Gauke to quit when Johnson wins. Plenty of others who may not wait to be sacked. More Tories who won’t countenance a no deal scenario on the back benches. If they hadn’t stitched up the timing so well, Johnson might not have lasted a week. As it is he may make it to September purely due to the fact that Parliament won’t be sitting. Next week is going to be fun.
Watched this on BBC1 Wales last night. A very good documentary about the rise of Welsh nationalism in the run up to Charles’s investiture as Prince of Wales in 1969. Covers the FWA, Gwynfor Evans, the flooding of the Tryweryn valley and of course MAC and John Jenkins. Very good watch if you’re interested in that sort of thing.
So where’s your money? Bear in mind that whichever dweeb you vote for if you had a proper vote (which you don’t unless you’re a member of the Conservative Party. Taking back control) is very likely to be the next prime minister of the UK. As terrifying as that prospect is when you look at the list.
The Swans’ Trust notes the resignation of Huw Jenkins. Mr Jenkins deserves credit for his part in the Swans’ rise to the Premier League and for that the Trust thanks him.
However on the occasion of his resignation we must also point out, once again, his involvement in the way the sale of the football club to its current owners was conducted, as well as the continuing negative impact of that sale. It is also important to remember Mr Jenkins’s culpability for the disastrous transfer dealings of the past three seasons, which are the main reason the club is in its current position. For these reasons, change was inevitable and necessary. History will decide Huw Jenkins’ place in the annals of Swansea City.
The Trust also notes the club owners’ pledge to work with the Trust to identify Mr Jenkins’ replacement. The Trust remains prepared to talk to the club’s owners about any subject at any time.
