If The Corridors of Power Could Talk

Vampire Elvis Minister Without Portfolio, strolled nonchalantly through the corridors of power as if he owned them. He had recently been strolling through the corridors of empowerment.  These were a new initiative from the Communities and Tackling Poverty portfolio which mainly consisted of making the ceilings of the corridors of power slightly lower so Welsh people could feel taller.  This would give them a sense of empowerment, leading to statistically greater levels of overall achievement during their careers.

Vampire Elvis had hit his head three times in the first four minutes and was trying to find his way around the Welsh Assembly using only the corridors of power. There were now so few actual corridors of power that he did indeed feel like he owned them.  A hand suddenly snaked out from a doorway, grabbed him by the collar and yanked him into an office.

First Minister the Rt Hon Carwyn Jones AM pinned him up against a wall and glanced at the door like a cornered animal. His foot flew out and kicked the door closed.

VAMPIRE ELVIS

 Uh, hu, I er…… I just think of you as a friend man….

Well, more like an acquaintance actually….

CARWYN

No, don’t be stupid mun. I’ve got it. I know what it’s all about.

VAMPIRE ELVIS

Uh hu…

CARWYN

A Welsh Space Force.

VAMPIRE ELVIS

Uh hu….

CARWYN

When it comes to protecting our nation and our

way of life, the only thing we can’t afford is inaction.

VAMPIRE ELVIS

I’m with you there baby.

CARWYN

The Welsh people deserve our very best and they will have it.

It is not enough merely to have a Welsh convention centre in

space, we must have Welsh dominance in space.

VAMPIRE ELVIS

Uh, hu….

CARWYN

Previous administrations all but neglected the growing

security threats emerging in space.  Space is a

warfighting domain just like land and air and sea.

The Welsh Space Force will strengthen our security,

it will ensure our prosperity.

VAMPIRE ELVIS

You’re crumpling my shirt man.

CARWYN

It will also carry Welsh ideals into the boundless expanse

of space.  While other nations increasingly possess

the capability to operate in space, not all of them

share our commitment to freedom, private property

and the rule of law.

VAMPIRE ELVIS

God damn it, that’s what I’ve been saying.

CARWYN

So as we continue to carry Welsh leadership in

space so also will we carry Wales’s commitment

to freedom into this new… Final frontier.

VAMPIRE ELVIS

So………

CARWYN

So we need to put the team back together.

The Space Force must happen.
