Nutt-ing doing

IS THAT the sound of sour grapes coming from Nationalist Mr Nutt (Letters, 23 June)?

He accuses local Labour councillors of being “fixated with the out-of-town Blackwood Gate” retail park.

Mr Nutt neglects to mention that it was the last Plaid Cymru-controlled Caerphilly Council that refused to agree change of use planning permission for Blackwood Gate.

And it was the present Labour-led Caerphilly Council that gave the go-ahead to a change of use, so that now the retail park is thriving, bringing much-needed jobs to this area of Islwyn.

Local people will know which party works to bring jobs and prosperity to our communities in Caerphilly county borough – and it clearly isn’t the Nationalists, Mr Nutt.

Cllr Gez Kirby, St Andrews Drive, Pontllanfraith

Pontllanfraith Councillor Kirby? The same Pontllanfraith where school Governors spent residents money on covert surveillance of one of their teachers? Stay classy.

Local people will know that neither party is working to bring jobs and prosperity to the region. The Blackwood gate retail area may be occupied but that's only because the original poundland burnt down and they needed to find new premises.

Meanwhile, the number of empty stores and charity shops in the high street continues to rise - or will labour demolish those and then use that to claim they've reduced the amount of vacant premises on the high street to a record low?

Who am I? Just a poor lost soul who was amazed a few weeks ago when Cllr Dix chose to completely ignore the shortcomings, failures and utter despair that his party has championed over the last decade or two whilst trying to earn his politicians 30 pieces of silver having a pop at the other equally useless bunch. One of the masses who are fed up of the lies. That's all. Just me.

Cllr Dix is a lone wolf within the Labour party, who will never get any cabinet position. His loyalty lies with himself and not his party.
