Pressure on Politicians

Pressure on politicians is mounting in Wales, as over 3000 people have signed a petition against the industrialisation of Mid-Wales.

Go to the Conservation of Upland Powys Facebook Page for daily updates.

And if you live in Wales, ask your AM candidate what his position of this issue is, and vote accordingly! In Meifod, for example, we hear, Conservative and Labour candidates supported the petition, Plaid Cymru and Lib Dem did not. It may be different elsewhere - on this single issue we need to be careful how we vote...

Having said that - one thing is pretty certain, wherever you live, don't vote "Green" because the Green Party does not any longer deserve its name, which implies a love of the natural environment. Let us hope that they do not pick up too many protest votes in council elections, mainly from people who do not realise this.
