MR NORMAN Jones seems to have a pretty low opinion of his fellow residents of south Wales (Letters, December 6). Because a majority of us “keep voting Labour”, Mr Jones thinks we’re “ignorant”.

Perhaps he hasn’t quite got the hang of democracy?

If a majority of us keep electing Labour AMs, MPs and councillors, then who is Mr Jones to hold us in contempt?

And the great majority of school leavers are neither uneducated nor unemployable. Mr Jones, shame on you for writing off our young people.
