They're going to be dining out on this:


Police probe columnist Rod Liddle over 'hate crime' after he mocked the Welsh by saying the Second Severn Crossing 'linked them with the First World'

Very soon, nobody will be able to tell a joke without fear of being reported. This country is being run by, policed by and dictated to, by idiots.

I'm Welsh and I have no problem with Rod's comments. I do however have a very real fear of the thought police who are rapidly turning this country in to an Orwellian nightmare.

But in London, knife crime continues and pensioners are victimized for having been burgled. Keep going plod, respect drops day by day.

Readers often ask what the police do. This is a great example of what police leaders believe to be a crime that needs investigation.

I was unaware that London was on North Wales Police's patch. You live and learn...

Used to live in Cinderford and work in Monmouth. Hated it.
You had a lucky escape then. There's some right weirdos in that forest. Back in the 90s when my parents lived in Ross, my dad used to save the Dean Forest Gazette & Wye Valley Review for me to read when I went over. The mind boggled. Forest Fred's column was usually good for laugh though.

Though it wasn't such a great idea to cycle from Ross to Hay, climb Hay Bluff, and return to Ross via Llanthony valley. Or, at least, the filling the saddlebag with second hand railway books before attempting Hay Bluff wasn't, anyway.
