Nadolig Llawen

Betsan Powys | 22:27 UK time, Monday, 24 December 2007

Yes, you're right. Now I really have gone absent - this time, on leave - and en route to St Fagan's to sing with friends at the late Christmas service.

But it didn't feel right to go without saying Merry Christmas to you, one and all.

If 2007 brought you everything you wished for - and I'm not (just) thinking of coalitions and Ministerial posts here - then may 2008 bring you more of the same. If it didn't hit the mark, then I hope next year is a happy, new dawn.

From A ...dam Price MP to V.. alleys Mam and W... agstaff (Miss) (not leaving anyone out on the way of course) Nadolig Llawen iawn i chi gyd.

Since Christmas is the time for a little light reading, you might enjoy an excerpt from Margaret Drabble's recent novel, "The Sea Lady" in relation to the name of Clegg that amused me coming so closely behind the Lib Dem leadership outcome.

p295 "I changed my name because ... Clegg is an unfortunate name. It's not a pretty name. It's a heavy name, an ugly name. An inferior-form-of-life sort of name. Do you know what a cleg is? .. A cleg is a horsefly. Cleg-flies are bloodsuckers. Well the females are. The female is more dangerous than the male"

Happy New Year

NHS and devolution (bbc website)

"Michael Summers, vice chair of the Patients Association, said England was lagging behind the rest of the UK"

Great point story Betsan- why is Wales the envy of patients in England? And Happy New Year!!

Frankly I find it quite shocking that there is no mention what so ever on the BBC Wales news website today regarding the shocking and quite frankly inappropriate comments made by the chief of Police for North Wales, Richard Brunstrom, and the fact that the vast majority of the public would like to see the end to this man's dire rein. There is a thin blue line that seperates the UK from many failing states and that is not having a politicised Police forrce - something that Mr Brunstrom fails to take notice of!

Hope you also had a very merry Christmas. Best wishes for 2008.
