Regeneration

Killing Fishguard

An ice-age scar, a Group 1 IARC carcinogen and funding an Arts delusion (later, replaced by some Deutsche Bahn AG gobbledygook) ... and not the Conti family, are the three coordinates of a triangle whose angles add up to a problem whose lowest cost solution is to wreck the market town of Fishguard. That Fishguard cannot get its head around the causes of its 27 year dose of economic dysentery, which, for each of those years, has left retailing smaller and weaker is testament to the intelligence of a small cabal and their incestuous tightly controlled organizations which fielded a never ending vomit of propaganda on behalf of their, hoped for, benefactor: PCC, who just happened to be ... "secretariat to the Pembrokeshire Partnership Management Board (PPMB), the body that oversaw Objective 1 funding in the County" and, later, the buyer of a logistics hub for intergalactic travel – well, something like that anyway … not that a bit of long division and a note about abstraction wouldn’t clarify the reality of incinerating £10,000,000 in less than 7 years. Regeneration is their code-word for euthanasia … which means, some how, regeneration will dissolve and absolve the issues of paragraph one … “they” have explained all of this, over and over and over, but as a road map to Shangri-la. Didn't the reader notice the town’s most recent death knell being rung ... two banks have abandoned ship (no, not Halifax and Santander - Lloyds and HSBC), and a local supermarket has greatly down-sized its floor-space - hardly signs of a market town about to recover any time before the next asteroid hits. So, little chins up, keep taking the blue pills, and have your antennae tuned for the next “regeneration” broadcast from PCC or its paid operatives.

Transport Lunacy?

Big Roundabout

Work to dismantle Fishguard as a market town began with the ripping-out of the town centre's attractive roundabout (pictured above) and its replacement with the current piece of junk.

Cascading Collapse

Following on the heels of Santander, Lloyds and HSBC pull out of Fishguard, and Barclays is closed on a Thursday (Fishguard's thriving market day - according to the town wrecker's propaganda).
