Literature Wales

Well, I used the word ‘entitlement’ many times 5 years ago, in respect of that holier than thou Literature Wales. 

The Welsh Government has finally seen the light. After finding the Board incapable and lacking any knowledge, Literature Wales has taken a hammering. A lot of its 1.2 million pa has been taken away and handed over to Welsh Books Council.

Try ‘entitlement’ now then, one of the Welsh Government’s standard phrases in its report!

PS I passed a report on Welsh Arts funding to an Accounts Committee of the Assembly. They took note and gave the Arts Council a right grilling.

    • Well, I wouldn’t use the word ‘nepotism’, might do the trick by using the Welsh language doesn’t always supply and demand – as the Chief Executive of Literature Wales, might know a thing or two about this?

  1. How Welsh was Roald Dahl? The Chief Executive of Literature Wales thinks he is very Welsh.

    Dahl was named after the Norwegian polar explorer Roald Amundsen. His first language was Norwegian, which he spoke at home with his parents and his sisters Astri, Alfhild and Else. Dahl and his sisters were raised in the Lutheran faith, and were baptised at the Norwegian Church, Cardiff, where their parents worshipped.

    Lleucu Siencyn proves that you don’t have to speak Cymraeg to be classed as Welsh.

    Isn’t it good that we have a multicultural society in Wales. The English speaking community in Wales gives us tremendous diversity does it not?……and of course the Norwegian speaking community too.

    Let’s celebrate! We don’t need to be in the European Union to feel really European in Wales.. It has been said that we were only in the EU for the handouts. Balderdash I say!

    Diversity is our strength!
