For sensible responsible people both are achievable
Not in Wales it's not, we have a devolved government that are either so wrapped up in political points scoring or they have just lost the plot completely..... They are now telling us that any shops that are allowed to stay open are only allowed to sell us essential items.....

I'm struggling to see how Wales is in such a predicament when their devolved government was only crowing a few months ago on how low their rates of infection were compared to England - what happened?

It is still low compared to England, the county I live in was put into local lockdown with an infection rate of 32 in 100000...! We now have a rate of 72....the worst region only has a rate of just over 100 and some regions are going into full lockdown tonight with a rate of less than 20.... Yet when everyone else in the UK was told no more than 6 people could meet up the Welsh government were saying it was OK for 30 to meet.... I am fairly certain they are only doing it to prove that they don't have to follow UK government guidelines

Ahhh, Brexit will sort that out. In a few months time there won't by anything to buy, anway.
The only possible issues are goods from EU countries.
The EU are making it awkward for their 27 members to trade with one of their biggest export markets - The UK

Yes, I got that impression as well, the same with N Sturgeon and co
These politicians want independence for their countries from England (UK) and spout on and on about it saying they will financially cope blah blah blah.
Now they are making their own rules but want England (UK) to pay for their decisions?

I live less than 20 miles from the English border, if Wales ever got independence I would be moving over that border quicker than a rat up a drainpipe..... I wouldn't trust the idiots in Cardiff Bay to run a pee up in a brewery never mind a country

It is worth the wait Mick, he runs a very good fishery, even if you don't like commercial fisheries it is really nice, worth giving the Crucian pool a few hours with a nice fresh loaf of tesco's best.

I was really hoping to stay a few days and book a few lessons with the man, its meant to be an "experience"

Even if you don't get the lessons he is very free with his advice and very approachable, the only downside of the fishery is the limited availability of live bait (maggots, casters, worms) in the entire area, everyone tends to use pellets but I have found bread to be a very good alternative

Don't confuse devolution with independence , in the referendum it got through with 25% of the voting public 50% couldn't be bothered to vote . I think most of the voters who supported devolution now regret it . As for independence see how well Plaid Cymru do in elections , the vast majority do not want independence especially with the likes of Dripford in charge .
