Nato no thanks

First published in Letters

CARDIFF and Newport Buses are to be messed up for weeks on end because of the Nato summit.

It is a scandal, old and infirm people will have to walk long distances often in pain to catch their buses.

Who asked the people of Wales if they wanted the Nato summit here? Wales is not a member of Nato.

We will not be represented there. What has it got to do with us? This meeting is being held in Wales to boost Carwyn Jones’s ego and so Cameron can show Wales is still part of the United Kingdom before the Scottish people vote YES for independence in September. Cameron well knows that once Scotland has gone, Wales will not be far behind.

All this disruption is not need and not wanted. We do not need or want this NATO meeting here. How many millions of pounds are being spent on this conference? How come the Tories in London and New Labour in Cardiff Bay can find millions of pounds to waste on this ego trip? How come they are cutting health and welfare budgets whilst they can spend millions on grand dinners for the international elite?

It’s time Wales was a free country and conducted her own foreign affairs for the benefits of her people.

It’s time we had a real government of Wales that served the interests of the Welsh people. Not Carwyn Jones’s pathetic puppet government controlled by London politicians of both the New Labour and Tory Parties in London.

K Parry, Cardiff

Just think: if all the workers organised a mass strike for the NATO week then we could really remind those who are supposed to be our democratically elected representatives of the true power of the people.

Strike for what? Because YOU think it's a good idea? Well I work and I don't.

Keith, you are a persistent fellow with all this nationalist separatist nonsense. The real worry is you actually believe what you write.

This man's a master of producing statements without any evidence to support them, he wouldn't let the facts get in the way of a good letter!

1. What evidence does he have that old and infirm people will have to walk long distances often in pain?

2. Who asked the people of wales if they didn't want the summit here? where is the evidence that this summit is not wanted here?

3. Scotland voting YES we'll wait and see but I think not. If 100% of Scots voted for independance Wales still wouldn't be interested. Has he seen how many people vote for Plaid Cymru - The Party of Wales!!

4. If Wales was independant it is highly likely that the government would be Labour so why does he think that they would not hold the summit here?.

He needs to wake up and smell the coffee, devolution has been a disaster, independance would be the final nail in the coffin.
