|Dundee Dock Development.|
at 19:32 17 Oct 2017
Just watched this on the One Show. They are having a one billion pound Dock redevelopment. The centrepiece is a fantastic museum built like a ships hull jutting out into the water.
Scotland has two major cities that attract major investment yet even a centre like Dundee can benefit from a massive development like this.
How can Wales with only 2 million less population only put its eggs in one Cardiff basket?
The rest of Wales is truly missing out massively. We cannot expect the equivalent of Scotland due to only having a 3 million population. However, even taking this into account, there seems a massive desparity between the two.

|Mental Health - Mother and Baby Unit|
at 18:25 16 Oct 2017
Anyone heard anything about this before? These are units for mothers with Mental Health issues and best serve communities by being close to them. Not centralised.
There are many scattered around the Country, including Bristol.
There are none in Wales though and a 'panel of experts' have been sitting and will issue their recommendations as to where the first Unit in Wales will be sited tomorrow.
I won't preempt where I think this will be placed but it is one to keep an eye on....
|City Deal - Another 'artist impression'?|
at 07:19 4 Oct 2017
BBC Cardiff gleefully reporting this morn that a NPT Councillor had raised concerns about the lack of progress. Has anyone seen anything happening to date?
Ominously those involved in developing the CD have said it is good local councillors raise concerns.
Who is this unnamed Councillor? I would like to shake his hand.
Could this be going the same way as the MTC, rail electrification, city centre development and the Lagoon?
Meanwhile our local councillors fret about bins and financial cut backs whilst messers James and Hedges rack up their charity coffee morning attendances.

Not much footy on tonight. I am currently watching Mr Blobby's old club Harvre AC v L'Orient. The standard seems ok.
The surprising thing though is the stadium. Superb with screens either side and a 25,000 plus capacity.
It seems Bob moved to a poorer stadium when he came to us. Albeit our crowds are much bigger.
Away side one up the moment with 30 mins gone.

Can anyone get this? I have tried retuning but to no avail.
Our good friend with his tele football guide reckons they have a few live matches on today.
Any advice appreciated.

Burnley doing us a favour at the mo. One up at Everton. Corky making a last ditch tackle before their goal.
Ash terrible and Siggy anonymous.
Probably put the mockers on this now by mentioning it....

I see Boris is still hard at work at his project of becoming PM.
He wants to pay for Public Sector pay rises by cutting staffing levels even further.
We need not fret for those losing their jobs though. The Private Sector is in such fine fettle they can take up the slack of those losing their employment .
I am sure there are still plenty of fruit picking, Uber driving and hairdressing jobs around.
Corbyn must be rubbing his hands in glee with this buffoon spouting his nonsense.

For those travelling into the City Centre from Gowerton and Three Crosses and westwards.
They are setting up 3 way temporary traffic lights in Dunvant. They are located outside Dunvant Workies on the hill, Dunvant Square and on Dunvant hill near the Hungry Horse / junction with Broadmead.
It is carnage out there now. God knows what it will be like at rush hour tomorrow morning.
It maybe something minor like road lining and they will have packed up by the morning but it is covering a large section of road. Avoid at all costs would be my advice if this lot is still in operation tomorrow.
|Two penalties |
at 08:56 17 Sep 2017
MOTD and both pundits adamant Spurs should have had two.
Does it not have to be intentional for a penalty to be given? Olsson was trying to get his hand out of the way and the trip incident had no intention in it whatsoever as our defender was trying to make up ground and not even looking at their players feet.
Both accidental and not intentional for me.

Sticking the boot into the Swansea Lagoon. They support wind farms apparently.
BBC Cardiff love this of course and gave the geezer air time before solemnly pronouncing 'this could not have come at a worse time for Swansea'.....
It ain't looking good for us. I expect the bigger Cardiff project will get the go ahead though.

|BBC Streaming scaremongering?|
at 19:25 14 Aug 2017
The One Show were on the case tonight. Telling us we face 10 years in jail if we stream certain stuff via a set top box.
It turns out one geezer SELLING the boxes has had a four year stretch.
The boxes are dangerous as well and could set fire to your house.
As many will know I am a techno idiot. What do the experts think?
Before anyone picks me up I purposely shoved this on the Footy Board because of the obvious Swans relatied interest.
|Port Talbot Prison|
at 19:34 7 Aug 2017
An interesting one on BBC Cardiff tonight. They reported that, when the UK government came aknocking looking for a prison site, WAG offered up 20!
Is this the normal procedure for public sector investment I wonder and Cardiff normally gets the lot because of its beauty and vital location in Wales?
I suspect it isn't and they only offer up Cardiff sites unless it is something unattractive like a prison. Wrexham and Port Talbot can have them...
|Marseille v Dijon|
at 20:05 6 Aug 2017
Not well, weather sh!te and stuck in house. Streams are working well ( thanks batman) so I am on the case with this one now if anyone watching with me.
First comment is the home ground looks very sexy.
|Bolton v Leeds|
at 17:29 6 Aug 2017
Bolton really are Hoof Central.
Leeds sitting back and using their passing game to hit them on the break. Pablo H pulling all the strings when creating the chances.
Bolton 1-3 down and looking very poor. Leeds fans still chanting Gary Monk's name in recognition of what he has done for the club.
The contrasting styles make the game interesting but unless Bolton up their game the will get twonked.

BBC Cardiff have been softening us up this morning concerning the location of the Trauma Unit. A panel of experts have recommended Cardiff. This despite there being another unit 20 miles away in Bristol and twice the root of eff all in the rest of Wales.
It seems that the health of the Pricipality comes second to all things Cardiff City State.
|Cardiff's Growing Pains|
at 20:17 25 Jun 2017
BBC Cardiff's 'Week In Week Out' is being aired on Tuesday night.
Cardiff is one of the fastest growing cities in Europe with thousands of houses being built. Concerns are that it is growing too fast for the transport infrastructure to keep up. Jason Mohammed is going to lead the fretting.
I won't preempt the outcome of this programme but I bet it won't be redistributing wealth and improving infrastructure across all of Wales to eliviate the problem.
It will probably be 30 minutes of promoting the billion pound bypass and the Cardiff Metro instead.
I don't even want to watch it but will probably be drawn to the effing thing like a moth to a flame.
|Chris Leslie MP|
at 10:18 10 Jun 2017
Just seen an interview with this treacherous Blairite. Refusing to recognise Labour''s achievements. Saying they should have done better
Well Mr Leslie. One of the main reasons Labour did not win was that you and your ilk have sat on the side sniping at JC since he became leader.
I hope this git gets deselected asap. The tw@t is sorry Labour have become an effective opposition after being branded as no hopers.
I detest this lot more than the Tories. At least they do what is said on the tin.

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.
|White Hart Lane|
at 23:23 14 May 2017
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.
