So the Welsh Assembly elections are done and dusted.
what are we going to do about the above?
Roll over and let it happen?
I have never written to an MP, but am willing to give it a go.
Labour said once the elections were finished they would implement it. If they do it will be a disaster.
Can we get all our Welsh members to Lobby MP's? I can't remember enough names to tag everyone but I think you can @Blod remembering our get together over a year ago. Getting email addresses for MP's is easy enough, but perhaps a concerted effort would have more effect?
Your thoughts please.
Thanks.

The NFU sent out postcards for all members to sign and send into the assembly. We sent about ten in from here. Well worth sending an email to your AM and the environment minister whoever that may be now....

Just read that our AM, Elin Jones has been elected as presiding officer at the assembly. I'm not sure if this gives her more or less sway but it does come with a nice pay packet of 105k

When is Wales going to get a rational government? We are stuck with would-be populists who cost a fortune and do SFA of any use. Labour have made a cock-up of all they have touched and Plaid are barking.

AND TODAY... the Tories and UKIP are backing Plaid to lead the assembly! Good to see the back of Carwyn Jones, but the pact from hell?

Is this a new one - I thought it all was done and dusted a few years ago. Nothing in the press....
It was kept quiet, there was a consultation last year, most of the people I spoke to hadn't heard about it. I did email a response, it's on here somewhere, and I got a reply, asking if they could use my comments. But I think in my original email I requested to remain anonymous, you just don't know how some of the more extreme members of the public will respond!

I remember now - I wrote something about how we have to be so bio secure and then allow anyone who has been anywhere all over the farm, and what insurance would they offer is someone tripped on a bramble? I dont think I had a reply apart from thanks.

Something along the lines that I wrote, although I did also say that I could appreciate them wanting to pass on their costs of their schemes to get Wales fit to us farmers;)
