    I would not count your chickens yet......We will still be part of the EU in the end....you can bet on it......We don't have a plan for a start other than to destroy the NHS and make ordinary folk poorer and Businesses fold with everything going up and the pound heading to be worth less than the Euro.......We wont be any closer to leaving fully 10 or 20 years from now. And that's a fact....

    Yes indeed, I was in Swansea for the first time in a very long time, really does need a complete make over, Kingsway and parts of Oxford street are in a sad state.

    They say 6 Billion is going to be spent, hope the council will not be doing the developing!!…….. <laugh>

    We have a much better natural setting than Cardiff ever had yet they are way ahead on shops and municipal buildings. It's only the marina that's better here because of the barrage, though the Bay is much more inviting with its shops, cafes and bars. This big spend is well overdue.

    I read UK is to get it's own Disney land like Florida and Paris have, imagine that built up on the Felindre site next to m4 where they had the Eisteddfod !
    It ambitious maybe but Oakwood is way out West with lower population and does well in holiday periods so even an Alton towers or some other similar tourist attraction would do very well all year and help our economy big time !
    Complete restructuring of city center areas and along the front would be great but how many middle men will take Thier cut before the actual work gets done ?

    So Martin McGuinness has popped his clogs. My take? Sometimes you have to get into bed with the devil to make peace otherwise conflict will be never ending. That said, he shouldn't be mourned because he was a thug and a killer. No surprise that vomit-inducing toads like Corbyn, Blair and Alistair Campbell are gushing today. But this Telegraph article from way back in 2001 lays it all bare. It's an eye opener:

    Total and utter bullshit
    "While both men could be extremely arrogant and uncaring about the consequences of their actions, the former Provisional said, Mr McGuinness usually tried to avoid civilian casualties in the Derry Brigade's operations"
    I hope he rots in hell

    There is little doubt that he had blood on his hands and lots of it. I understand the need to make peace but this isn't a man anyone should be mourning.

    Bury or burn him but do it quietly , although with Blair and co eulogising the saint this morning I doubt that's what will happen

    Then this from the our IRA loving footballer mclean , I wonder did he post such sentiments when yet another innocent was murdered in cold blood .

    Writing this with a heavy heart bad week just getting worse, woke to the passing off martin just now, am not going to shy away in expressing either how i feel, not only was he a hero of mine, someone i looked up to, a man that has done so much for irish people and irish peoples freedom right to the very end, he was also a good friend and someone i had the pleasure of having a good relationship with, a man i met so many times, had the privilege to share many a great conversation with, a man that always text me before games wishing me luck, a man that through the well documented tough times off the field always let me know how brave i was standing by my beliefs, that i never was alone because i had his support and backing always, you will be sorely missed martin, a great leader, a great hero and above all a great man.. thinking on all your loved ones.. beannacht agus buíochas a ghabháil leat mo chara

    I expected no less. Ask anyone who served in NI and they'll tell you about McGuinness. A mate was in the Marines and served there. McGuinness & Adams were both known murderers. Carried them out and ordered them in equal measure.
