Newport Does It Again.....!

What is it about this city that produces such quality comedy rap...?

Interesting to reflect on why we in Wales love to parody ourselves. We are not, after all, a serious people, but rather talk about the day to day things with a bit of humour.

For another, not so politically correct, insight into another of Wales' great cities, go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9zGmJ8wpw9Q.(not responsible for the questionable content!)

On a more political note, interesting article by Tomos Livingstone of the Western Mail today here.

The case for a yes vote in the referendum must be properly explained if it is to be won. Wales, as a place with limited conservative support, must be able to properly carve its own political destiny to reflect its dire needs. The LCO system is a major block to this.

"A “yes” vote in next year’s referendum on strengthening the Assembly’s powers would be a first step to addressing this – and the need for citizens to be able to understand what’s going on in their name is an argument that could do with a more frequent airing."

As a politics student its hard to understand what is devolved, it must be made simpler for true accountability.

Food for thought,
