Performing for our public
BBC Wales have now withdrawn a series of tribute programmes to Welsh folk singer, Dafydd Iwan, due to be broadcast on Radio Wales, on the grounds that he is now President of Plaid Cymru. Quite right too. If they had gone ahead the other parties would have been more than entitled to equal airtime. We would have had to listen to programmes dedicated to the wit of Nick Bourne, to memory man, Rhodri Morgan, and of course the mouth organ of Lembit Opik. It is too much to contemplate. I suppose I could have offered them a poetry reading.
