Phil Sumbler - who we know already is standing down as both chair and board member. Andrew Mcglashan Rupert Thomas Viv Brooks (who resigned from the board some time ago) Tim Bull (who left the board some time ago) And my own. I’m not due to stand for election until next year but I’m standing down now so I can be replaced at this election. Time for someone else to have a go.
Fill yer boots. Exit poll at 10pm, all hope gone by five past, or mass celebrations depending on your perspective.
My prediction, Tory majority of 50 plus.
My hope, the hungest of hung parliaments leading to a second Brexit referendum in the spring to end the madness one way or another. And then another election next autumn hopefully with two different leaders at the helm.
Gauke to quit when Johnson wins. Plenty of others who may not wait to be sacked. More Tories who won’t countenance a no deal scenario on the back benches. If they hadn’t stitched up the timing so well, Johnson might not have lasted a week. As it is he may make it to September purely due to the fact that Parliament won’t be sitting. Next week is going to be fun.
Watched this on BBC1 Wales last night. A very good documentary about the rise of Welsh nationalism in the run up to Charles’s investiture as Prince of Wales in 1969. Covers the FWA, Gwynfor Evans, the flooding of the Tryweryn valley and of course MAC and John Jenkins. Very good watch if you’re interested in that sort of thing.
So where’s your money? Bear in mind that whichever dweeb you vote for if you had a proper vote (which you don’t unless you’re a member of the Conservative Party. Taking back control) is very likely to be the next prime minister of the UK. As terrifying as that prospect is when you look at the list.
