Christmas Rap

As Christmas gets closer the news flows more slowly, hence the Western Mail this morning leads on a Welsh Development Agency staff party. As the WDA will cease to exist on 1 April it is the last such event before the staff all become civil servants, some hi-jinks are to be expected therefore. In this case though those antics take on a political overtone as a song performed by a a few staff members undermines the claim by Economic Development Minister, Andrew Davies, that morale is high and that everybody is looking forward to the challenges ahead.

The words of Newport band Goldie Lookin' Chain's rap song Guns Don't Kill People, Rappers Do were changed to "Funds don't kill people, mergers do, Ask any politician and they'll say it ain't true". The paper reports that it was greeted with spontaneous applause at the party in Cardiff. The Western Mail actually carries the entire re-write but I will spare you the agony. Needless to say, things are not as rosy in the garden as the Welsh Assembly Government would have us believe.
