The Western Fail fails yet again

Mocking the continued failure of the self-title 'national newspaper of Wales' is now becoming something of an annual event. 2012's fun at the flopping fail can be found here and 2013's here.

ABC has released its circulation certificate for the fail and it makes for grim reading. As a recap average sales of the fail were down to 23,717 copies last year but that included all the freebies the Cardiff-centric rag were giving away down in Swansea. The figures after the freebies were subtracted was just 21,728. This figure is the average across the week with over 31,000 on Saturday down to around 19-20,000 during the week.

This year's figures are much, much worse.

Scumbag Labour - Prosiect Ffear

By now we're all pretty much up to speed with 'project fear', the self-titled scare tactics employed by the Better Together-No Thanks-UKOKs (or whatever they are called this week).

For those that are not up to speed it revolves around the following premise, rather than trying to put forward a coherant message of why Scotland should remain ruled from London the British Nationalists are simply resorting to scare stories. 'Scotland will be kicked out of the EU' whilst simultaneously being 'forced to use the Euro', 'won't be allowed to use the UK NHS' despite this actually never existing as they are all independent from each other and how about threatening to 'bomb Scottish airports' in the event of invasion despite the fact that the only country to invade Scotland in recent memory was England.

Above is just a few I've listed but it appears that project fear is now making its way to Wales. I've dubbed this 'prosiect ffear' so that we can differentiate between the two but it's basically the same premise just aimed at a Welsh audience.

See how many 'prosiect ffear' examples you can spot. Share via twitter | facebook

Wrexham Lager - A confused history

A simple image search for Wrexham Lager adverts, cans and beer mats will show a confused history of the Wrexham Lager company. They can all be summed up with the following poster, shared to my facebook page by a reader.

Scumbag Labour - Calum Higgins

The Red Tories clearly have a real Labourite on their hands in Calum Higgins. For those who have never heard of him he is the Red Tories candidate for Carmarthen East and Dinefwr, he is also a Tycroes County Councillor. I'll just mention his name one more time in the hope that google puts it a little higher up the search lists. Calum Higgins.

Scumbag Labour - Best Day Ever

Picture the scene, you're an MP and you have been an MP for 23 years. You were parachuted into an area you don't care about and this is now your job for life. Alternatively if you prefer to pretend to be an AM then let's pretend you've been an AM for an area for 15 years.

As an MP / AM you get to open things and meet people. Sometimes it's a shop, perhaps a park or if you're really lucky you get to open up a food bank.

This is the same face Hain pulls when receiving his expenses. Share via twitter | facebook
