I Guess Welsh Health Minister Lesley Griffiths Has Already Donated Her Brain….

Families would have no legal right to stop dead relatives' organs being used for transplant if the person has not opted out in advance, under a proposed Welsh law.

However, Health Minister Lesley Griffiths said she could not see a situation where doctors took organs without the permission of families.
Really, love?

Good god, you must be very, very stupid then

Please, Julia. She is a politician. What else could you possibly expect?

I wondered how long it would be until the state got into the Organlegging game.

Impossible to say whether it was a whopping lie or the greatest political naïvety since Neville Chamberlain's 'I have this piece of paper' speech.

"... and by 2019 the Welsh government had examined the possibility of adapting long rumoured Chinese policies of shooting condemned criminals, and occasionally those convicted of serious but not capital crimes, and harvesting the organs, see. Unfortunately it was already known by then that apart from criminals there was only one person left in Wales, Jones the Gun, who still had the means to shoot anyone, who had hidden it and refused to tell anybody where. This lead to the disastrous experiment in 2020 of putting criminals to death by the unusual means of massed close harmony singing, look you. It had not been anticipated that all indigenous Welsh criminals would simply join in, each already having demanded many thousands of renditions of Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau as their last request. Meanwhile, from the outset executions of foreign prisoners (the very first being a Mrs Preposition from Walsall who'd been convicted of stealing a sheep's makeup bag) caused international outrage and eventually led to charges in the Hague and a Europe wide boycott on Charlotte Church..."

Since when was Wales a separate country & able to make its own laws ?

Since when did Wales have a "government" ?

Wales is a principality, subject to the same laws as the remainder of the United Kingdom .. and merely has an Assembly .. NOT a government ..

Its about time these people were reminded of where they fit into the scheme of things ..

One day England might get it's own parliament as well......

Since 1999. Limited powers, sure, but it's got a First Minister and some kind of cabinet, possibly from Cardiff Ikea, and after the disintegration of the Untied Kingdom in 2016... ;-)

Clearly, they think most sci-fi, not just '1984', is a blueprint!



"One day England might get it's own parliament as well......"

Dream on!

Maybe this is good thing. We could start with donating a bit of Welsh heart and brains to the English rugby team. Not any voice boxes obviously.

The woman is a politician, so they play at politics.

That means she sits in a warm office and between leafing through holiday brochures (the men can surf pron if they don't fancy Ibiza) she makes 'important decisions' about the lives of her flock.

This will be one of them, because it is a condition of the job that a politician with power has to exercise it and "do something!"

But could have been worse. She might have insisted all sheep have aids tests.

Informed consent?

Like free speech it is an obstacle to the elite and cannot be allowed to exist.
