The dying embers?

The events of the last few weeks have been monumental. I have been out and about in Mold market talking to people in Delyn to find out what they really think, that has involved stopping people in the street and talking to them. The great thing about Mold Market is that it attracts people not just from Flintshire but from all over the country, and the views have been pretty forthright. There is a feeling of being let down by all politicians, from all parties. The events of the last few weeks leave many people thinking why arent we talking about immigration, why arent we talking about recession and the lack of help available, and why are politicians lining their own pockets at the expense of all of us who work hard and pay our taxes. They have let us down.. When canvassing in March this year on an estate in Delyn I was struck by the number of houses which had no lights on. Although I knocked on the door and expected no answer those doors were opened. Whether you can pay the next bill is the real question and that is why "it was within the rules" just doesnt wash.
