Whilst we are on Ebbw Vale there are things going on with the proposed race track that are ringing alarm bells very loudly. So far no work has started. They have already had at least £2M from the assembly and are looking for up to another £100M from the assembly, The claimed 6000 jobs looks to be more like 600 with the majority being part time and casual jobs

Haven't seen 100 million mentioned anywhere, 10m million is though and 50 million projected to be put back into the Welsh economy, sounds like a no-brainer to me. Now Bob go on the racetrack thread and tell us all about who should be heading this music festival.......some people any chance to be negative.......he must have too much time on his hands..........retir
ed I bet.....
