On a more positive note regarding Welsh NHS! Nice to see (The Elite!) Singleton Hospital staff of various specialities continuing strong links with Gambia and lending valuable expertise in 2020. Long may it continue!
The ELITE of the public sector that you mentioned there are well and truly the very hardest to replace, cos once out of the door goes unique skills, renowned speciality, remarkable talent, supreme intelligence and years of experience.
The fact a leading Singleton Hospital oncologist refused to have 'hit-and-run' attention seeking A.M's poison an 'opening event with their presence' a few years back says it all imo.
Heard exactly that myself over the airwaves during the Conservative campaign trail.
I was also enlightened to the fact that this relief road (or alternative option?) farce had come with a consultation process and obscene waste of money cost of well over ONE HUNDRED MILLION POUNDS.
But do not worry i.e. the dynamic-doer (NOT!) Mark Drakeford has set up a commission to look at things. Aye, commissions, task-force initiatives and ongoing review processes sure do kick things into the long grass even further whilst Wales sinks even deeper into the mud.
There should be absolute outage at diabolical decision making like that cos if Cardiff-centric Welsh Labour was offered all that money to spend solely in Cardiff, and nothing elsewhere, that money would have have been snatched away with speed of light reaction.
Yep it was indeed Welsh Labour that refused the money, but have you noticed the 'opposition' the alternative to the status quo, do rather seem to be more happy with that. And they're meant to be the very people waiting in the sidelines to take power in an independent Wales.
I'll give you some Einstein stuff i.e. in the very same way an art teacher keeps a sharp pair of scissors away from a delinquent child with an urge to vandalise. The same should happen with the likes of Adam Price and his merry gang of regressive s regarding force-multiplied power.
Here is another Einstein bit i.e. when a country is offered over a billion Pounds of Westminster money to help progress Wales out of the last century? Do not refuse it... Take the bloody money and bloody well SPEND IT rather than blatantly let Wales rot even further.
Beloved Tories? I think you'll find that I have praised the likes of Dr Dai Lloyd on this very forum to the hilt on numerous occasions..., I have also praised Peter Law and Llew Smith to the hilt. Cannot remember a Tory getting my praise like that.
You know? Peter Law, Llew Smith and Dai Lloyd who never ever belong/belonged in cloud-cuckoo-land category. Talk the country down?.... FFS, even HTV Wales current affairs talks Wales down i.e. stated that Wales has a 1960's standard transport system. Managed decline and callous devolution neglect to strategically/blatantly keep Wales poor is why the country is being talked down in the first place.
And whatsmore, the Welsh Nats lack of action, concern, ambition, vision on that does rather say a lot....They'd take Wales even further back, full steam ahead with 'Project - New- Albania' albeit with coracles and lots more potholes.
Aye, a coalition so anti-ambition and so anti-progress they've all decided to sweep the recent denial of desperately required transport infrastructure improvement under the carpet. Not a peep out of them!
Call me picky? But I think the very people/political groups that prefer Wales to sink further into the mud, that prefers its population to suffer the consequences of appalling government are best kept away from any government.
Never mind, they'll distract everyone with patriotic romanticism and Dafydd Iwan video's showing farms, castles, sheep, Eisteddfod clog dancing, coracles and roads with potholes.... That'll really get inward investment and the traffic moving!
What visionaries we've got in the Welsh independence camp! What street-fighters to fight for Wales on the world stage! What ambition! What dynamism!
Nah not really .....They're a bunch of Westminster/English hating Dafydd Iwan cd collection romanticists. A motley crew of parochial stuck-in-the-mud bumpkins, happy with a 1960's transport system, utterly unconcerned and not bothered in the slightest at recent news that the Welsh Assembly turned down the opportunity to fund some of our 1960's transport system.
FFS talk about exactly the wrong people to have in charge of an entire country. Terrifying to think what these regressive's would be like in government.
Can you please post me links from the Yes Cymru lot, Plaid Cymru lot and others outside of Welsh Labour outraged and disgusted at the recent decision to refuse the desperately required improvement to Welsh transport infrastructure. A decision that brought a reaction of i.e. "This is a dark day for the Welsh economy" from Wales CBI.
After all its the Welsh Independence lot that would be expected to take the reigns in an undemocratic (Labour banned from ruling) independent Wales.
I caught a fleeting section of a closing bit of what could be the very same service on Welsh news last night. If its the same one? It involves Llantrisant. Get this! On the news, the Welsh Assembly was passing the buck onto the health board, makes a change from blaming the Tories for what is yet another devolved issue. To think some idiots want to give that lot full power along with total Welsh independence/devolution.
The same "nothing to do with us, guv" approach/tactic has been seen down this part of the world regarding hospital service closures. The impression the Welsh Assembly likes to give is that senior NHS management/health boards are of higher rank to the very sitting government that is actually in power. Work that one out? Cos I can't?
Aye, that's the same bunch of village idiot yokels who recently turned down mega-money from Westminster to build desperately required road transport infrastructure. And that is despite wasting tens of millions preparing for that very intention anyhow....and when money is handed to em on a plate to achieve exactly what they previously wanted?......They turned it down!
Black-comedy-surreal, it's a Welsh mishmash version of Yes Minister, Monty Python and Alan Partridge!
On the subject about running around the countryside?
3:41s....Superstar of R.U.C/Army sighting lists i.e. the legendary (arms crossed) Slab Murphy himself. I bet he must have really struggled to stay awake during a Palestine themed conference what with the 'heavy' content and attention process being continually interrupted by thoughts about about diesel and other contraband.
