Clwyd South Conservatives!

Clwyd South Conservatives have designed themselves a brand spanking new website to promote Councillor Paul Rogers's Assembly campaign. Now I don't know the exact figure, but Clwyd South constituency has a large number of Welsh speakers in rural areas such as Cynwyd, Llandrillo, Corwen and Dyffryn Ceiriog, not to mention the more urban villages of Rhosllanerchrugog and Coedpoeth. However you will not find ONE word of Welsh on this website not even 'Ceidwadwyr Cymreig,'which is an absolute disgrace and a lack of respect towards the language and those that speak it.

We don't have to look far to see why this website is not bilingual, because it is promoted by none other than John Broughton a Brit Unionist and a True Wales activist from Llandrillo of all places. Only time will tell whether Cllr Rogers has made a tactical error in choosing John Broughton as his campaign manager because his lack of empathy with the Welsh language and culture is not exactly a campaign asset!

Don't lets appear surprised,- like his belligerent predecessor, his contempt of the welsh is indigenous.For a man who's background is Law, if his vocal contribution to WAG (were the Gods to go mental and elect him!)- is as vibrant as his contributions in the Guildhall then the WAG business will be done for the week by 11.00am every Monday! - By the way, - what does he do for a living?

Fancy...and there's me thinking he is a director of the 'Leader'? Or at least a significant shareholder?
Does he contribute vocally to anything? Perhaps we are unfair, - has he speech impediments?

He was a trainee manager in Tesco's but I think he just works there now...part time I think. Apparently his contributions to the Scrutiny Committees he sits on is limited.
