A Cause for Concern in St. Davids


Am having a splendid time with my wife and youngest daughter in the beautiful west Wales city of St. Davids. Plenty of bracing walks, fresh (very cold) air and good food. The cathedral here is fantastic and even for the wretched sinner like me it is worth a mooch about. Off to see the ancient megaliths tomorrow and then heading home for teaching at Ruskin this weekend.

Despite the rest and good times here, it has been quite depressing to read the coverage of the perfect storm of austerity measures which came into being yesterday. There are changes now being implemented that not even Thatcher would have thought of.
The good news (for some at least) is that even the Tories themselves expect a sound kicking at the country council elections in May. Have a look at this story and follow the links to related items: http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2013/apr/01/conservatives-county-council-elections
