Consequences

One of the consequences of the Assembly elections is that Aled Roberts will soon be standing down as leader of Wrecsam Council. Aled was elected as a regional AM for North Wales with 5.9% of the vote, narrowly pipping Heledd Fychan of Plaid Cymru among others.
It will be interesting to find out whether he intends to resign as a councillor for Ponciau as well.

I just find it stunning that this idiot can get a seat with only 5.9% of the vote.What kind of a voting system is that!!! and with a turnout of only 42% then this translates that roughly 2 people in every hundred voted for him!!!

I suppose Lindsay Whittle is in the same position in Caerphilly.

Aled intends to stay as a Councillor until May 2012 but no longer. The story in the Leader is as always for the Leader wrong!
