Speak up for Wales  

Do the people of Wales know what is in store? “The landscape of Wales is soon to change fundamentally and forever” – not another alarm cry from the anti wind farm lobby but the words of a very senior civil servant at the All Wales Planning Seminar in Llandrindod Wells on July 18.

The Welsh Assembly Government intends to make Wales the renewable energy centre of the UK by the misguided policy of infesting every hill and mountain top with Wind Turbines. Never mind that this will have a minimal effect on CO² production. Never mind the problems our continental neighbours have had in integrating wind power into the grid. Never mind that Tan8 will blight the uplands as well as the Valleys of the old coal field communities. Never mind that Wales is already a net exporter of power. The Welsh Assembly Government will have supinely done the will of their London masters, and condemned the Welsh people to this folly.

As an incomer some forty years ago, who has grown to love this jewel of a country, I urge the Welsh people to let their representatives at every level of government know just what they think of this further rape of Wales.

Secretary Swatt, Church Place, Glynogwr, Blackmill, Bridgend
