One Wales Grand Slam


EMBARGO: For immediate release as soon as the whistle has blown in our favour.

People of Wales. I speak to you now as your leader, and though I do not take full credit for what we have achieved on the field today, I cannot help but think that this achievement would not have been managed under any other government.*

What the true and honest Welsh Plaid-lab men named Warren Gatland and Shaun Edwards have done, is to turn the men in red into men of steel, just like the Welsh teams of the golden years thirty years ago.

This team is playing with a ruthless defensive efficiency, combined with traditional Welsh attacking flair, very much like the Press and Propaganda Office of my government.

If I live long enough to swim and eat with dolphins in my twilight years (subject to my own 'private' healthcare plan), never will I experience such success that we have witnessed together, under the umbrella of a safe, Labour-led government of Wales.

* On behalf of the One Wales Government we thank you for providing space in the stadium for an emergency Cabinet meeting to discuss our sycophantic and opportunistic ways to join in with you on this triumphant occasion.

Joking aside. Heartfelt congratulations to the team and coaching staff for providing the public with such an amazing and emotional tournament. You deserve it!

Update: Celebration Parade/Plans. What the hell has it got to do with the Welsh Assembly Government? Assembly politicians, leave it alone! The WRU are in talks with Cardiff City & County Council - keep your opportunistic nose out!

Very funny take on it all. Trust the Assembly Government to make a meal of it by splashing the victory over their website when you click on their address. Good on you for raising this... the opportunistic buggers.

You'd think he'd prefer to spend time with his wife and grandchildren rather than dolphins. Each to their own.

I don't think he was intending to eat the dolphins. I think he said he wanted to eat mackerel like the dolphins.

I just can't imagine dolphin and sglods.

Wyneb y pysgod,

Don't blame me, this post was written by Senedd Whip, and probably the morning after ;)

On his behalf I shall change it to 'swim and eat with dolphins', as I wouldn't want people to think that the First Mnister has an unusual diet.

Well done Wales. Shame on you Rhodri for taking advantage of Welsh success that your government had nothing to do with.

Congrats for very impressive Blog and for the Grand Slam!

Could you please comment about the Segolene Royal affair at Harvard regarding her reported support for the independence of the US territory of Porto Rico?

If she can say this about Porto Rico, she may consider saying the same about Wales, right!?
