Which side are you on, councillor?


Councillor Nick Colbourne thinks he's too important to join the people of Ruabon and Johnstown in protesting about the Hafod quarry. His blog makes it clear that he won't be joining the morning protest - because he thinks that there's a conflict of interest between being a magistrate and representing his ward, which happens to include the Hafod landfill site.
Cllr Colbourne has made his choice clear - he rates being a magistrate as more important than being a councillor. He is standing aside from a battle where people's health is being put at risk. If that's the case, councillor, it's time to let someone else take your place who will listen to his electors and stand shoulder to shoulder with them.

Yeah, move over Councillor Colbourne. You carry on hobnobbing with your posh magistrate friends. Don't worry about us. Sure we can find someone who's really interested in our lives, our health and our kids.

Hey, Hafod!
Didn't realise you were writing about this too. Never mind. It needs saying so why not say it twice?

Crossed wires again Bren! It's the only chance we get to see old Nick so we might as well put his ugly mug up there for his electors to see. Will he come down to Cardiff to tell his Labour chums in the Assembly to revoke? Or might that be a conflict of interest with him being a Labour wannabee...

I have it on good authority that Carwyn Jones is going to allow the Hafod landfill to continue. I propose that your campaign considers its next move in the light of this impending decision.

A Cardiff well-wisher

Apparently Carwyn Jones has agreed to "discontinue" the activities but says any compensation will have to be the responsibility of Wrexham. Who is putting this about? As far as I am aware nobody is asking for any.... are they providing a ransome note for possible claimants??? Please don't use this as an excuse for refusing to revoke.

How strange... Cllr Nick Colbourne and Cllr Gareth Griffiths both have blogs that encourage people to comment - just like this one. But, unlike this blog, both are now refusing to put up fair comments criticising them. Funny old world!

That would be a different conflict of interest than the one about being a magistrate AND chair of Wrexham County Labour Party then?

The Unknown Worrier!

If you look at his blog (but promise you won't post anything nasty in the comments) you'll see that Cllr Colbourne has got all sorts of conflicts of interest. Has he declared a conflict of interests with the little people who are fighting Hafod (i.e. his constituents)?

Oh dear, I think Councillor Colbourne has found the comment button.

The people who run this site are bigots. They delete posts that disagree with their point of view.
