In 1839-43, Crossed dressed "Hosts of Rebecca", men dressed as women, stormed the toll gates imposed on Welsh roads by alien road owners. In 1703 Gweledigaethau y Bardd Cwsc (Visions of a Sleeping Poet) by Ellis Wynne was published revealing his horror visions of the future. Here is one of the New Visions of a Dreaming Politician.
-Genesis 24:60 'And they blessed Rebecca and said unto her, Thou art our sister, be thou the mother of thousands of millions, and let thy seed possess the gate of those which hate them'.
HUCKSTER REBECCA CAIRNS: ‘Throw off your chains, Welsh People. I will liberate you from highway robbery by private bridge owners. I will give you the PEOPLES SEVERN BRIDGES’.
GULLIBLE TORY MOB: ‘Hooray’.
HRC: ‘I will charge you, not £6.70..........’.
HRC: ‘Nor £5.70. or £4.70...... NO. NO. I will cut it by 50% to £3.70’.
GTM: (Hysterical cheering)
ONE SMALL VOICE: ‘That’s not a 50%’ cut.
HRC: ‘….Errr. Err. No. I will go further and cut it to £3.00’
GTM: (Hysteria renewed-louder)
HRC. ‘Better still… How about £1.50…’
GTM: (Stunned into silent ecstasy)
OSV. ‘That’s still £3.00 for the People’s Bridges. Shouldn't they be free like the rest of the motorways?
