TO USE the elegant words of Ken Brown, Newport, as a proud Welshman, I have no wish to have the laws that govern me made by a bunch of unelected, overpaid, egocentric, self-serving, inward looking little Maggie Thatchers that I am unable to remove from power. Like Scotland, Wales have never voted for a majority Conservative government who closed Welsh pits, introduced the poll tax and now the bedroom tax. Under a Tony Blair Labour government, Wales never had a vote on whether to invade Iraq or to be Robin to the USA Batman when it comes to crime fighting around the world. In doing so, Wales and the rest of the UK have become more of a target to the terrorist attacks.
