Brown started off the wrecking of pensions
Your recent correspondents in previous issues do like to twist facts.
One comments that the Tories would attack pensions when in fact it was Labour that wrecked the company pension schemes when Gordon Brown decided to raid what he called surplus funds.
ASW workers were given assurances by the Labour Government who reneged on that promise when the fund got into difficulties. This is everybody’s future we are talking about, and we should be looking for MPs who really are there to represent us and not follow party dogma or some belief that they know what we want and we are all fools who make stupid decisions.
The Conservatives promised to honour the referendum and then did everything they could to wreck it. Liberals want to ignore the voting public and they will tell us what to think. Plaid Cymru is another party that thinks the public should not have the vote and if you don’t speak Welsh you are a second-class citizen in your own country.
I see the left brainwashing our children and young adults. These are young minds with no real knowledge of the world at large, who still have an idealistic view of the world. Seems like Wales has become the second East Germany. This affects the rest of Britain in the same way and the media has stood on the sidelines and cheered them on.
Guide can help you to shop ethically
We have been appalled to find out that more than three million animals, including dogs, cats, rabbits and monkeys, are still being used in animal experiments in the UK each year, according to the Home Office.
Many people think that animal testing is banned, but that is far from the truth.
Animal welfare charity Naturewatch Foundation is doing all it can to encourage people to shop ethically. We recommend their Compassionate Shopping Guide for details of the best cruelty-free brands. The guide is soon to be available online free of charge.

More wrangling if May deal returns
Just as Parliament has managed to put Boris back in his box Aberavon MP Stephen Kinnock prepares to ride to his rescue by bringing back May’s deal.
This would mean a two-year transition period while we negotiate the terms of a future free trade deal and how, if at all, the Irish backstop could be ended.
Does he have any idea that far from uniting a divided country this would begin years more of wrangling over the terms of a deal rejected three times by Parliament?
The only way forward is another referendum, provided that the choice is between two alternatives that can be implemented – unlike the vague Leave vote which means different things to different people and has so deeply divided the country.
March to freedom
A march, a crowd of more than 5,000 people are gathered outside the iconic Red House in Merthyr. This happened on Saturday, September 7. The crowd’s vision to see a “new” Wales on the horizon.
People with different political views, some with barely none, gathered to hear the speeches and feel the mood for a new order of government for Wales.
A government to decide its own priorities, make its own policies and laws. Wales to be a nation where justice and tolerance prevails and a country to continue its welcome to the stranger and look after its poor.
The waves of change are growing, getting stronger, and will one day reach their peak… Wales will be ready for the challenge.
