Holiday Home Tax Break To Hit Wales

Recommended Posts

You've got to love the poll:

Are you expecting a cold winter?

Yes – I’m preying for snow


No – it’ll just be grey and miserable


Not where I’m going


Don’t live in the UK


Couldn’t care less


What about yes - it''ll be horrid!

and preying is their spelling not mine!

Surely this is a call to arms - or should that be matches?

PREYING - That, sadly, is probably the result of 30 years of ALL UK tax-payers paying vast sums of taxes in order for a VERY SMALL group of self-serving Welsh Nationalists to make themselves incredibly rich by having INCREDIBLY will-paying jobs in numerous Welsh language QUANGOs.

You should see what they have done with 'taxi'.

At this very moment Public money is being spent on translating, wait for this, well known curry dishes into Welsh. I kid you not.

Basically, Welsh Nationalists have been bought off - I think the process started when the Tory government caved in when Gwynfor Evans went on hunger strike (a tactic borrowed from our Irish cousins) pushing for a Welsh language TV channel that became S4C (Gwynfor was prepared to die for the cause and really stoked up tension across Wales - especially in Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion). There used to be loads of "GO GWYNFOR" slogans around here.

I think the government knew what they were doing - diffusing the tension by throwing cash at the community that were causing the trouble. You've seen similar tactics employed in Northern Ireland.

Having said that, I've nothing against the Welsh language. I love Y Fro Cymraeg.
