It's time for a change - Residents of Merthyr Tydfil need a voice!
All donations will be used to put towards a "fighting fund" for the betterment of all of Merthyr Tydfil - for her residents and her unique and colorful history.
For far too long we have tolerated the Labour stranglehold in Merthyr Tydfil. They have become complicit in the knowledge that they have no real opposition and can do whatever the like, with no real consequences to their actions. The recent visit of the police to an upstanding member of our community on behalf of the council as was a final straw and something needs to be done.
The fact that the council even tried to stifle free speech and freedom of expression is an extremely worrying mind set in Merthyr Council - "if we don't agree with it, you can't say it". It's a direct attack on our very freedoms and our rights. I agree that with rights come responsibilities and those with power have a moral obligation to wield it for the betterment of all. This whole situation is a vile abuse of power and position and without someone to hold them to account for their failings, where will it end?
There have been numerous issues locally with our council - hiring a private company to provide litter wardens/bullies, the whole issue with the broken down car and the parking fine, the issues with recycling - need I go on?
Labour think they know better than how to run our lives. Not once were we consulted – only told what to expect. We are sick of the Council trying to micromanage everything we do and a we need something to fight back against the injustices they hurl at us.
