Labour leader calls for action over chief

Published

on

paul millerAT a public meeting last night (Aug 19), concerned Pembrokeshire people were urged by Cllr Paul Miller to ask their councillors to taking action against Bryn Parry-Jones.
The Pembrokeshire Herald caught up with the  Labour leader at the County Show, who said: “There has been a lot talk and speculation in the media about the future direction of the council. Lots of people are angry about whats been going on, and this was the chance to talk to me and ask any questions of me about the situation. The only thing that is going to change the thinking of the council leadership and force them to act is the public coming together and making their voices heard. The Pembrokeshire public need to lead this campaign, and make sure we get real change for the county.
Our correspondent asked Cllr Miller how the meeting went last night, and he said: “We discussed the scandals which  have plagued the council over the last few years, including Mik Smith, Bryn Parry Jones’ pension, and the recent accusations in the press about Bryn Parry Jones conduct in office.”
When asked if the meeting was a success Cllr Miller replied: “Yes, there was tremendous support for action from the public, over one hundred attended, and I have every confidence that the public will force change in Pembrokeshire County Council.”
He added: “There were lots of people with questions, and lots of people were angry about what has gone one. There is a feeling that people are being ignored.”
What are the next steps.
The Labour group on the council is today calling for Bryn to be formally suspended, not just to be enjoying additional paid holiday, and for the formal disciplinary process to be started. This will investigate the numerous allegations.

    I would like to congratulate Cll Miller on how he is sticking up for the people of Pembs in this matter and displaying some socialist principles.

    Compare this to the Labour leader of Carms CC who appears supine in the face of similar issues.

    The Labour Party in Carms should be quite embarrassed about what is happening and how they seem to be propping up a psudo Conservative administration with the indies.

    The Labour Party in Llanelli especially really need to think about how they are representing proud local people most of whom are Labour to the core. How can they explain the pension support given (unlawfully according to WAO) to one of the best paid people in the county while there is so much deprivation in and around the town.

    Well done Paul Miller on hosting an informative meeting yesterday. I would encourage all those residents whom are fed up with the current council regime to follow this guy via his website. He represents a new transparent, productive future for Pembs County council.

    If Paul and his colleagues make accusations about Bryn as returning officer they REALLY should report him to the authorities not just try and slag the IPG off and call them undercover Tories so he can become MP

    Another successful event by Cllr. Miller. A new generation of Councillor’s like Paul is what’s needed in view of recent events at County Hall. It’s good to see a dedicated Councillor like this fight for the people of Pembrokeshire and try and right the wrongs of the Independent Group. Such vast sums of public money should be there for the public purse and not in Bryn’s back pocket. What is Jamie Adams thinking of when services are being cut that this is the best way forward to spend public money?
