No representative from any other party has any influence on any of the committees.
Dictatorial and unrepresentative YES.
If elected I would call for an urgent Independent Investigation into the sinister workings of Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council.

Labour threw open Britain's borders to mass immigration to help socially engineer a "truly multicultural" country, a former Government adviser has revealed.
The huge increases in migrants over the last decade were partly due to a politically motivated attempt by ministers to radically change the country and "rub the Right's nose in diversity", according to Andrew Neather, a former adviser to Tony Blair, Jack Straw and David Blunkett.
He said Labour's relaxation of controls was a deliberate plan to "open up the UK to mass migration" but that ministers were nervous and reluctant to discuss such a move publicly for fear it would alienate its "core working class vote".
As a result, the public argument for immigration concentrated instead on the economic benefits and need for more migrants.
Critics said the revelations showed a "conspiracy" within Government to impose mass immigration for "cynical" political reasons.
Mr Neather was a speech writer who worked in Downing Street for Tony Blair and in the Home Office for Jack Straw and David Blunkett, in the early 2000s.
Writing in the Evening Standard, he revealed the "major shift" in immigration policy came after the publication of a policy paper from the Performance and Innovation Unit, a Downing Street think tank based in the Cabinet Office, in 2001.
He wrote a major speech for Barbara Roche, the then immigration minister, in 2000, which was largely based on drafts of the report.
He said the final published version of the report promoted the labour market case for immigration but unpublished versions contained additional reasons, he said.
He wrote: "Earlier drafts I saw also included a driving political purpose: that mass immigration was the way that the Government was going to make the UK truly multicultural.
"I remember coming away from some discussions with the clear sense that the policy was intended – even if this wasn't its main purpose – to rub the Right's nose in diversity and render their arguments out of date."
The "deliberate policy", from late 2000 until "at least February last year", when the new points based system was introduced, was to open up the UK to mass migration, he said.
Some 2.3 million migrants have been added to the population since then, according to Whitehall estimates quietly slipped out last month.
On Question Time on Thursday, Mr Straw was repeatedly quizzed about whether Labour's immigration policies had left the door open for the BNP.
In his column, Mr Neather said that as well as bringing in hundreds of thousands more migrants to plug labour market gaps, there was also a "driving political purpose" behind immigration policy.
He defended the policy, saying mass immigration has "enriched" Britain, and made London a more attractive and cosmopolitan place.
But he acknowledged that "nervous" ministers made no mention of the policy at the time for fear of alienating Labour voters.
"Part by accident, part by design, the Government had created its longed-for immigration boom."
"But ministers wouldn't talk about it. In part they probably realised the conservatism of their core voters: while ministers might have been passionately in favour of a more diverse society, it wasn't necessarily a debate they wanted to have in working men's clubs in Sheffield or Sunderland."
Sir Andrew Green, chairman of the Migrationwatch think tank, said: "Now at least the truth is out, and it's dynamite."
"Many have long suspected that mass immigration under Labour was not just a cock up but also a conspiracy. They were right."
"This Government has admitted three million immigrants for cynical political reasons concealed by dodgy economic camouflage."
The chairmen of the cross-party Group for Balanced Migration, MPs Frank Field and Nicholas Soames, said: "We welcome this statement by an ex-adviser, which the whole country knows to be true."
"It is the first beam of truth that has officially been shone on the immigration issue in Britain."
A Home Office spokesman said: “Our new flexible points based system gives us greater control on those coming to work or study from outside Europe, ensuring that only those that Britain need can come."
“Britain's borders are stronger than ever before and we are rolling out ID cards to foreign nationals, we have introduced civil penalties for those employing illegal workers and from the end of next year our electronic border system will monitor 95 per cent of journeys in and out of the UK."
“The British people can be confident that immigration is under control.”
At last the truth is out !
For years that the population of the UK has been " Socially Engineered " by the Labour Party and the others to produce a " multicultural nightmare " against the will of the British people and " WITHOUT OUR CONSENT ! "

Jobless figures hit 16-year high
Unemployment in Wales rose by 24,000 in the three months to August, bringing the total figure to 130,000.
