SO, more words of wisdom from yet another Newport Labour supporter, as Mr. Dave Humphries (Argus 4.1.13) tries to convince the people that Newport Labour-led councils are not responsible for the disgusting state of our once excellent city.

With the decline of heavy industry, during the decade of Newport Labour’s misrule, the city centre was “pedestrianised”, denying access to businesses, including the renowned Westgate Hotel and the historical and popular Indoor Market etc.

The Newport Labour council managed to find funding for the proposed and failed River Usk Barrage. Surely, some of the barrage fund could be used to save the Pill Millennium Centre!
