Congratulations to Councillors Abdul Khan and Hazel Meredith, Abdul was voted on as the new Mayor of Colwyn Bay and Hazel is to be his Deputy. I would like to thank Councillor Phil Edwards, the outgoing Mayor, I think he’s had a terrific, if somewhat hectic, year and has done some great things for charities, groups and communities throughout his term in office. Good luck to all of them for the future.

Tony Blair said we will have an Asian P.M.with in 20,years. So an Asian Mayor is of no surprise we have Asian M.P.s it is all part of being British.

After listening to the News reporting the fiddling of voting at the Slough Elections it does make one wonder if any vote is 100% honest.

Congrats to Abdul Khan.

I laughed when I first saw it but it really isn’t a laughing matter. The constant growth of Islam in the UK and the appeasement shown to them by Labour is, indeed, frightening. I do not hide my hate of this religious cult, I think it is an oppressive, archaic and evil manifestation that should never be given any form of platform. The idea of a Muslim Prime Minister is too appalling to even consider.

Councillor John Oddy said...

My stance on Islam has not changed; I still regard it as a wicked, evil and antiquated religion.
I presume your attempt at sarcasm is due to my support for Abdul Khan, my support has nothing to do with religion but is based on his abilities as a Councillor and how he conducts himself as such.
I am sorry if you fail to see the difference between the two but that is your own misgivings, I believe he is the right man for the job, if I didn’t I would be as critical of him as I am supportive.

Did you vote for Mr Khan enquiring minds would like to know.

Councillor John Oddy said...

Enquiring Mind,
Councillor Paul Richards proposed Abdul Khan as the next Mayor of Colwyn Bay and I formally seconded the proposal, the vote was unanimous.

Plaid Cymru’s Communist Links Exposed

The truth behind Plaid Cymru, the ‘Party of Wales’ — that it is little more than an extremist Communist Party front — has been revealed by Wales BNP Councillor Kevin Edwards.

The link between the Communist party of Great Britain and Plaid Cymru is detailed in this report by Councillor Edwards:

“The following is the copy of an email that I have sent to Leanne Woods, Plaid Cymru AM, regarding her donation of £25 to the Communist Party of Great Britain. No doubt she will try to wriggle out of her answers when she replies.

Dear Miss Woods,

May I draw your attention to the following on the Communist Party of Great Britain website:

“Our fighting fund received help from an unexpected source this week — Plaid Cymru Welsh assembly member LEANNE WOOD donated a handy £25, which shows the breadth of the Weekly Worker’s appeal.”

The Communist Party of Great Britain are obviously very pleased to have received your donation.

I find it deeply disturbing that a prominent member of Plaid Cymru has such an affinity with such a far left wing group.

I also find it disturbing that the Communist Party of Great Britain has the following policies:

“The working class must be organised globally. Without a global Communist Party, a Communist International, the struggle against capital is weakened and lacks coordination. Communists fight for extreme democracy in all spheres of society.”

(Could you please explain to me what you mean by “Extreme Democracy.”)

“We will use the most militant methods objective circumstances allow to achieve a federal republic of England, Scotland and Wales, a federal Ireland and a United States of Europe.”

(Could you please explain to me what you mean by “most militant methods” and do you support a federal republic of Wales and a United States of Europe. Are they also the policies of Plaid Cymru?)

“Socialism is the first stage of the worldwide transition to communism — a system which knows neither wars, exploitation, money, classes, states nor nations. Communism is general freedom and the real beginning of human history.”

(As a member of Plaid Cymru do you accept that “Socialism is the first stage to the worldwide transition to communism?”

May I also ask since you accept the principles of the CPGB as your financial donation would indicate, did you follow their final piece of advice and join the Communist Party?

I look forward to your reply in due course.

Unusually enough she did reply, and agreed to being interviewed on the telephone. After a short while she admitted that she did indeed support the communists.”
