Teach your children well.
Teach them of our once-efficient railway infra-structure; of our once-productive coal-mines; of the ships we built; of our many factories which used to produce fine, well-made goods and paid the wages of thousands of our workers.
Teach them of the aftermath of Blantyre, of Gresford, of Landshipping.
Teach them of Tolpuddle and Peterloo.
Teach them that our priests and ministers of religion rarely preach the great truth of their scriptures: “The love of money is the root of all evil”.
Teach them to use the most dangerous of questions: “Why?”.
Teach them that it is possible to rebuild our strong, supportive, caring communities and to live in peace with our neighbours.
Teach them. Teach them. Oh, please, teach them . . .
