Shame Watson got in. He sounds like a hapless fool.

Based on the general rubbish he seems to have posted on Facebook.

The Younger Watson does present a new approach to politics, he may be different style to which we are used to but maybe, that is what we need to advance from the same old same old?

It's about the 21 Gen elect really, Iwould have thought that Amanda W would have been a shoe in for this to advance her to MHK in 21? Perhaps Devon coul d now take this to give him a lift up in '21?
