people.

Welsh education

Now then, this is another typical Senedd response,

The Senedd is pressing ahead with giving free moeny out, it's wasted millions on plenty of things and through gross negligence had to send 155 million back to Westminster and now it will not do something to help Welsh education unless it is "cost neutral"

More Westminster F-wittery
at 15:10 5 Apr 2024

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-68740332

In what world is it ok to give other peoples data out these days? Let alone giving out other Mp's private numbers. Bad enough he did it but then apparently 2 MP's responded to naked pictures by sending pictures of themselves! Westminster if full of F-wits! They need to be removed.

This Wragg, of he had any clue at all, onstead of doing as he did, he should have gone straight to the security services and reported this. National security has to come before whtever compromising info they had on him. That was probably pictures he'd sent back anyway the total cockwomble. After reporting to the security services he should then have resigned immediately.

Instead he's still in post and Jeremy Chunt is praising him for apologising!

Never mind a general election, if he hasn't resigned the Tory idiots should have suspended him.

If you cannot trust an MP to know about data protection then they should never be allowed to be an MP.

Aid workers killed

My personal belief is that Israel did it on purpose. They don't want aid reaching Gaza because their intention is to wipe it out completely, they want those that aren't killed to leave so there is no more Muslim presence there.

And please, of you can't be sensible, don't post. It's ruining the forum and preventing decent debate.

Maybe our owners aren't that bad!

This recession
at 18:46 15 Feb 2024

isn't ironic,

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-68285833

people stopped spending which contributed to creating this recession but people stopped spending bcause of the high cost of living caused by the unflation the government didn't do enough to get under control quick enough.

If they'd removed green taxes from petrol for 3-6 months that would have been better, in my definitely not expert opinion.

Now we're told there won't be tax cuts in the next budget unlesss they cut services too, well what a surprise. We know the country is broke and we know it's because of decades of financial mismanagement by successive governments.

The diesel scandal, PPE scandal and the green taxes which appear to be a rip off also as all these green taxes take a lot of money but where has it gone?

Transport for Wales got a big boost in the Senedd budget, 50%,

Yet now prices are also rising by 4.9%,

Lee Waters called it a below inflation rise but the CPI is given as 4% so aren't the consumers of train services getting an above inflation price raise?

Have we finally had enough

What we have seen with the Post Office scandal, the mass outpouring of support for those poor people, is this the start of us using our voices and making the powers that be pay attention, or is it just a flash in the pan?

Will the great British public stand together going forward, will social media drive people on to demand what is fair and right and will a unfied voice see changes happen? Or will we all just climb back into our boxes?

The Welsh Brain Drain
at 12:19 29 Dec 2023

https://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/wales-news/truth-welsh-brain-drain-told-28318

As has been said many times on here, young people are leaving Wales because there is very little opportunity for them. The Welsh population is the slowest growing in the UK and much of that is the retirees moving here with their nice private pensions having sold bg expensive houses elsewhere which means Wales is indeed turning into an English retirement home.

This is because of the Senedd so in basic terms those who hope for an indy Wales are peeing into the wind because as th years pass the number of Welsh in Wales is falling and the English number is increasing.

Kilkenny thinks the young will take us out of the Uk but how can they when they will have taken themselves out of Wales? Those elderly English people are also more likley to be Tory voters so one day, if we have a decent Tory party (right now the idea is laughable) Wales may vote Tory.

Even the Plaid leader is calling out Labour on this,

In response Plaid Cymru’s leader Rhun ap Iorwerth MS called on the Welsh Government to develop a new strategy to tackle depopulation in Welsh communities. The Member of the Senedd for Ynys Môn said “tai, gwaith, iaith” – meaning "homes, jobs, and language" in English – were the cornerstones of “vibrant and resilient communities”.

Although with the numbers of fluent Welsh speakers still falling despite all that's being done it's hard to see how "iath" is so important, surely homes and jobs are what is really important? being a homeless, unemployed Welsh speaker is hardly good.