The latest figures show that the jobless rate has gone up by 1.6% during the quarter, which is by far the biggest increase in the UK.
That means the unemployment rate in Wales now stands at 9.1%, with only the west Midlands and the north east of England higher.
The last time unemployment in in Wales was this high was in 1993.
Across the UK the figures rose by 88,000 to 2.47 million.
British jobs for British Workers.

For the few of you who didn't know what the " Justice for Linda Lewis Campaign " is all about. Well here is the sickening and terrifying truth !
“If God is for us, who can be against us ?” (Romans 8:31)
Bonnie Lewis Kidnapped By The State They Gagged UK Column And No2Abuse On This Story Copy And Paste It All Over The internet
"Bonnie Lewis Kidnapped by the State. Investigation into the scandalous abuse of a young girl by the Neath Port Talbot State Child Protection Machinery."
"For the record "Bonnie" is not the real name of this unfortunate child, now adult. The "Justice for Linda Lewis Campaign" do not want to subject her daughter to any to any further torture. We believe that Miss Lewis's daughter has suffered enough torture already at the hands of people who should have been there to help and protect her." Kevin
As Social Services get power to section parents as mentally ill - why every parent in Britain should be fighting for the safety of their children and Family Courts that are open to the full Public scrutiny.
Sick, in constant pain, and frightened after months of medical incompetence, 12 year old Bonnie Lewis was deliberately and deceitfully taken from her mother by Port Talbot Social Services.
Probably to meet government fostering and adoption targets, which reward Councils. And to help the NHS cover up medical blunders.
This true story is a wake-up call to every parent in UK.
Every child is now at risk of kidnappingby the State, as Social Services can manipulate the law with impunity.
Recent new draconian laws also give social workers powers to section parents who fight back as being mentally ill.
They can then be incarcerated indefinitely. Welcome to the Blair - Brown created UK soviet.
Secret and corrupt courts, mental institutions and collusion between public authorities,NHS and police.
In our June edition we printed the harrowing story of a very sick young girl called Bonnie.
Kidnapped at gunpoint by police in Florida, the US authorities had in fact been duped' by a conspiracy of lies concocted by Neath Port Talbot Social Services, Bonnie's loving mother and grandfather looked on totally helpless as their daughter was taken into care in UK.
She never lived with them again.
SS officials used falsified evidence, unlawful passports, and operated in adeceitful collusion with Hospitals, Courts, Foreign & Commonwealth Office and MPs.
Local police assisted the process.
Devious Social Services staff duped US Social Services into believing that Bonnie had beendiagnosed as suffering from Maunchausen by Proxy, and they submitted a pick up order to the US authorities, before flying to Florida to kidnap Bonnie.
Even Judge Evans, stated in his had made saying that the child should not be removed from the jurisdiction was in fact made the day after the child had in fact left the jurisdiction.
He added..and I wanted to make it abundantly clear [to the US Authorities] that I said as far as I was concerned firstly the child had already left when I made that order so it didnt seem to me that there was any breach of that order.
The judge also indicated that he only had information suppliedby Ms Rzezniczek.
The Judges words clearly indicate that Mrs Lewis and her grandfather had not breached any order in taking Bonnie to the USA.
In that case the question has to be asked - on what authority did Neath Port Talbot SS and Ms Rzezniczek obtain a passport for Bonnie, and under what authority did they then take Bonnie from her mother in the USA at gunpoint ?
Mrs Rzezniczek is now Head of Neath Port Talbot Children and Young People Services.
Her responsibilities include leading on child protection, looked after children, fostering and adoption.
Working towards closer relationships with schools and health agencies to deliver a more integrated service for children and families.
This action, taken without proper legal authority, mirrors the recent admission that Birmingham Social Services sent five children to the Jersey childrens care home without the necessary court orders.
After personal investigation, Neath Port Talbot Cllr Davies was prepared to write in a personalstatement dated 2002....I believe that we [Neath Port Talbot Borough Council] were not entitled to go there(USA), we relied on Orders that were invalid and there is a possibility that we may have misled the Courts when those original orders were made.
These are very serious allegations by Cllr Davies, but what action he took inside the Council is unclear.
