Giving it to you straight Jeff Jones; Viewpoints.
At first I thought it was someone else, as the photograph looked nothing like that of the sombre Jeff Jones who writes a column in our local paper.
Coun Jones was highly critical of Cardiff Bay's successful regeneration but forgot to mention his own spectacular failure to regenerate Porthcawl.
When residents rejected his plans to give control of our town's future to the WDA, he threatened to sell off our land to the highest bidder.
Jeff believes the Welsh Assembly's new debating chamber will not 'attract many people into the area', but tried to persuade us his idea of a visitor attraction was a new supermarket on Porthcawl's seafront.
I urge the Labour Party not to nominate Jeff Jones for a seat in the Welsh Assembly. If he were to be elected, he would stop attacking those already aboard the gravy train, and without him to prevent it, democracy would come to Bridgend County Borough Council.
Former Independent Town Councillor, Por thcawl.
