A Google Alert informed me of this. I had no idea I was being filmed for public consumption.
None of the guest speakers appear to have been Youtubed eg the Chairman of the ACW or the CEO of Literature Wales, I can’t imagine why? As the facilitator of Index makes clear, I was not a scheduled speaker, my contribution was totally off the cuff and unprepared. No notes etc.
A short arse or two went before me, thus my hunched up back trying to reach the microphone…..ooops, Ruck being a ‘shortist’ swine now, disgraceful! I felt quite sorry for international Index Censorshp, well intentioned but I don’t think they really knew what they were up against, thus the small turnout. Out of the 30-40 people there I was the only one to speak up when the session was thrown open.
It all says a great deal about Wales and you can be sure of one thing, had the Welsh media been involved no way in a million years would any of this have been broadcast or put out on the internet.
Welcome to the People’s Republic of Wales.
