This is a copy of my response to the current consultation regarding plans to reorganise Rhondda and Tonyrefail schools, proposals which in my view are totally inappropriate. I have just sent the following in hard copy to the Director.  You have until 27th F...

Getting back to a bit of ranting - lay off my school
A request from the National Library of Wales to archive this blog reminded me that I haven't actually used it for some time. However, there is quite a bit going on at the moment worthy of a good rant and as our www.pontylibdems.org.uk website isn't really t...

RCT Cabinet broadcast shows their flaws
The second ‘live’ RCT Council Cabinet broadcast took place
today, although if you don’t follow @rctcouncil on Twitter you may have missed

Labour Council lost the plot over childcare
Whilst the Labour party at UK and Wales level are desperately
trying to convince people that they understand the problems associated with
childcare and want to do something positive about it then RCT Labour seem to
have lost the plot. Miliband is banging on...

Labour and the thorny issue of communication
What is it with the Labour party and its elected members in
this area that they seem so reluctant to engage with the public or even to pass
on their views – unless through the pages of the taxpayer funded council website
or newspaper? It has never been easi...

The Pontypridd Observer today carried a front page article
on the proposed changes to the school catchment areas for Y Pant and
Bryncelynnog schools, and the campaign to stop them going ahead. The piece continued on the inside and included comments from

Democracy the Labour way – Council chaos shows cracks.
It has not been a good week for Labour in South
Wales.   Quite apart from the usual health
stories which indicate yet again that the Welsh Labour Government cannot run a
bath let alone a country there have been some very interesting spats in a couple

Disgruntled of RCT
I have let this blog go a bit lately – far too much going on
and too little time to have a good rant about everything. That is of course the
reason I set this up in the first place – to give me an outlet for my more
opinionated outbursts, reflecting my opin...

Have Labour members got nothing better to do?
With everything that is
going on in RCT – rising council tax; education cuts; library; day centre; swimming

It is 30 years since the miners’ strike and certain Labour
party members are dancing up and down   - I
can only assume in an effort to gain some brownie points in their communities –

Your constituency should come first Mick
The twitter feed of the Pontypridd Labour AM Mick Antoniw has gone
into overtime in recent days as the Newport living AM shows his eagerness to
let the people he represents know what he is doing for them. So what has caused this flurry of activity? The anno...
