The Roberts Report


This video, much like the Tories in Wales, has absolutely fuck all to say.

As expected, the Roberts report reveals that the Tories are about as progressive as a stick in a bucket of shit when it comes to the question of further devolution for Wales. The conclusion of the review on Conservative Party policy towards Welsh devolution is that there should be a review on, er, Conservative Party policy towards Welsh devolution.

Such dithering on devolution was to be expected. This is after all the party of rabid Brunstromophobe David Jones, Arch-mentalist and leader of True Wallies David Davies and the even more obscure Stephen Crabb. Clearly the views of the party's AMs and its leader in the Senedd are of no consequence. We can now look forward to seeing just how subservient Tory AMs are to David Cameron, and just how irrelevant they are to Welsh politics.

You say "Brunstromophobe" like it's a bad thing? The man (Brunstrom) is the original weapons-grade cock-end.

That's because it is.
You say potato, I say Brumstrom's a cunt.

Let's call the whole thing off!

Fair enough. But I actually live in North Wales, and it's thanks to Brunstrom that the North Wales Police have been transformed from being perceived as a mistrusted army of occupation to being a very effective, efficient force that has the respect and trust of people in North Wales, Welsh and English speakers alike. What the likes of Jones and the cretinous Tami don't like is the fact that Brunstrom actually respects Wales and has addressed the needs of the local population, and not just the incomers.

Welcome in the hillside: a misery memoir by Sperm Lewis, it is.

I was born in Rhondda Cynon Taff of parents and we lived in this cottage, see, and it were 'ard, Dieu, it were 'ard. Our mam eventually got pissed off with making everybody's tea, see, so one day she just got up and walked out. And after our mam walked, out our dad thought we were missing her, see. So what he used to do at teatime was to put on a our mam's dress and our mam's wig and serve us our rarebit dressed as our mam to remind us of our mam, see. Only he'd just come back from his shift, see, so his face was all black and he was wearing our mam's wig, so us kids weren't fooled for a minute. Mind you, it was a nice thought and our auntie Nesta said there's lovely. But then one day, our dad must have got pissed off with making everybody's tea, see, so he fucked off too and us kids were left on our Jack Jones for a week cos there were no social services in those days, see. Anyway, eventually auntie Nesta found us roasting the dog and thought we were missing our dad, see. So she used to come in at teatime and go upstairs and come down in our dad's dungarees and our dad's Humphrey Davey with the light full on and serve us our rarebit, dressed as our dad see, glaring around like a fucking cyclops she was ...
That's jolly good, sperm ... want to give it a full airing? :o)

Apologia

Your humble Devil apologises for his lack of posting: it has become increasingly difficult to actually put quill to vellum, as it were.

It's not purely that the political situation is rather uninspiring, it is also that I have become very much out of the habit of writing (about politics, at least). As such, every time that I fire up the blogging screen, I feel an incredible weariness.

I asked Pete to blog here because I thought that contemplating the actual mechanics of leaving the EU was important: I wanted to know, as much as anything. My reasons for voting Leave are actually very similar to Pete's, i.e. the rebooting of democracy and power structures in this country: however, he has a knowledge of the intricacies of the technical aspects that is beyond mine and I thought these worth setting down, here, for the record.

I shall try to post a little more frequently going forward. But, please, be warned that the reasons for eschewing this format haven't really gone away. My…

Gove's legacy?

Michael Gove has, quite honourably, said that it was right for Theresa may to sack him as a minister...
"I had six years when I was a government minister. I had a chance to make a difference - I hope that I did."The reforms that Michael Gove made in his time as Education Secretary will come to be seen as the most significant improvements to the British education system since the late 1800s—particularly in the introduction of Free Schools.

Gove made a difference—and his contribution should never be forgotten.