Allegedly he was threatened.
The kidnap followed major medical mistakes and incompetence in South Wales hospitals.
Passed from one hospital to the next, with no diagnosis or treatment, the desperate mother eventually sought help from Social Services.
This was a huge mistake, which was ultimately to result in Bonnies kidnap by the SS.
Yet from the time that she was taken by Social Services, Bonnie remained in pain. The same pain for which her mother and grandfather had worked tirelessly to obtain a proper diagnosis and treatment.
What parent wouldnt ?
The mothers reward for her justifiable parental concern was to be branded mentally unwell and to have her child taken by the State.
In doing so,SS officials callously brushed off the daughters terror at the kidnap in Florida.
Then an ordinary social worker, Julie Rzezniczek described Bonnies trauma at being forcibly taken from her family as being....Tearful.
In the subsequent Contract for Contact, Social Services deliberately and specifically prevented any discussion between Mrs Lewis and her daughter concerning Bonnies health, illness or pain.
Letters from Bonnie all had to be given to Ms Rzezniczek before they were passed on.
Denied free speech, Bonnie did manage to smuggle out harrowing letters detailing her pain and longing to come home.
None of these were taken into account by Social Services or the Courts.
Blocked behind a Barnados guardian, this little girl was no longer permitted to show love for her family, or express her feelings.
Bonnie has still not been re-united with her mother.
Now adult, she remains held and apparently controlled in a strange world of Social Services contacts, who have aggressively blocked attempts by the family to see their daughter.
At the age of 16 Bonnie met her Grandfather in the street.
This was the man she had loved and thought the world of.
As he greeted her, she shrank back, and warned him...."Granddad, dont come near me. Theyll know. Theyll know. You mustn't."
Sensing his granddaughter's distress,and fearful for her, he walked on.
Programmed and controlled by Neath Port Talbot SS, Bonnie was now lost in a psychological prison called British child protection.
Her strange was, and still is, totally contrary to the loving letters which she smuggled to her family.
Just what did the SS do to this childs mind?
The June UK Column story ( Gagged by NPTCBC ) produced instant response from the general public.
Telephone calls from parents reporting yet more SS child snatch cases, further information on the Bonnie case (including allegations of threats by police officers), calls and letters of support for the work of the paper, demands by Port Talbot Council that they did not want more copies of the Column.
A few members of the public couldnt believe that the story was true.
And this is a critical point.
Not only is Bonnies story true, but the facts of the case are mirrored in thousands of other cases of child stealing by the state that have occurred in UK over the last 30 years.
Something evil is at work in Great Britain, and it is targeting our children.
Just consider the revelation that Birmingham Social services sent children to Jersey, and now has no record of them.
Most worryingly this is an evil backed and supported by top level government ministers using secret family courts.
The UK Column promised to continue to help the Lewis family expose the truth.
( when I saw the evidence so did I for as long as it takes ! - Kevin )
We are therefore publishing excerpts and quoting from the official documents and letters concerning the case.
Painstakingly obtained by the family, these have all been duplicated for safekeeping.
It is this evidence which must be brought into the light, if our children are to be safely brought up by their loving families, and not by an increasingly domineering and prescriptive state machinery.
The original charges made by the UK Column against Neath Port Talbot Social Servicesand local hospitals included:
Failure to diagnose a serious illness.
Removal of a healthy appendix by Neath Hospitalwith no license to operate.
Cover-up of the severe post operative abscess.
Excessive prescription of drugs, some not approvedfor use on children.
Negligent prescription of oral morphine.
Incorrect discharge and prescription forms.
Confused and incompetent hospital referrals, examination and treatment.
False denial of Bonnies pain by Doctors and Social Workers.
Instead of supporting Mrs Lewis to obtain proper treatment for Bonnie, evidence shows a number of doctors conspired with Neath Port Talbot Social Services to silence the mother by branding her mentally ill /unstable and taking Bonnie into care.
Not happy with destroying the family,Social Services then failed to treat Bonnie and left her in pain and isolated from her family.
Bonnies smuggled letters (actual handwritten ), show her trauma and ongoing pain at the hand of cold callous Social Services minders.
