The St David Awards recognise and celebrate the exceptional achievements of people in Wales. They acknowledge people who are making a real difference for this country – either at home or abroad. They are great marks of distinction and the highest accolades that Welsh Government confers on our citizens nationally.
Unfortunately, in the ‘Culture’ category the prize went to, yes, you’ve guessed it, Owen Sheers.
Taffia Book of the Year winner Owen Sheers is one of the arts council and Literature Wales’ golden boys. If there is cash up for grabs you’ll always find him at the head of the queue. He was even made Professor in Creativity at Swansea University (great salary I bet!) even though his ‘work’ is so bad that it is laughed at around the globe.
The committee who can be blamed for picking this talentless nobody is here.
