I go to press today before the result of the Labour Leadership vote is announced. I reckon Jeremy Corbyn will be elected – and, if I’m right, that’ll change things appreciably.
He seems to be the kind of chap who will pay attention to what local people want, rather than send commands “down” from Wasteminster and ensure us grass-roots folk carry out our orders.
It’s been said again and again that The Labour Party (which Corbyn will, I’m sure, resurrect from the ashes of “New Labour”) will be unelectable. Well, not until The Labour Party gets back to its original principles and then teaches the working-class who they are.
Perhaps Mr. Corbyn will listen to the case for an independent Wales . . .
I had a call from a friend in North Wales telling me that a python had gone missing. Straightway, I wondered which one it was: Clees or Palin or whoever!
Fortunately, it’s a non-venomous snake which is wandering loose in the Wrexham area. If you see it, don’t even think of doing a Funny Walk!
A Welcome Statistic
There’s been a 10% drop in deaths and serious injuries caused by road accidents. I don’t know the whys and wherefores of that drop but, as we come to the end of the holiday season, it may be that more drivers from our Eastern neighbour have realised that we in Wales drive on the same side of the road as they do in their own country.
