Swansea underachieves

Swansea is a mystery.

It’s less than an hour from the capital, has a beautiful coast line, a good university, a population with all the talents you could ask for, and yet it languishes.

Cambridge lies an hour from London, has an excellent university and a talented population, but no coast line. Yet it soars above the fray whilst parts of Swansea waddle through the squalor and litter of unrealised potential.

How do we turn this around?
