I know I know I KNOW THAT THIS IS A GHASTLY BUSINESS but every so often we have to roll up our sleeves and reach into this sewerage in the hope of unblocking The Political System in Wales ... Unfortunately we do not have a brain drain so much as a series of unconnected holes being dug here and there - all over the place - into which is tipped the local piss and shit ... we are as a consequence not so much lost for turds as reluctant to take the piss ... after all : where the hell would we put it all ... oh - Cardiff Bay ? ...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Welsh_local_elections,_2017

Welsh local elections, 2017 - From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

[ MY THANKS TO https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Number_57 ]

" Local elections will be held in Wales on Thursday 4 May 2017 to elect members of all 22 local authorities, including the Isle of Anglesey, which was last up for election in 2013 due to having its elections delayed for a year. ...The last elections were in 2012. Normally these elections take place every four years, but the 2017 elections were postponed for a year in order to avoid clashing with the 2016 Welsh Assembly election, which itself was postponed by a year to avoid clashing with the previous year's General Election."

Number 57 cites this Welsh Government research paper -

http://www.assembly.wales/Research%20Documents/Local%20Election%20Results%202012%20-%20Research%20paper-17052012-234009/12-020-English.pdf

" In 2012, councillors were elected unopposed in 98 of the 1,223 seats (8.0%) where elections were held. "

[ NOW THAT IS A STATISTIC WHICH INTERESTS ME BECAUSE IT SHOWS HOW LITTLE FAITH THE DEMOCKERATS IN WALES AND WESTMINSTER HAVE IN THEIR ANTI-POLITICAL SYSTEM WHICH DIVIDES OUR SOCIETY INTO THEIR SECTARIAN FIEFS DEMANDING TRIBAL LOYALTIES - THE NON-POLITICAL SYSTEM WHICH THEY DO NOT CALL THE DISUNITED KINGDOM.]

" Local elections took place in 21 of the 22 Welsh unitary authorities on 3 May 2012. The exception was the Isle of Anglesey, where elections have been postponed until May 2013. All figures in this paper are for the 21 authorities where elections were held in 2012 and do not include the Isle of Anglesey."

[ WHAT HAPPENED IN YNYS MON DESERVES A THREAD ALL TO ITSELF ]

In 2012 - South Wales became a One Party State ... and Wales in 2017 ?

Labour & Cooperative Party - held 577 seats - controlling 10 councils

Independents ( of no party ) - held 293 - controlling 2 councils

Plaid Cymru ( Nationalists ) - held 158 seats - controlling no councils

Conservative & Unionist Party - held 105 seats - controlling no councils

Liberal Democratic Party - held 72 seats - controlling no councils

[ WHAT I LIKE TO THINK IS THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT INDEPENDENTS AS OFTEN AS NOT WILL TALK OF THEIR CONCERN FOR " THE PUBLIC INTEREST " ... THE BAD NEWS HOWEVER IS THAT THEY DO NOT HAVE A CLUE WHAT THAT ACTUALLY MEANS - AND SO THEY ARE HORRIFIED WHEN I SAY " OH - SO YOU BELIEVE IN THE " RES PUBLICA " THEN ? " * ... THE LEVEL OF POLITICAL EDUCATION AMONGST THE DEMOCKERATS IN WALES IS SO LOW THAT WHEN THEY COME TO PUBLIC MEETINGS THEY COME IN THREES : THE FIRST IS ABLE TO READ OUT THEIR PARTY'S DECISIONS TO THE PEOPLE - THE SECOND IS ABLE TO COUNT THE VOTES OF THE PEOPLE IN THE MEETING AND THEN TO CARRY ON RECOUNTING THEIR VOTES UNTIL THE PEOPLE ARRIVE AT THE CORRECT RESULT - THE THIRD IS ABLE TO PRESCIENTLY WRITE DOWN THE CORRECT DECISION BEFORE THE MEETING AND SO IS ONLY THERE TO KEEP AN EYE ON THE FIRST AND SECOND IN CASE THEY EXPRESS ANY OPINIONS OF THEIR OWN WHICH DIFFER FROM THE DECISION - OR EVEN WORSE START TO LISTEN TO THE PEOPLE AND THEREFORE RISK OF BECOMING EXPOSED TO A POLITICAL EDUCATION.]

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* My favoured strategy for a " Plaid Y Repwblic " is that micro-parties should campaign for individual council seats -

Given that we have just witnessed a budget that once again favours the richest over the poorest I suspect that the issues in this local authority election are going to centre on the deep cuts being made by The Docrats in Wales in their council budgets and then blamed upon The Democrats in Westminster as if it would be making any difference if their own party had " control " and were " in power " in Downing Street. It would not make a jot of difference because The Demockerats merely compete to be the ones allowed to run the non-political system which is claimed to be " A Constitutional Monarchy." Let us sort that nonsense out here and now at least - The United Kingdom has neither a constitution nor a monarchy : any examination of it in terms of its history, the exercise of power over it or the private sectarian interests which it serves reveals it to The Aristocracy in ... well - ever since the 18c it used to be overseas tax-havens such as in The Carribean - but now their wealth seems to be migrating into virtual tax-havens located in encrypted cyberspaces ... Princes Charles, Camilla & Co have now all but declared themselves to be The Republicans in The Royal Family and are preparing to lead The Right Sort of People in The Correct Sort of Revolution ... Meanwhile The Metropolitan Police have been instructed by The Bank of England to investigate whether The Queen is really an illegal immigrant because her face does not seem to match the one which appears on their banknotes and coins : it is important that nobody has any doubt about any of the government's issues.

... Anyhow : here is a suitable issue -

Looking over election material distributed in the valleys ... no wonder so few people can be bothered to get out and vote ... so : what is on tv tomorrow ?

The polls are about to close and since voting is essentially meaningless besides an expression of sentimentality towards the images presented before you - e.g. cast your vote for Mickey Mouse, Snow White, Cindarella or The Beast according to your private delusions - and of course we have this week seen a lot of The Democrats in France and so The People in Wales have been trying to find " Le Pen " on the ballot paper and complaining about " Le Pencil " ... Personally I think that the BBC's coverage is intended to pave the way for The Conservative & Unionist Party to claim that three wins in a row entitles them to declare themselves entitled to proclaim a dictatorship ... And likewise The Labour & Cooperative Party will declare the same as their basis for independance for Wales ...

Voting / Smoking - both difficult to give up ... that substitute for real political nourishment which just leaves a - oh ... well here is some good news : the second largest body of elected people look suspiciously like Republicans : the " Independents " who reject being manipulated like ventriloquists' dummies by party managers - who bother to listen to the voters and are motivated by a sense of The Public Interest - whose organisation resembles what I advocate : the " micro-party " meeting over cups of tea and hobnobs - and discussing what is going on in their ward, that their task is to unseat that complacent councillor who has his snout in the trough ... you do not need to adopt the word " Republican " because it is after all The Natural Law and would be our instinctual way of doing things if our natural instincts had not been so warped by The United Kingdom : not so much a real country as an unreal state of mind ... but ... if you do accept the identity of " Republican " you identify yourself with centuries of all of the best in political philosophy and the moral and ethical standards which are taken to be the norms of civilisation in other political systems - and which are absent from the non-political system not called by its supporters The Dis-United Kingdom.
