Smith’s sack­ing should be re­versed

Cynon Valley - - YOUR VIEWS -

WE learnt that Owen Smith has been sacked, for writ­ing in an ar­ti­cle about a sec­ond ref­er­en­dum.

As I un­der­stand it, he has been sacked as a min­is­ter, but he is still a very good MP for Pon­typridd, as I am given to un­der­stand it, Owen Smith has the sup­port of other MPs.

I fail to see how this is demo­cratic, that he should be sacked, and this should be re­versed asap.

I am in favour of a sec­ond ref­er­en­dum; I took my vote very se­ri­ously, I must ad­mit, to be­ing bored out of my skull with the whole cam­paign, I was in­flu­enced by some­body who then voted leave. I voted to re­main. (Was my vote cor­rect? I don’t know.)

It is ob­vi­ous that the in­for­ma­tion from the Welsh As­sem­bly, and from our MP in Rhondda was not lis­tened to.

In fair­ness we were told to re­main but we voted to leave.

All our fund­ing in Wales comes from Europe, or most of it, I don’t think that the di­vorce set­tle­ment to leave Europe, was men­tioned in the cam­paign, money for the NHS was men­tioned, but now we learn that we will be pay­ing for our di­vorce set­tle­ment, for years to come.

So will we be any bet­ter off for leav­ing? Farm­ers’ money needs to be guar­an­teed. I think the price farm­ers get for their prod­ucts should be guar­an­teed. Farm­ers should get a good price for milk. Richard Shurey Tony­pandy
