Too simple minded? YOUR LETTERS TO THE NATIONAL NEWSPAPER OF WALES.

SIR - RT Jones (Letters, Dec 8) asks if "True Wales" think, like some English people, that the Welsh are too simple minded to look after their own financial affairs.

It is not True Wales or the English who believe we are too stupid, but our own elected representatives in that expensive white elephant in Cardiff Bay.

We, the Welsh, have been considered too dull to vote on three issues at once, (referendum on further powers for WAG, changing the voting system to AV, and the Assembly elections) a decision backed by all parties in Cardiff Bay, costing the tax-payers, including the English, the cost of an additional day's voting during these extremely difficult financial times.

If we are considered too dull to hold an opinion on three simple issues, what chance us running our own financial affairs? Perhaps that is the point that many Welsh people, including possibly True Wales, are worried about - nothing to do with the English.
