It’s not unusual – the sequel
FURIOUS Welshman is a real Welshman. Such uncompromising measures against police states must become – that’s right – the new normal. More at PJW on the communist attack on the Welsh by Mark Drakeford. A social worker by training, the Labour First Minister has the unusual distinction for a national leader of having a son in jail for raping a minor. The court was told he did it as “punishment.” Interesting.
It would be easy to imagine that the Welsh lockdown is very similar to the national one in April and May. In most ways it is. Just about everything has been closed down, except for a few shops and services that are completely vital to keep everyone alive as they huddle down at home. But this week we learned the Welsh First Minister Mark Drakeford has decided to take it one step further. Apparently not only will ‘non-essential’ shops have to close, but the few that remain open will also be banned from selling ‘non-essential’ items.
Want to buy some socks at Tesco? Sorry, not allowed. Aftershave at Boots? Forget it. Or pick up a book, perhaps, while filling up the car with petrol? That isn’t going to be permitted. Apparently, according to Drakeford, he has to create a ‘level-playing field’ so that some shops don’t have any ‘unfair advantage’ during lockdown. ‘We will be making it clear to supermarkets that they are only able to open those parts of their business that provide essential goods to people,’ Drakeford told the Welsh Parliament in Cardiff. What exactly counts as essential and non-essential hasn’t been decided yet – even though Welsh retailers have already reacted with alarm – but no doubt the First Minister will decide in due course.
This is Stalin’s liquidation of the kulaks meets John Hewson’s birthday cake meets Christo and Jeanne-Claude.
