  • "A scrap! What fun. We haven't seen one of those for a long time in Newport.
    It's usually "solidarity" all the way brothers (and sisters!!!)
    Labour councillors in the soup. Acting against planning procedures and likely landing Newport with the incinerator or eye-watering costs when the inspector makes the decision for them.
    In the past we would not know the brothers had fallen out, but thanks to tiresome social networks we can all view the histrionics of spoilt men as they bat back and forth, their prejudices.
    Miqdad-Al_Nuami, being an educated man, has taken a view on the incinerator, whereas Evans and his like are out to make a name for themselves.
    After all, there's no point in being little fish in a big Labour pool. The new crop, with no political experience whatever, are desperate to make their name and fight the old guard, who are strangely silent.
    Hannon's comment is just nonsensical. He needs to act like a deputy chair and not a spoil boy and accept that Labour campaigned on the incinerator when they should not have done. Planning is NON-political - or that's what we've been told.
    Keep up the exchanges though, it's brightened my day.
    If Labour's majority was small, this wouldn't be out in the open. Well done Argus!"

Newport councillors in Twitter spat over incinerator

First published in News South Wales Argus: Photograph of the Author by

TWO Labour councillors have taken to Twitter to argue over the rejection of plans to build an incinerator at Llanwern. The spat between Miqdad Al-Nuaimi, councillor for Stow Hill and Rogerstone member Chris Evans began after Cllr Al-Nuaimi voted for the plans despite his party's stated opposition to incineration.
