Well there’s another kick in the nads for Swansea. Another broken manifesto promise. Just waiting for them to pull out of the “city deal” now. They’ll announce the cull of the firstborn next week, just after the plague of locusts they’ve got planned!

By the way, waiting until the day of the Heathrow 3rd runway debate, to try to bury it under “bigger news” is so brazen it’s f*****g disgraceful. Shows exactly what they think of us.

I suspect we could be about to hear a "good-news-story" of magnitude never heard since the Leisure Centre opening all those decades back in 1977 i.e. some new doggie litter bins for Victoria Park!

Whilst I understand your sentiment, surely we are not making the most of it and could develop it into something better than it is now?

Three points:

1) It’s the right decision if the company were trying it on (and apparently they were).

2) There should have been an option to go back and tell them (or someone else) to revise their business model.

3) We need to find a way of using tidal energy, be it current turbines, lagoons, whater. We’ve some great expertise in the UK but poor government policies mean we’re in danger of losing it - https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/jun/19/huge-mistake-britain-throwin

The Conservatives know they will never benefit from investing down here with the way the voters blindly tick the Labour box year in year out regardless of policy or past performance and when asked why the only answer they have is my grand father did.

The years of utter hatred in these parts for the Conservatives is being shoved down our throats by them and who can blame them.

Very funny watching Carolyn Harris on the news complaing of the lack of commitment to West Wales from the Westminster Tories after the way Welsh Labour made the disgraceful decision to place the Major Trauma Centre in Cardiff,fecking hypocrite.

I think the lagoon should have been planned much bigger and situated from West Cross to the Mumbles Pier, creating a new permanent beach area where the water's edge would hardly move, instead of it disappearing out of sight as it does now.
It would certainly have been worth millions in Tourism with water sports as well.
it would not have attracted much at the old Docks end of the bay.

This part of the world truly has the worst bunch of tribalistic donkey voters! Too thick to ever punish Labour and way too stupid to vote tactically.

Yes indeed if this part of the world had a fair percentage of marginals you'd see far better commitment to us all i.e. the parties are then forced to please this region whether they like it or not.

Basically tribal Labour loyalty has an end result whereupon the population is relentlessly treated with contempt and forever ignored. The Tories ignore us out of spite and Labour does the same because it realises it can get away with absolute murder! Punishment never occurs at the ballot box. Oh, and Labour donkey voters will always blame the Tories for guilty Labour policies/incompetence and appalling Cardiff bias anyhow.

There you go people of Swansea, it's your own fault for not voting Tory.

Do people hate the tories because they screw us over, or do they screw us over because we hate them?

A few points:

Personally I believe the lagoon would have given a massive boost to the area, from little acorns etc the area would have benefitted on a massive scale with a positive knock on effect in many ways.

Putting the above to one side however, listening to some odious Tory on the news earlier (Alain Cairns I think) breaking the figures down to £50 bill for the lagoon (or group of lagoons) and £20 bill for a nuclear plant with the same energy output. If these figures are a true reflection them there doesn't seem to be any argument.

Why oh why then has it taken years of debate, cost on a huge scale of feasibility studies to come to what is a fairly obvious conclusions and surely could have been wrapped up years ago.

According to Cairns the Welsh Gov didn't even argue today with the decision!!!! Why the fu *k then were they willing to offer a £200 mill sweetener to try and ensure it was given the green light!

As dodgy politics has won the day and as ever Swansea has missed out. Very , very sad.

No one has said that and you know it,it's the blind donkey voting from the last 70 years that has done it.

This could have been a massive, much needed boost to the region.

Take the piss out of our football team if you need to, that’s rivalry and it’s part of football. Keep your silly little jibes out of matters that don’t concern you though.

Genuinely fantastic news. Our glorious, geographically authentic bay, will stay glorious. Get out and enjoy it in this weather.

The scheme was a fraud from the start, I feel sorry for the people who've lost their jobs working for this joke of a company and the people they fooled with their bullshit PR which was lie, after lie, after lie.

I’m not sure this is such a bad thing, it seems to me it was an experimental gamble, if it had paid off there were obvious benefits and other regions would have gone ahead with it on a larger scale.

Had it not paid off we could have been left with an expensive white elephant which could have caused more harm than good.

We would have been used as an experimental guinea pig.

With all the choice of beaches we’ve got around here, would anyone genuinely get out and enjoy the docks?

It quite likely is the best decision for the UK as a whole, I don’t think it is for Swansea though

What worries me isn’t the loss of the lagoon project per se, but the probable loss of other projects and developments that this would have led to or would have been complimented by.

If we liken Swansea’s economic future as a whole to a stool, supported by 1. Rail electrification, 2. The tidal lagoon, and 3. The city region deal, then after having two legs metaphorically kicked away, the future is looking decidedly less “strong and stable”.

I wouldn’t be surprised now if the whole city centre development collapses.
