When a Welsh Tory Assembly Member (AM) asked the Welsh Government questions about UFO sightings over the Cardiff airport and other parts of Wales, the Welsh government chose to answer in the fictional language of the villainous alien Klingons from the TV series Star Trek.
Tory Assembly Member (AM) Darren Millar, for Clwyd West, addressed three questions to Edwina Hart, the Minister of Economy, Science and Transport, about claimed UFO sightings and the Welsh Government’s response to the reports.
In response to the questions, the Welsh Government replied, “jang vIDa je due luq. ‘ach ghotvam’e’ QI’yaH-devolved qaS.”
The translation of the Klingon language text being, “The minister will reply in due course. However this is a non-devolved matter.”
“It is believed to be the first time the Welsh government has chosen to communicate in Klingon,” the BBC commented.
Surprised at the trivializing response to his inquiry, Millar retorted, “I’ve always suspected that Labour ministers came from another planet. This response confirms it.”
