‘The UK referendum vote to leave the European Union (EU) may have had as much to do with people’s distrust of international organisations as it did fear of immigration.’
Here you have it, according to the University of Kent. Brexit is all about who you trust on immigration. So, let’s leave it there shall we? I’ve had enough of Brexit per se. Well, Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party is in a bit of a spot, MP’s leaving right, left and centre. And he’s carrying on as if nothing has happened. What have I been saying about politics?
Now, I was walking around Carmarthen the other day. What’s he doing walking about this town for? Swansea Jacks should stick to Swansea for heaven’s sake! Anyway, I was struck by the cosmopolitan aura of the place. Shops selling all in sundry and superstores waiting to bite the consumer on the backside. All fair game in this day and age. There were coffee shops selling beans of all description and stalls selling you bankrupt stock all at reduced prices.
It was a maze of sell or die amusement.
I couldn’t help but compare it to Swansea City’s pitiful example of a concrete wasteland stuck on the edge of a sharpened knife. Beauty and the unbearable beast that no one can tell me where it has come from – well the War might have had something to do with but who knows? The parking is something out of a horror story and the one-way system makes you wonder if you are going potty!
Swansea is a mess.
Why doesn’t the Council do something about it? Don’t tell me – it’s skint. It always has been. For the past 60 years it has been short of funds and I’m well past that age now. Get your act together and do something. Make Swansea City an attraction, a place to be. Get tourists in to view the delights of a Welsh landscape. Well, fat chance of that but one can at least try!
Swansea City needs a rejuvenation of spirit, a need to go on. Let’s try and make it work, at least in something other than a concrete block or a bland shop front.
It can work, you know. Creativity with a blissful soul is the answer to my prayers – I’m getting all American now, so forgive me!
