The notion that being governed directly by Old Etonians and MPs from the leafy shires of southern England will somehow be better for the Welsh people is absurd and insulting.
Proud father. Travel. Politics. Terrible sense of direction. 10 years of trying to out run a bad diet. All views are my own.
In the unlikely event you missed it - Wales didn't win their final World Cup qualifying group game last week which means they won't be playing in the finals in Russia next year.

I crawled red eyed into bed shortly before dawn last Friday. Exhausted but optimistic for the future. The Tories still the largest party but their majority gone. Strong and stable? Do me a favour. This rickety, shambolic, broken government is limping towards election defeat in the not too distant future.

We really are in a 'through the looking glass' phase of national and international politics with a dangerous growth of 'the enemy of my enemy is my friend' dogma. Self styled moderates behaving like the right. Vexed liberals coming over all authoritarian. Reactionary western nationalists having a love-in with long time foe Russia.

I don't like Vladimir Putin. All his macho posturing. His authoritarian style. His apparent disregard for civilian casualties in Syria. His ugly and clumsy approach to politics and international diplomacy. It all leaves me cold.

I'm not going to spend much (or, indeed, any!) time talking about policies because it's official - both Owen Smith and Jeremy Corbyn now agree on pretty much everything with the notable exceptions of WMD and how to solve the Brexit mess. The leadership debate was in reality an hour and a half of two fellas trying to out nationalise and out invest each other.

I must confess that a couple of years ago my passion for the game of football had seriously waned...

If you're a part of the right wing of the Labour Party, look away now. In fact, don't bother, you probably lack the self awareness to even realise it...

Politics is all about balancing passion with pragmatism, radicalism with reality but just tinkering around the rough edges of a flawed, broken system is not good enough anymore. The sooner the right wing of the Labour Party - and let's drop the pretence that they are anything other than right wingers - come to terms with this the better.

It's been the biggest political certainty of our time - a sizeable proportion of Labour MPs and like-minded supporters were always going to push, and push hard, for a swift end to Jeremy Corbyn's unlikely spell as leader.

Jeremy Corbyn is coming to a town near you and he's eating human babies. Once he's finished devouring the nation's infants he'll crash the entire economy, close the banks and light bonfires piled high with savers' cash, just because he can.

There appear to be smoking guns aplenty as far as corruption and malpractice within FIFA are concerned, but there are also lots of senior administrators within English football on some very high horses at the moment.

As the dust settles on Labour's desperately poor election showing, it's worth exploring in more detail what went wrong and what happens next for a beleaguered Labour Party. It's clear that there was no one single factor that led to the party's night of humiliation, rather a catalogue of mistakes and misjudgements that made defeat inevitable.

Despite still appearing on the list of the worlds top ten wealthiest countries, the UK is punching well below its weight where it really matters.

Has FIFA's latest offering really been the free flowing celebration of the game that the pundits and wider media would have us believe? ... has there been anything even close to epic encounters such as Brazil v Italy in '82? or France v Germany that same year?

The bastardised, rebranded version of Cardiff City were relegated last weekend and there were no crocodile tears from me.
05/05/2014 12:14 BST
As I detailed in my last blog, when I first heard that there was to be a unified anti rebrand protest march backed by all of the main supporters bodies, I was genuinely pleased but also found it difficult to suppress a degree of cynicism...

About a year and a half later than it should have happened, all of the principal bodies representing Cardiff City supporters are finally uniting in a protest calling for the restoration of the club's traditional blue and bluebird emblem.
