A special meeting about Britain’s future in Europe is being hosted by MP Simon Hart. this evening (Thursday).

Following nationwide interest in the subject, Mr Hart felt it was time to tackle the subject head on.

“The recent European election results, which saw anti-Europe parties increase their vote, shows that this is a topic which is causing much debate at the moment,” he explained.

“Anyone is welcome to come along to hear Simon Hart's views on Europe and immigration and to take part in a question and answer session.”

The meeting will be held at the Queens Hall at 7.30pm today, Thursday, July 10.

It might be electioneering Cymru bach but it was refreshing to see an MP holding a public meeting. As expected it was packed with elderly Conservative voters all concerned that David Cameron had failed to tackle the withdrawal from the European Union . One person actually argued for staying in Europe because it had prevented a war in Europe.
Simon Hart seemed worried after many informed him that they would not be voting conservative at the next election, unless David Cameron held a referendum on withdrawal before the election. Simon Hart tried to convince those attending that by voting UKIP it would let Labour in but the UKIP representative informed the meeting that UKIP was gaining as many Labour voters as Conservative voters.

There is only one reason SH held this meeting, and that is because there is an election in 2015 Malcolm. SH would go to the opening of an envelope now if it meant him getting his picture in the paper. I do not believe he cares for anything other than trying to get re-elected. You only have look at all the rubbish he puts in the papers.
People will not be fooled by it.

As an older person, I do question participating in the process of a referendum on a matter where I wont have to suffer the outcomes, whatever they are.

It is a fact that this county has received very significant grants from the EU, probably in excess of our contribution to its coffers. Can anybody work this out?

Is it likely that the council with the lowest council tax in Wales would have invested in the county if funding was not available from outside?

This is very true. I often wonder what state our towns and roads would be in without eu funding. Westminster would let wales rot. The tories would obviously be the worst but they are all the same. I hope that eventually the people of wales get a chance to exercise real self determination and have a referendum on full independence like the lucky jocks have. Until then we just have this shower of c#*?s

Purely in the pursuit of balance you understand. Torys and uKKKips feel happy enough to be xenophobic about everyone else.... They don't like it up 'em. ;-)

Fair enough H-I, I just find prejudice whether racial or otherwise distasteful.
