This has come through from Powys County Council and should be of great interest to all voters in Brecon and Radnorshire (which is This Writer’s home constituency):

So there you have it.
Obviously, I would advise every voter in Brecon and Radnorshire to sign the petition so we can get rid of this criminal and vote in somebody who might actually take the job seriously.
If you are not a voter in Brecon and Radnorshire – but know somebody who is – please advise them in the same manner.
I’ll try to keep you all updated on this latest erosion of the Conservative Party’s Parliamentary membership.
