It is time for Wales to be independent........


It's time for Wales. It's time for an independent Wales.. As I leave Ystradgynlais this morning I know it in my heart. I have long known it. We need a Wakes that is decentralised, unaligned neutal, non nuclear and Ecosocialist. We need a Wales where energy comes from a renewable source and that this energy is owned by the community. We need a Wales that is multi lingual, .multcultural and one that values, informs and describes it's traditions, culture and uniqueness. A Wales of many faiths and of none. A country where you are Welsh because you live here and Welsh because you appreciate its history,, culture land and people. A Wales that is open and tolerant and excepting of identities and differences. A Wales that is both European and Welsh a.Wales that is Republican and egalitarian . A Wales that resembles the Scandinavian model. A Wales that promotes the Welsh language and values and understands the other numerous languages spoken there. A Wales aware of its history and how it links Iinked to a wider European context and a Wales of gender equality in all its varied forms.

At the end if the 19th century my family headed for London. They provided a link that blended with Jewish, Spanish, Irish and a Lincolnshire element that gave me a varied and culturally rich past. The family members read cards on the front at Llandudno, they played cricket , they were building estimators and railway workers, legal secretaries and small shop keepers. Last of all they came back to Wales, went to University there and I became a European Traveller working for numerous European companies and countries . Lastly and I became a Psychotherapist valuing continental thought and philosophy while loving the poetry of Dylan Thomas, R S Thomas and the Mabinogion . I am Welsh and my son has taken on a Welsh name , the family has returned and we are no longer exiles and. I live in Ystradgynlais. And this is why on this lovely July morning as the bus leaves Pontardawe that I and many others want an independent Wales. No longer should we be a naked people living under the acidic policies of this Conservative DUP hybrid monster. Good morning have a great day....
