Photo Article: The madness of Welsh economics in action

By Tom Winnifrith | Friday 23 October 2020


Tomorrow, notwithstanding the house arrest fire break that starts at 6PM tonight,  I head over the border to England. I do so perfectly legally, because I am doing so to get my annual flu jab. There is no surgery in our village here in Wales so almost all of us are registered with an English infidel GP a few hundred yards away on the other side of the river. Once in England I may wish to go shopping or head out for lunch at a restaurant or to go for a snifter at a boozer.

Because, as of 6PM tonight across Wales for 17 days, pubs and restaurants are shutting down and shops can sell only essential items. The madness of not allowing Tesco to sell socks but to sell milk I explain HERE.

As a result of this, across Wales today we see scenes like the one below.  That means more business for English pubs, restaurants and shops and more unemployment here in Wales.  But what do the arseholes in the Welsh assembly, still drawing bloated salaries and expenses, or the officious control freaks who “work” for local authorities or the authoritarian, even in normal times, North Wales Police care?  Their jobs and fat pensions are secure. The misery is just for little people.
