Don't vote us back on a slippery slope; LETTERS.

SIR Eric Howells of "True Wales" has accused Nick Bourne the Tory leader of supporting a Yes Vote in Thursday's Referendum because of the money.

AMs will be paid the same salary regardless of the referendum result.

As a professor of law Nick Bourne would earn much more outside politics than he does inside politics.

When Sir Eric was chairman of the Welsh Tories, an adviser to William Hague stated that if he had received a pound for every request from Tories to join a Quango he'd have been a millionaire.

Then Wales was governed behind closed doors by these unelected Quangoistas receiving fees of up to pounds 600 a day.

Sir Eric, as Tory chairman, was in a prime position to recommend which unelected Tory should occupy those Quango seats.

A No vote on Thursday could well put us back on the slippery road to that Quango state.
