Disgusted of Llandrindod Wells


‘Assembly is expendable’

“The Scots are likely to become agitated at any suggestion of closing their parliament, but they should be made to pay for it through local taxes. The Northern Irish assembly is hard to scrap, but the Welsh assembly is expendable, as is the London one.”

So says squeaky windbag Quentin Letts in the Daily Hate Mail today.

He also refers to “…those assemblies in Wales and Northern Ireland which are so easily mistaken for the call centres of an insurance company.”

The sad thing for Welsh democracy is that the Welsh people – those not professionally involved in the political process – might not necessarily make a fuss if the Assembly were to be abolished.

Opinion Poll regarding Welsh Autonomy

Law-making Welsh parliament with tax powers in UK: 34%
Law-making Welsh parliament with no tax powers in UK: 10%
Independent Wales outside UK but in EU: 8%
Independent Wales outside UK and EU: 5%
Status quo: 21%
Abolish assembly 19%
Don’t know: 4%
Source: BBC Wales/ICM poll

SO THAT’S A TOTAL OF 81% OF WELSH PEOPLE WHO WANT A WELSH PARLIAMENT, TO KEEP THE WELSH ASSEMBLY AS IT IS, OR INDEED INDEPENDENCE FROM THE UK

OR A TOTAL OF 19% YES! 19% WHO WANT TO ABOLISH THE ASSEMBLY…DOWN FROM 49% AT THE 1997 VOTE.

SO I’M NOT SURE WHICH WELSH PEOPLE YOU ACTUALLY CANVASS…UNLESS IT’S JUST RIGHT-WING TORIES AND UKIP VOTERS