The following letters are in her own words.
March 19th 1998 ...they are the only things two things that I want is to be out of pain and back home with you all.
June 1998 she says (in her own words): I love my Nan and Granddad and my pain if I say it to my Mum they will stop contact never see you again. Julie Rzezniczek and the Guardian have told me I am never coming home.
September 1999....Please please help me I miss you all so mum. I hate living with Julie.I just want to be home and I am still in the same pain.
October 1999 ...”I love you Mam..All I want is to come home”.
Significantly, Julie Reznecek had contacted Dr Michael Cosgrove in May 1998 to say that Bonnie.“had some some worsening of her symptoms. It seems that a week ago her pain got worse”.
Examined by Dr Cosgrove, Bonnie was restarted on medication. As with his earlier examinations Cosgrove remained convinced that there was nothing significantly wrong.
With unbelievable hypocrisy it was unacceptable for a mother to keep seeking medical help for a daughter in pain, but Social Services can deny that pain, and then seek further medical opinion with impunity. The cold brutality is shocking.
But there is far more to Bonnie's case than brutality by the SS -the trail of medical blunders,incompetence and negligence is alarming.
Bonnie was first admitted to Singleton Hospitalon 23 November 1996 via casualty with a pulse of 140 and a temperature over 100.
Five dayslater she was discharged by Dr Dewi Evans, who considered nothing wrong.
On 9 December 1996, and still in pain, Bonnie was re-admitted to Neath General Hospital.
Although her pain was high in her stomach, a general surgeon Mr John Elias assisted by Dr Obyian performed an appendectomy.
This operation was totally unnecessary and Bonnie’s appendix was later discovered by her parents to be completely healthy.
By 16 December however, Bonnie was delirious with a massive wound infection.
Her parents discovered in January 1997 that Neath hospital did not even have a license to conduct the operation - they started a formal complaints procedure against Neath hospital.
With no diagnosis for her pain, Bonnie's parents were then given the run around by doctors and hospitals.
By 13 January Dr Nelson suspected another abscess and referred her to Bridgend hospital under Dr Trefor Jones.
Next Jones suspected a hiatus hernia.
By 20 January Bonnies supposedly had suspected ulceration problems.
After that Cardiff University hospital, and here the story takes another twist.
A Dr Morris examined Bonnie and stated that she had a serious stomach acid problem.
Although she was not his patient, Dr Morris was so concerned with Bonnie’s condition that he conducted tests which showed high acid as the cause of the pain. Prescribed anti-acid medication Bonniewas discharged.
Her pain worsened and she was re-admitted to Bridgend to be discharged and re-admitted again.
Family given run -around by NHS.
Mrs Lewis states that “No one seemed to know what was happening.
Bonnie was in pain, we just kept getting the run around.
"They lied and even falsified reports and documents.”
At the end of February Bonnie underwent yet more tests at Cardiff University Hospital.
By chance the family saw Dr Morris again.
He was shocked when they told him what had been going on, and requested from his superiors that he take Bonnie as his patient.
The family allege that not only was he refused permission, but he was warned to “keep out of it or loose his job”.
On 27 February the desperate the family contacted the Area Health Authority.
The Chief Executive Jan Williams instructed them to get in touch with their GP Dr Roberts, to tell him to get re-admitted into a hospital that had MRI scanning facilities and to have her stomach and pancreas scanned.Roberts seemed reluctant or unable to get in contact with the family, but when he finally did so, Mrs Lewis maintains that he stated.
”We’re all going to get struck off for this!”
Roberts failed to get Bonnie into a hospital with an MRI scan, and arranged Bonnie to be re admittedto Bridgend, pending transfer to an MRI facility elsewhere.
During March 1997 Bonnie was given a CT scan of her stomach, and not her pancreas.
A Dr Gregory reported that Dr Ollifee had performed a positive gastric test, and this indicated that she was suffering from Zollinger Ellison Syndrome.
Meanwhile arrangements were supposedly being made to transfer Bonnie from Singleton to Great Ormond Street hospital.
On March 30th Bonnie was prescribed 80mgs of oral morphine.
