M4 around Swansea
at 12:44 18 May 2017

I see our esteemed transport adviser to WAG is spouting off in SWEP again.
Stuart Cole, whilst supporting and advising on a billion pound motorway around Cardiff, does not see the same need for us to have a 6 lane motorway. His answer? More buses because our congestion is due to local traffic. The exact same problem that causes rush hour delays at Brynglas. No surprise that the now Cardiff run paper''s editorial agrees with this.
This guy is a sham and has money for old rope. He should get off is ass and advise on a transport policy for the whole of Wales for that is what he is paid to do in his advisory role.

All this fuss about playing the last game there.
Surely if the pitch is only moving half a length then it is a ground development not a movement? For me it is still WHL with four new stands. Similar to Deepdale.
Much ado about nothing, albeit zillions are being spent.

NHS cyber attack in England
at 17:01 12 May 2017

The Tory's lack of investment in Public Service chickens are coming home to roost. Old systems can't cope with such attacks.
Not in Wales at the moment but I fear for systems here as well. Anyone tried using My Health Online? I find it a right bloody mess.
More such attacks in the Public Sector are likely imho.

Channel 4
at 11:14 11 May 2017

It would seem that as part of moving media around the UK from London that Cardiff is now being considered for housing Channel 4.
A Cardiff AM raised this point in FMQ today and it was met with full support from Carwyn and he trumpeted the virtues of such a move.
I find it amazing that if such considerations as this are being made then why don't WAG offer up other alternatives?
We have studios in Swansea, Llanelli, Caernarfon and Bangor so why aren't other areas even being considered.
Seems like the Cardiff media giant, already the third largest in the U.K. Is about to get bigger.....

What has happened to our flying winger who can beat the best if em on his day?
Personally I think Jeff is Donald Ducked along the lines of poor Ferrie.
Feel very sorry or him. I know many will call him up in holes but his injury is one of many things that did not go for us today and thereby preventing us getting 3 points.

National Kitchens.

Just seen on BBC One that these are being reinacted all across the U.K. They were used in the First World War when people were so poor the could not feed themselves.
The answer is to use recovered food that was going to be dumped and feed people in
large groups. Initially it is just for historical significance but could be looked at for use in this day and age.
This sounds like something right up Brexit Street. I recall the Man Utd supporter who voted Leave because he 'wanted to get back to Dads Army days'. Looks like his wishes may be coming true. ;-)

BBC Cardiff preparing us for some bad news it seems. Despite initial optimism it appears it might be placed on the back burner again.
It would have been easy to miss. It was way down the pecking order. They were far more interested in dissing Plaid for an alleged bullying AM.

The Brynglas tunnel billion pound bypass.
at 18:53 1 Mar 2017

Apparently the Enquiry has heard that 'traffic can slow to as much as 20mph at times'.
20mph?? Huge swathes of our motorways come to a complete stop at rush hour.
This backs up what I have always believed and that is it is no worse than any other rush hour pinch point. Better in fact.
The twinning of the Heads is the Valley will take a lot of traffic off this section of the M4 once completed.
This is a shocking waste of funds and now they are even discussing the biggest road tunnel in Europe to alleviate the environmental issues.
You really can't make it up. Spunking zillions on a stretch of road in an area that already has the best infrastructure whilst the rest of Wales is transport wasteland.

City of Culture Bid
at 11:31 19 Feb 2017

St Davids are in for it as the smallest city ever to bid. Guess who else is going for it? Effing Cardiff!! As if they have not got more than enough cultural infrastructure investment already.
Anyone know if we are resurrecting our bid of are we going to sit on our hands and let them up the road win the prize?
I hope whoever decides this year kicks them into touch. Surely under invested Cities, like Hull and Swansea, are far more deserving causes.

Labour's transport announcement.
at 09:00 4 Feb 2017

They intend to rectify the imbalance in transport investment between the North and the South of England. They intend to get rid of the idea that what is good for London is good for the whole country. Sound familiar?
It is another example of how the Party is completely at odds with it's version in Wales. It is one reason why the former gets my vote yet I would not touch the latter with a barge pole.
Maybe our next step should be to let JC know how completely out of touch Complacent Carwyn and Co are with his policies.

Link above (I hope).
I Usually hate Christmas records but this one is just the right balance of festive feel and a decent message IMHO. Also a cameo from the great man Dylan Thomas.
Helen Love are a Welsh band who have been around for years but I have never heard of them.
Hope it appeals to some fellow jacks.... And the download is for charity :-)

1.5bn extra WAG infastructure spend.
at 18:56 24 Nov 2016

Apparently this lot is coming to Wales via Westminster so BBC Cardiff immediately look at crumbling buildings. Where do they go? Some poxy disused railway station in Cardiff. Even had that Tory Welsh Govt Minister standing outside the eyesore.
Forget about Mumbles Pier. Palace Theatre, Elysium and the Albert Hall. Drayford already has his eyes on chucking large chunks of this at Cardiff.
They did mention the A45 in passing where the local councillor said it would be nice if it had drainage, proper approach roads and a hard shoulder! They truly are an investment backwater up there.

Local Government Reorganisation
at 14:44 2 Oct 2016

We have 22 Local Authorities for a population the size Manchester Council's. Leighton Andrews made a mediocre attempt to reduce it to 8. Still far too many IMHO. He lost his seat and Carwyn appoints Drayford to look after it. This was the guy in charge of Health who used to hide behind his assistant every time a media response was needed on bad news and there was plenty of that.
Anyway Drayford rips up the Andrews' blueprint and says he going to do more consultation with the LA's.
This seems now to be completed as the his solution is to do nothing and encourage Authorites to work together and voluntarily merge on their own if needed. A typical cop out.
It seems LA reorganisation is too big a task for Welsh Labour in their 15 page document for the next 5 years. Plaid have not come out of this smelling of roses either as they have put their name to the document.
Seems like the status quo is here for the long term with the squabbling divide and rule of the LA's a suitable background for WL to carry on supporting their Cardiff bubble agenda.
