This blog began life as JOHNCOXFORTORFAEN – a campaigning blog for the General Election on 7th. May 2015 – and has become a commentary on political issues from then until 2016. This was its first paragraph:
“Dr JOHN COX is a long-time campaigner for peace, green and democratic issues. He has lived in Abersychan for 36 years and served as a Councillor for Abersychan and Garndiffaith. He is a consultant engineer and has worked in over 20 countries advising governments, UN agencies and industry on green-related projects.
The blog contains thoughts on issues during 2015-16 but lapsed after I became embroiled in Facebook – a somewhat dispiriting experience as the premium is on pithy assertions whereas I try to argue a considered case. I’ve now (2019) decided to revive this blog for longer postings but, to fill in a few gaps in my thinking. I have added a few of my Facebook posts from the 2016-19 period.
