A trip to Cardiff for Martyn Jones?

It seems that our MP Martyn Jones is planning to be at the Welsh Assembly Building to meet Hafod Quarry protesters tomorrow. If this is true, we wonder why Martyn needs to travel all the way to Cardiff to meet us when at least a dozen of his constituents are outside the quarry gates protesting about the landfill every morning except Sunday. No Martyn there even though it's on his doorstep. Nothing to do with the presence of the media and a handy photo opportunity in Cardiff, we hope.

We've heard that various local politicians, from councillors through to MPs and AMs, are starting to worry about their votes next time round if the Welsh Assembly allows landfill to continue at the quarry. It's all very well to make the right noises, but the people of Wrexham won't forget which politicians failed to offer real support when it was most needed.

If the Assembly does the dirty on us and allows landfill to continue at Hafod, we hope that all those Labour politicians who said they supported us will do the decent thing and resign from the Party in protest.

Is it true that Carwyn Jones will only meet four of the protesters tomorrow? If so, this Labour's latest spin to try to avoid a wipeout next May in this area... as usual it's too little too late to save their skins.

Hi all,

This is typical of Martyn Jones.he has spent years in office and done bugger all but feather his own cosy little nest.The Landfill has got him and Karen Sinclair shitting their new labour pants.This is a movement by the people and it is these people who vote in elections.
The professional politicians are scared because this could backfire on them at the ballot box.
This campaign,combined with other campaigns has exposed the likes of Sinclair and Jones for what they are,professional gravy train riders who only give a toss about their constituents when it might effect their livelyhoods.
Would you trust these people to represent the interests of the the hafod group...would you let your daughter go out with dracula.It amounts to the same thing.
Remember anything to do with New Labour is firmly on the side of big business,and these two are no exception to putting big business before the needs of the people.They may well pay lip service to the hafod cause but they will be working firmly with the powers that be to allow it to continue.

Of course Labour councillors should follow the example of their MP and resign when if the demands of Wrexham's people (their constituents)are not being allowed; in favour of dodgy handshakes and business interests of colleagues in the New Labour fraternity.
They should put their monies(office) where their mouths are.
If they resigned it would have an ashtonishing impact and would go some way show they have got spines under all that suited liver coloured jelly.

When he was asked on Wednesday in Cardiff why he had not visited the site,Martyn Jones replied "I have not been invited". I can't remember being invited either but it does not stop me going there every morning.

Martyn Jones was well aware of the protests going on at the site. There has been huge coverage in local papers which I presume he reads. If he had any real interest in the concerns of his constituents, he'd have been down at the site offering his support.

This is the man who once threw a tomato at Maggie Thatcher. What's happened to your rebellious spirit, Martyn?

Shame he took the tomatoes out of the tin first!

Maybe it wont be too long before someone does the same to him for not listning to the people.