This was a gross error and luckily Mrs Lewis checked before giving it to her Bonnie.
April 1st and the desperate parents now try Alder-Hey hospital Liverpool.
Dr Dazzell examined Bonnie, repeated earlier tests, prescribed the same anti-acid medication, and then 15 days later discharged Bonnie, saying nothing was wrong.
Surreptitiously he makes a new appointment at Singleton with Dr Cosgrove. The doctor who would later be used by Social Services to ‘treat’ Bonnie.
Complaining again to Dr Avery Chief Executive of the Bro Morgannwg Health Trust in May, Avery told the surprised Lewis family that he had already allocated the money for Bonnie to go to Great Ormond Street.
He was under the (mistaken) impression she had already gone.
By personally arranging an appointment at the Royal Free, Bonnie’s Grandfather was able to get Bonnie examined by Dr Simon Murch.
He identified that Bonnie’s colon was blocked:this damning result effectively nullified earlier tests supposedly carried out at the other hospitals.
Initially upbeat about his findings, Dr Murch became cooly dismissive of his findings after ‘discussion’ with colleagues.
He prescribed laxatives, but arranged another appointment.
On June 1st Bonnie is given a Colostoscope and Endoscope. Dr Murch now diagnoses Frolic Colitis; her immune system is not working, her digestivetract is inflamed and glands in her stomach were inflamed.
He prescribed 3000mgs daily of Pentasa- a drug not recommended for children and with a recommended adult dosage of 750mgs per day.
By June 3rd a Dr Thomson suggested Bonnie had Irritable Bowel Syndrome and was depressed.
On June 5th Bonnie was given an MRI brain scan as she was having severe headaches.
From June 7th until July 17 she was subjected to yet more test by different doctors with different diagnoses.
After being an inpatient for 7 weeks Bonnie was discharged.False claims of an infected appendix.
Behind the scenes Dr Dewi Evans of Singleton Hospital had already been manipulating events.
Writing to Dr Dazell of Alder Hey Liverpool on 9 April 1997, he provides a summary of Bonnie’s case, which contains errors and untrue statements.
In particular he describes the operation to remove Bonnie's appendix as revealing an appendix that was “long and swollen”.
He also describes the recovery as uneventful apart from some “redness around the appendectomy scar.”
Either Evans was misinformed or this was a blatant lie, since Bonnie’s appendix was normal, and she had suffered a massive post operative infection and abscess of the wound.
His summary did not identify a full diagnosis for Bonnie either previously or at that time.
Instead Evans appears to ‘engineer’ his position concerning Bonnie and her family.
He states: “I have spoken to colleagues in Cardiff and Neath about Bonnie."
"They all comment on the incredible tension in the family."
"There appears to be a great deal of anger."
"However no one has worked out any explanation for these symptoms, i.e. no one can identify any “gain” to her having these pains."
"I will be very interested to see how things work out at Alder Hey."
"I would be pleased to become the local link for her pediatric care, or it may be more appropriate for her to see my colleague Dr Mike Cosgrove”.
In his letter to Dr Roberts, Bonnie's GP, dated 9 July 1997, Evans again ignores the medical shambles which has occurred since his original examination on 28th November 1996.
Clouding matters under reference to ‘the Royal Free and a whole load of investigations’, Evans again gives no definitive diagnosis, but does put himself forward as the primary point of contact within local paediatrics.
Later, this central role effectively allows him to ‘steer’ the subsequent direction of Bonnie’s case, labeling the mother with false ‘psychiatric diagnoses’ and covering up medical misdiagnosis and incompetence - the very factors which caused the family and Bonnie to experience unnecessary suffering and mental anguish in the first place.
We should also remember that the Lewis family had also started the path to a medical negligence claim, which would certainly have involved Dr Evans.
Facts twisted to claim emotional abuse.
Just three weeks later, again on the instigation of the same Dr Evans, Neath Port Talbot Social Services called an Initial Child Protection Case Conference at GP Dr Roberts’ surgery.
