Actions speak louder than words

“LEADING figures in the Tonyrefail community have joined forces to have their say on the future of their beloved town.

More than 100 people from local schools, community groups, churches and businesses took time out to read a new report by Owen Smith MP and Mick Antoniw AM on how the town can increase footfall, be promoted and boost its sense of community.”
This was the beginning of an article which appeared in the local press on 22nd March 2012 – oddly enough just as the Council election campaign started to get under way properly.

As far as I am aware very little appears to have happened since.  Although there was an apparently chance encounter between Mr Antoniw and Tonyrefail traders in September as reported in the Rhondda Leader.  After that slight run in the Pontypridd AM had to quickly get in touch with the Council and come back with a statement no doubt prepared by our favourite story teller Hans Christian Hanagan.
His colleague and co-author of the report Owen Smith made similar noises at a public meeting in Pontypridd some two years ago when he talked of a new forum for traders and residents in the town there.  Nothing has come of that either.  Yet more cynical politicking by Labour’s not so dynamic duo?

You know - You are so bitter and full of self righteous venom that it is no wonder your party never gets in!!!

And you are so sweet, hiding behind your anonymous tag. Cowardice a common problem with some around here though ;-)

Is it not time to ban Anonymous posts? That'll stop stupid remarks and uncalled for personal attacks.

Sometimes anonymous posts are necessary when dealing with vindictive and obsessive people such as yourselves.

Sometimes it allows them to show themselves for what they are. Sticks and stones and all that.

Message to Anonymous - Who's vindictive now eh? Yeah, I'm obsessive about anonymous idiot remarks. Put up or shut up.

Gentlemen, please, maybe you could take your slanging match elsewhere. I have enough abuse of my own to deal with.
