Who cares for centre safety?

WHAT! No seats in Newport’s Commercial Street for shoppers to take a break (Mr M Packer, September 6) and the city centre (Mr Julian R Powell, September 7) described as a scene of devastation.

I wonder if these gentlemen are aware that the Newport Labour Party is again in power and must be responsible for the further dereliction of our once attractive and very popular town. Who is managing (or mismanaging) the city of Newport and does anybody at the Civic Centre give a hoot about the safety hazards and despondency faced by Newport shoppers and traders alike? On a cheerful note, if we are to believe the latest artist’s impressions, new seats will be placed in the city’s Commercial Street some time – semi-circular in shape without backrests or sides. Looks like another safety risk!

Brian Donovan, Darlington Court, Newport

Well said Brian. Ed Townsend had a vision for the city. Sadly as soon as we have a tory gov wales goes back to its bad habit of voting labour. Hence Bobby Bright is back and wrecking the city.

Labour have been in charge of Wales for far too long. People forget that support for Newport hasn't been forthcoming from the assembly. That failing lies firmly at the feet of the Welsh Labour Goverment.

Even now the labour party has not got a working majority in the W.G. so how come it's their fault all of a sudden?