It was stated that .... ”(the) conference was of the view that the threshold of significant harm (emotional abuse) has been crossed, however Agencies are prepared to give the family the opportunity to work in partnership with those professionals involved in an effort to help Bonnie...(it was) therefore decided not to enter Bonnie’s name on the Child Protection Register”.
Having now drawn Bonnie into the Neath Port Talbot SS child snatch system, the conference then conspired to alienate the mother from independent medical advice.
It did this by recommendation 3... ”(that) the supervision of any medical support / intervention is undertaken entirely under the auspices of the family GP (Dr Roberts) and Consultant Paediatrician (Dr D Evans).
Any referrals to other Specialists (e.g. Psychiatrist) should occur only after positive consultation between Dr Roberts and Dr Evans”.
This recommendation effectively gave Dr Evans control of Bonnie’s case and prevented the parents from getting alternative third party medical advice.
Just four days after the conference Dr Evans again wrote to Bonnie’s GP Dr Roberts setting out what he considered were factors making him certain of “a significant psychological problem”.
His letter surmises that:
"The family taking Bonnie to Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in the middle of the night, instead of arranging admission to a local hospital..... ”could only be described as ‘attention seeking by proxy’ ”, Bonnie improved when her mother was not there.... ”suggesting a psychosomatic problem.”
The mother’s reaction to the results of various investigations ... ”is not a normal response”.The mother’s objection to psychological consultation and counceling....”is indicative of a pathological maternal response.”
It should be remembered that for some 7 months Bonnie had been in continual pain, and had already suffered further pain and suffering from a huge abscess after having her (healthy) appendix removed prior to her referral to Dr Evans.
At the end of his letter Dr Evans stresses that he considers that the conference’s decision to”channel all medical referrals through the two of us was absolutely correct”.
Most significantly he ends the letter by suggesting that “Bonnie now needs her own representative, in the form of a Guardian ad Litem”. As the appointed Court Guardian, such a person would hold near total control over Bonnie.
Evans had now effectively started to isolate Bonnie from her mother and limit access to in dependent medical opinion.
He had also started to draw attention away from physical illness (although Bonnie was still in pain) and focus attention instead on vague mental /psychiatric problems supposedly concerning the little girl and her mother.
By 24 October Evans was again promoting the need for a Guardian ad Litem -this time in a letter to Miss D Smith of Neath Port Talbot Legal Services.
He also acknowledges that the Lewis family are “employing solicitors because of their concerns over the medical management”.
At this point, possibly implicated in medical negligence, Dr Evans clearly has a vested interest in the direction of Bonnie’s case.
He next wrote to Miss Smith on 21 November 1997 making a summary of the case - again regarded by the mother as inaccurate and misleading report.
Amongst a number of points Evans significantly states in paragraph 12 that ...... ”Bonnie’s clinical presentation places her within the threshold of a diagnosis of Munchausen by proxy.”
Although not a trained psychologist or psychiatrist, Evans encloses an article he has read by Eminson and Postlethwaite titled “Factitious Illness: recognition and management.
He further recommended investigation according to routine child protection procedures.
The suggestion to appoint a Guardian ad Litem was fulfilled in December when Mrs Carol Thomas of Bernados Guardian ad Litem Service West Glamorgan was appointed.
Bonnie is kidnapped in USA at gunpoint from her hospital bed.
From this point on events snowball.
In a Court hearing at Neath magistrates court on December 18th, the Local authority asked for the case to be referred to the Family Court.
That same day Dr Evans called another case conference at Singleton Hospital because Bonnie had missed an appointment with Dr Cosgrove.
At this stage, knowing that Bonnie was still ill and in pain, and sensing that she was to be taken from them, the desperate family took Bonnie to the USA to get a definitive medical diagnosis.
They were completely entitled to do so since, as Judge Evans later admitted in court, “it didn’t seem to me that there was any breach of that order.”
Since Mrs Lewis was quite within her rights to take her child abroad for medical examination and treatment, what authority did Ms Julie Rzezniczek of Neath Port Talbot Social services have, to arrange the kidnapping of Bonnie in the USA - particularly using a label of Munchausen by Proxy, which had no substantiated medical or psychiatric diagnosis?
