Blame Labour

THE Labour Party is very good at playing the blame game. Whether after more than over 10 years of a Labour government in London blaming Thatcher, or more than over 15 years of a Labour government in Cardiff Bay who wasted two lots of European funding, but blames the short-term Tory government. Leaders of the Labour Party have said they would be making similar cuts.

The National Assembly for Wales Enterprise & Business Committee, which included five Welsh Labour AMs,was encouraged to think differently about supermarkets and that “anchor stores” should not necessarily be seen as a local win. That councils should use their powers to protect local high streets. Blackwood Gate has opened a Poundstretcher, which is not a new company as it was burned down in Blackwood High Street. With Lidl and Home Bargains a food shop, hasn’t Blackwood got enough food shops? While Home Bargains are mostly a white goods shop similar to the old Focus shop.

I don't blame Labour. I blame myself. I was one of the many who for years voted for the Reds blindly thinking their way had to be better. It'll get better. It'll get better. I've had my eye's opened over the last few years by the steady stream of decisions handed down by Carwyn and the Crazy Gang. The full realisation of what Gordon and Tony left us without as a country may never be known fully, but i know one thing.....NEVER AGAIN.

Being a Labour voter all my adult life I will never ever vote for them again, the tragedy that is the WAG the millions they have wasted their shocking record on just about everything they do, inward investment, infrastructure health, you name it they have stuffed it up.

The tragic scenario is they have a very real chance of winning the next election.

Remember people, Socialism=poverty.

When UKIP win the next General Election, it will pass laws making the Labour Party an illeagal organisation. When the legislation is passed all Labour MP's s, MEP's and Councillors will be arrested on charges of being members of an illeagal organization, and not be allowed to take their seats.

After Labour , the same will apply to the Conservative, Liberal, Plaid and SNP. If Scotland has voted yes then troops tanks etc will stage a full scale invasion to reclaim Scotland as an English colony.

UKIP will also pass a law making it a criminal offence not to vote UKIP

Welshmen, you've just made me spit my tea out. 😂😄
BobEvams2014, you are the master of the hyperbole. Yet you are not far from the root of the troubles. Disaffection with out of touch politicians who refused to listen to a public who were starving, out of work and with no sign of change was some of the things that brought about the party you allude to and gave them the power. They say history repeats itself. Well watch this space. You think it's bad now that we have millions of immigrants filling our hospital beds and claiming our benefits. Wait until Serbia is allowed to join the Magical kingdom that is the EU. Serbia is bankrupt as a country. Which country is the best destination for giving free healthcare and benefits without having to pay in first. Well done Bob. Go to the top of the class. Except you can't get into class because there are 30 nationalities already in there. THIS IS THE REASON UKIP IS GOING TO GET VOTES IN 10 MONTHS TIME. BECAUSE NOBODY LISTENS AND LEARNS THAT WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF BEING TREATED LIKE SECOND CLASS CITIZENS IN OUR FIRST CLASS COUNTRY.

Personally I would kick them all out yesterday, but credit where it is due.

They have managed to **** it up worse than the W.R.U and that takes some considerable effort.

. Mr Nutts is at it again, in the weird world of Plaid its ok for Bargoed to have out of town development ( Morrisons) but its not ok in Blackwood. The people can see through Plaids lies and childish behaviour , no wonder they came a poor third at the by election. Plaid have nothing to offer other than failure. In by election Plaid made a lot of nosie about the future of Pontllanfraith offices , yet all the Plaid members on PR and scrutiny voted to close Pont office , say one thing and do another is Plaids golden rule

Bargoed got one food store & Spar, while Blackwood has many food stores. Why would Labour cllr Dix deprive Bargoed of one good shop. Lucky for Bargoed the other Labour cllr's don't feel the same way. Dix you are just greedy, the enterprise is so far out of town and would only be visited by locals and people who can drive. Labour was against any scheme like these that are "out of town" and don't link with the high street like Morrisons do. You don't know local planning do you, all mouth and no knowledge, that a bad combination for a Labour councillor that is just keeping his seat warm for a Plaid councillor. Labour was expected to win the bye-election, as they always do well when there is a Tory government.
