PARK CLOSED INDEFINITELY
The longer I remain on this planet, the fewer things I find to keep me here. I am in no rush to go mind, but I imagine that when I do, I shall not be troubled with what I leave behind.
In particular, I shall never come to terms with the demise of commonsense, the most important faculty bequeathed all living-surviving creatures.
What we have allowed ourselves to do is be bamboozled by so much tosh that tosh itself has almost become the new commonsense - and real commonsense has been consigned to the scrap heap.
So in my view, today was one of the greatest victories for commonsense the planet has ever seen.
First..., that the traffic cone is to remain on Wellington's heid in Glasgow and second ....., that a National Park in the Mournes has been shelved. Not parked (as in paved paradise) or reconstituted - but shelved. Returned to its small asylum cell where I trust it will see out its remaining years.
And better than that, we were able to hear The Mourne Heritage Trust get its big nose rubbed in it, courtesy of Good Morning Ulster featuring at Spelga Dam. The thing has been dumped because those with commonsense don't want it. Still, the Mourne Heritage Trust hopes that it will be exhumed and by then there will be a more "informed" debate. The arrogance is breathtaking - that any party in opposition to the silly plan, is ill informed - but when asked by the interviewer if it is just that people need to be better informed, the MHT regroups, remembers its raison d'etre and thinks it would actually rather see things "in practice" - like it and other zealots would be able to just blunder on with busy-work, wasteful, pointless jobs in the Mournes. I bet it would.
Anyway - National Park in the Mournes - good riddance to it and all views that sail in it. Would that there were more good riddances.
