What's it all about...Alfie?

Why did I create this blog you may wonder? (You may not give a monkeys, wallowing away in a sea of indifference) Two reasons.

1. The economy, stupid!

Being a victim of the credit crunch and losing your job once would be bad enough. but twice in the last 7 months is a bit grating. I don't care if 'it started in America', my problem is in the UK and the government has made a complete hash of it. The private sector is being decimated and Brown's more concerned with his image as a global statesmen and making sure he secures his place sat on Obama's knee. Given this situation, I have now been given a little leisure time until I find new employment. Hopefully, I can get this thing up and running until I can once again make my valuable contribution to society and ever increasing portion to the exchequeur.

2. There is a lack of right of centre blogs in Wales

Iain Dale in his blog mentioned the lack of welsh conservative voices on the internet. Not surprising given the political make-up of the Principality but there are some of us out there, not that this blog is intended to be a mouthpiece for the Tories. I am not, nor ever have been a member of their party, they just happen to be the party that most shares my outlook on life at the moment. If they have policies which I wholeheartedly agree with I'll laud them accordingly, if I don't like the policy I shan't hold my tongue. Likewise for Labour, the LibDems and even Plaid (Though I'm struggling to recall any policy of Plaid's that ticked my boxes).


Obviously, I'm not expecting a lot of traffic here, I don't have the political or media connections of the big blogs but I will try and keep things as interesting as possible and if any readers have things they'd like to contribute let me know and I'll put it on the site if I like it. And obviously if I could get into an online spat with Dolly Draper that'd be nice. (It'll give Guido a break anyway!)


  1. I could not agree with you more.

    As a fellow Wales resident I share your frustration with politics here.

    But I'm going to keep bloggin' until this stinking Westminster government of all the liars is gone!

    Then I suppose I'll worry about politics closer to home :)

    All the best,

  2. Thanks for the comment and taking the effort to read my ramblings, sorry I haven't posted any more yet as I've been incredibly busy lately which is unfortunate as it's probably been the most monumentous month in politics for quite some time. Will have a new one soon.
