Good vox pop on Radio Wales Phone-in today.
The great majority of callers were thrilled by the Opening Ceremony. Some air-heads did not. They are better off watching the formula shows where everything is repeated twenty times. Saturday night shows have infantalised a large part of the nation.
Former Tory Rottweiler MP Rod Richards joined the discussion in the studio. He has lost none of his bite. He called me a 'Bolshevik" and was at his snarling worst in raging at the absence of Margaret Thatcher from the Isles of Wonder. He had a rant against trade unions. The bitterness of his absence from the Commons has entered his soul. Withe Tory ineptocracy due for judgement in 2015, Welsh seats disappearing, there is no way back now.
The significant CK Chesterson quote was lost on the brain dead. 'The world will not perish from a loss of wonders but a loss of wonder'.
