Hi Phil, thanks for your support, the Greens are already jumping on the band waggon see below
the problem I've got is that as far as I know I'm the "only MAG member in the village" so I'm are going to need all the help I can get.
I'm going to try my best to get the the next Cardiff Mag meting to rally support, but in the mean time pleaseALL of you to start complaining to the Vale Council about this, the greens are already telling them how wonderful this idea is , we have got to act fast to try and stop this before its too late, mark my words if this crazy plan gets the go-ahead its going to spread thought the region.............you have been warned !!!!

This is one we must go for Mike, I'm in total agreement. What a nonsense!
I'm not sure it'sworth anyone living or working outside Glamorgan writing
to their Councillors & MP about... perhaps best target your own area. What
do others think?

This is the 1st time this list has been used to my knowledge. Is it
sending to all?
(avalanche of replies?)
