Spent a couple of hours this morning handing out leaflets in Ponty town centre about Labour's plans for the Lido. Nobody I spoke to seemed to realise that the plans mean the loss of the existing paddling pool. But then why would they, it hasn't been mentioned in any of the Council's press releases.
And of course they had Russell's word on it before the election didn't they? People thought it was 'all sorted.' So did Owen Smith MP, according to his remarks in his June Pontypridd Observer column. He is going to be left with a bit of egg dribbling down his chin. Any chance of his next column condemning his Council colleagues for lying?
And what of Slick Antoniw? Where does he stand in this? Well nobody is quite sure, he hasn't mentioned it, but then living in Newport he probably doesn't realise just how much locals value the paddling pool.
Nobody I met this morning said the paddling pool should go, people were appalled at the idea. Now many of them will have been the same people who voted Labour in with an increased majority in May. They were taken in by Labour's lies then, and will unfortunately have to live with the results.
