-# Mae Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau #

-Fellow citizens of Wales -

-nobles and commoners...

0:00:360:00:39

-..it is a privilege and an honour

-for you, once again this year...

0:00:390:00:43

-..to listen to me, Meirion Llywelyn,

-your First Minister...

0:00:430:00:47

-..greeting you

-during the feast of the Nativity.

0:00:480:00:51

-What is the significance

-of Christmas to us...

0:00:520:00:55

-..the Welsh people

-of the 21st century?

0:00:550:00:58

-Simply, friends, it is the perfect

-and frightening example...

0:00:580:01:02

-..of the future

-if we dare surrender the reins...

0:01:020:01:05

-..and slip back

-into the clutches of the S word.

0:01:050:01:09

-Yes, indeed. Socialism.

0:01:090:01:12

-The story of the birth of Jesus

-serves as unmistakable proof...

0:01:120:01:16

-..that the aforesaid system

-was a failure from the outset.

0:01:160:01:20

-It is a seasonal warning to us all.

0:01:200:01:22

-Consider the facts.

0:01:220:01:24

-The little one was born in a stable,

-on a bed of hay in a manger.

0:01:240:01:28

-No planning...

0:01:290:01:30

-..no signs of preparing for the hard

-journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem.

0:01:300:01:35

-An ass instead of a taxi,

-no budget, no timetable...

0:01:360:01:40

-..and a snowball's chance

-in hell...

0:01:400:01:42

-..of finding accommodation

-after getting there.

0:01:430:01:46

-Imagine how different

-the story would have been...

0:01:460:01:49

-..with a Conservative hand

-at the helm.

0:01:490:01:53

-A five-star hotel, naturally,

-a luxurious en-suite bedroom...

0:01:540:01:59

-..a feather bed, sumptuous towels

-and to top it off...

0:02:000:02:04

-..a private health service

-in charge of the birth...

0:02:040:02:08

-..and a bottle of champagne on hand

-to celebrate the miracle.

0:02:080:02:13

-And why?

0:02:130:02:14

-Because we, friends...

0:02:140:02:16

-..are the shepherds who protect you,

-the flock, by night.

0:02:160:02:20

-Our vision is like a shining star

-in the sky, lighting the route...

0:02:200:02:25

-..a beacon upon your path,

-leading you safely...

0:02:250:02:30

-..from the darkest night

-unto dawn's early light.

0:02:300:02:34

-We are the three wise men

-who feature in the tale.

0:02:340:02:38

-The three

-who approached the manger...

0:02:380:02:41

-..bearing gold, frankincense

-and myrrh.

0:02:410:02:43

-The three who arranged for the baby

-Jesus to escape Herod's clutches...

0:02:430:02:48

-..by driving him home

-along a brand-new bypass...

0:02:480:02:51

-..a road built, incidentally,

-by funding from Brussels...

0:02:510:02:56

-..before you,

-the residents of the Land of Song...

0:02:560:02:59

-..said Never in Europe

-to that institution.

0:02:590:03:02

-But that's another story.

0:03:030:03:05

-Onward and upward!

0:03:050:03:06

-As a new year beckons,

-I take this opportunity...

0:03:070:03:10

-..to urge you to stand firm

-in the face of every temptation...

0:03:110:03:15

-..and to keep the faith.

0:03:150:03:17

-Celebrate, have fun,

-and be joyful.

0:03:170:03:20

-But most of all,

-for all our sakes...

0:03:210:03:24

-..be blue.

0:03:250:03:27
