Llais Gwynedd's hit list


It hasn't been a great couple of weeks for Llais Gwynedd councillors.
First Councillor Louise Hughes was thumped in the chest in the street by an unknown man for advocating a prison in her area - apparently he was concerned it would attract criminal elements (like himself presumably).
Then her colleague Gwilym Euros Roberts was arrested at a Blaenau Ffestiniog hotel at 7am after allegedly assaulting his wife and a man who was with her. The man in question was Cllr Dylan Richards, a fellow town councillor Gwilym defeated in the county council elections.

Fatboy's wife had obviously decided to play her own version of "Snog, Marry, Avoid"

Politics is bust whatever the colour of your rosette.

I'm afraid that this seems to me to be a very mean spirited. The first story only has a very tenuous link with Llais Gwynedd policy (and besides, as far as I know, Plaid Cymru also supports a prison in North Wales - they certainly do in Anglesey) and the second is purely a personal matter.

By all means take on Llais Gwynedd on their policies - but this post mocking two people for their personal misfortunes is below you and Plaid Cymru.

Druid,

All we are doing is reporting the facts. We are not criticising the prison, although in my personal opinion Tonfannau is a completely inappropriate place to locate one. We support a 750 inmate prison in North Wales.

There is nothing mean spirited about this blog they are reporting the facts. Very similar I suppose when LlG villified Dafydd Iwan in the press for parking in a disabled spot, was that mean spirited?

Interesting that the Tory/Rogersite Druid is sticking up for Llais Gwynedd.
The Cambrian News thinks it's news, so do we.

It is mean spirited because you state "It hasn't been a great couple of weeks for Llais Gwynedd councillors". Neither of these stories really have anything to do with Llais Gwynedd at all. Two people, who happen to be Llais Gwynedd councillors, have suffered great personal misfortune - there are no political points to be made here.

Plaid Whitegate - I'm not sticking up for Llais Gwynedd (why whould I? I live on Anglesey) and would write the same comment if the tables were turned.

I think that a confident Plaid Cymru wouldn't feel the need to comment on or report these personal incidents.
