Flying the flag

Some unpleasantness on the campaign trail today... a pompous young man from another party approaches two Plaid activists engaged in some "direct democracy" (aka hanging a banner over the A483). He says "it's just not on" and demands it is removed. When he gets an emphatic answer in the negative, he stomps off to sit in his swish car and phones to complain the Electoral Registration office at Wrecsam Council.
And then he drives off, having presumably seen the banner while on the dual carriageway. It certainly made an impact with the hundreds of motorists who were able to see our cheap and cheerful banner.
Why resort to a bit of guerilla marketing? Well, we haven't got access to non-domiciled millionaires to pay for our campaign like Labour and Conservative, nor convicted fraudsters who donated £2.4m to the Liberal Democrats. The Lib Dems refuse to pay it back to those defrauded by their generous donor.
Next time Mr Pompous decides to have a go, perhaps he'll consider the phrase "mae angen aderyn glan i ganu".

What is it with the offspring of peers of the realm, were they born arrogant and with attitude or did they just get that when their daddies got a posh job?
