According to the newspaper(s) I read a Welsh town – Merthyr Tydfil – is full of nitwits. Actually a slightly different good-old word was used. Well, whatever. It is a town run by the Labour party? I don’t want to tell you my opinion, it is already well-known. The Labour party is an anachronism and far removed from what is was set up for. So, Merthyr we now know is full of Labour nitwits? Right, that’s put that to bed. Good o'l Methyr.
Speaking of politicians and political parties, the shenanigans performed now on a daily basis in Westminster has made me accept that the above statement about nitwits is basically correct, there is no solution to Brexit. Mainly because too many politicians have forgotten who they represent. Although I voted to leave the EU on the basis made by a certain Mr Cameron who did, in his words, reform Europe which was and is needed badly; it became obvious we were fed whopping lies. However, now the good Boris (Mr Johnson to you) seems to get more of a grip we might see Parliament kicking and screaming put back in the straightjacket. The Speaker will be gone because he alone has been culpable of the mistakes many make and that is feeling he is above everyone else. No mate, we sitill have a Queen. So, it is anyone’s guess what we will end up with. If the upcoming election will get the Conservative party a decent majority, well and good. If not, we will simply continue with the rubbish we see now. Or it might turn out as another coalition. Although the differences between the parties are extreme, if the Brexit party gets 10 or 15 MPs we might have a coalition comprising the Cons and the Brexes. We are in interesting political times. Even so it might turn out that the Labour party will be able to govern as a minority party in a hung parliament. In which case join the queue at the ferry terminal in Dover. If Labour gets a whiff of power we will end up as a pre-60’s socialist state, possibly worse than Russia or Venezuela today. It is one of the reasons I think we need a strong royal family just to keep it all together. So, stop your warring, brothers!
We need to ditch provincial assemblies because we have seen how this ends up. Calls for independence despite possible financial break-down. We would save billions. Boris my friend, just ditch them, send them home, no pension, no pay-out, no certificates. Good riddance. Next have a look at power needs. We need ever more power, electricity in particular. Support the sciences so that we will find new ways of generating enough to keep the lights on and factories working. Furthermore clean-up, clean-up our attitudes to waste, clean the seas, stop the discharge of foul water (sewerage) into our coastal waters and deal with the enormous mountain of plastic floating around almost everywhere. Indeed, we must or we go under. Pob hwyl i gyd!
