Left or Right? – it doesn’t seem to make any difference! – SWEP

Well, how about being the Prime Minister? Criticism from every quarter. As far as I am concerned, it doesn’t seem to matter who is in, Left or Right, it is just a matter of keeping people safe, from the Virus that is. The young are being hit now as well. This is the biggest threat we have faced since the First World War, the Spanish flu etc. I wouldn’t want the job it, that is for certain. Keir Stammer is doing his best (at the same time he has said ‘Goodbye’ to the Left of Left in the Labour Party) at least people are listening to him now. The hell of making the Virus v Economics is a battle that I wouldn’t want to partake in. That is democracy for you. Come to think of it, China seems to have got the better of the Virus, but then it is an authoritarian state, so who wants that!

Never mind, your very own Ruck, is on form. Some say I’m ‘outspoken’, I say I just speak the truth. At the end of the day, it’s for you the readers to decide.

So, what else has been happening?

I must say, whilst wandering around the Swansea streets the other day (I only ‘wander’ when I am with the missus, I refuse to go into shops with her, and all you men out there will know why), a great and joyous splash of colour shouted at me front the frontages of every shop. All shut up, at the moment anyway!

What is going on here I thought, as my eyes tried to take in all the blues, greens and yellows? The Council doing something to re-vitalise the town and give it some fighting spirit at long last. Good on them but and here is the thing, what is going to happen to the town post the Virus.

Seriously, all Swansea needs to do, is cast off the tatty clothes of the past (come to that, so does Wales generally), railway stations and Churchill and start looking to the future. A bit more of Swanseaite humour, determination and private investment and the town will be on its way.

So let’s all stop, whingeing, whining and moaning. We all must gird the loins instead and put Swansea back on the map! It can be done, the people have the courage, so let’s just get on with it.

Damn, politics does get the better of me sometimes, God forbid!

PS I have got to mention this though, have you heard the recording of a conversation between Trump and a Georgia election official? It should go on a revitalised Monty Python sketch!!! The man is crazy and embarrassing for the whole American nation.
