Fancy £25,000 anyone?

Posted on Updated on

That well known writer (joke), Martin Daws, has just received a Creative Wales Ambassadors Award of £25,000.  Why you might ask?  Good question.  Well the answer is simple.  This bloke wants to go on holiday to the USA and so we (the great Welsh taxpayer) need to be able to (in his own words) “develop his skills as a poet”.

The Creative Wales Ambassadors Awards are made by nomination and recognise significant individual achievement in the arts, along with the aim to raise the profile of Welsh culture outside of Wales. Alongside Martin, Julia Griffiths Jones and Richard Gwyn have also received the prestigious Creative Wales Ambassadors Award 2013/14.

Professor Dai Smith, Chair, Arts Council of Wales, father of Owen Smith MP  has congratulated this year’s successful ambassadors:

“We are pleased to have been able to augment these awards in difficult times.”

Too bloody right they are difficult times!!  Well, they are for the rest of us, but once again the Taffia seem to be able to snap their fingers and cash appears…  Yep, sick indeed.