What legal authority did Ms Rzezniczek have to obtain a passport for Bonnie, ( under a false name ) particularly when Judge Evans had not made any ruling on her extradition from the USA?
The evidence indicates that Neath Port Talbot Social Services, in collusion with South Wales police and the Courts, acted illegally and unlawfully in obtaining a passport and kidnapping Bonnie.
On her return to UK Bonnie was placed in a psychiatric facility.
From then on she was a prisoner of the state.
Bonnie is yet to return home.
Read the excerpts on the opposite page, taken from a large selection of the letters, emails, court documentation and transcripts which provide evidence of just how Bonnie was kidnapped.( Sadly these cannot be shown for legal reasons. )
As a parent, are you appalled by what you have read?
Could the next child to be abused by the State be yours?
Write to your MP and Local Councillor.
Hywel Francis has been aware of Bonnies Case for many years but will take no action.We can only therefore assume that he is part of this sinister cover up.
On the 3rd and 5th of June 2009, five elected Councillors myself and Councillors Andrew Tutton, Keith Davies, John Tallamy and Frank Little went to court with Miss Lewis and her family in Cardiff Civil Justice Centre.
We all know that Neath Port Talbot Council have acted illegally and we were all to testify on behalf of Miss Lewis. Not one of us was allowed to do so.We were silenced by the sitting Judge Seys Llewellyn.
Also with us helping Miss Lewis with her legal case was my good friend and BNP colleague Councillor Meirion Bowen.
It is worth noting that Miss Lewis throughout her efforts for justice has always acted herself as a " Litigant in Person " No solicitor will represent her as this case is considered to much of a " hot potato " and could damage their own career prospects should they be shown to assist Miss Lewis in anyway.
Judge Seys Llewellyn is a political judge.
He was there to oppress victims of the state. He allowed endemic perjury to take place in his court in his determination to prevent Linda Lewis from seeking justice over the kidnapping of her then twelve year old daughter.
(8 signed affadavits have been sent by witnesses who attending this trial in support of Miss Lewis confirming the endemic perjury. They are now with the Lord Chief Justice Igor Judge. - Kevin )
It was proved during this case that Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council had acted illegally by kidnapping Miss Lewis daughter at gunpoint from her hospital bed in America.
They could produce no evidence to prove that as an authority they had acted Legally !
I ask you to demand that this case is brought to open trial and the guilty punished !
A personal disclaimer from Councillor Kevin Edwards
The information that I have published in this tragic story of State Sponsored Corruption and Child Kidnapping is 100% accurate. I and thousands of people have seen the evidence and there can be no question with regards to it's accuracy.
This story is once again already in the public domain on the following websites.
I would like to make it clear to all concerned that it is my decision and mine alone to publish again this tragic story. This is my personal website and has nothing at all to do with the British National Party. The opinions expressed are my own.
If any state sponsored thug is sent once again to personally intimidate me to " drop this case or there will be trouble " then this time I will be ready.
If any more threatening phone calls happen then this time I am ready to record.
Consider this there are thousands of people, good ordinary people who have known about and have been active in the "Justice for Linda Lewis Campaign " for years.
We will not go away.

If elected I would call for an urgent Independent Investigation into the sinister workings of Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council.
Having spoken to many people whilst out campaigning as well as the thousands of supporters and friends of the " Justice for Linda Lewis Campaign " who have seen all the evidence regarding the injustice of her case, the overwhelming feeling from local people is that Neath and Port Talbot Borough Council are an undemocratic and unaccountable authority run by megalomaniacs now shamed badly in their eyes.
A view with which I totally agree.
Lets start with the case of Cilfrew Pensioner Linda Ware.
Ms Ware went to court to challenge Neath Port Talbot Council's granting of planning permission for an LNG gas pressure reduction station on the outskirts of her home village of Cilfrew.
Ms Ware subsequently won the case.
But by using the highly paid barristers they employ at "taxpayers expense" to get their own way Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council subsequently appealed the decision in a judicial review at the High Court and it was reversed.
Originally costs of £42,000 were awarded against her. This was reduced to £24,000 and Ms Ware was set to challenge paying any costs at all when her legal aid was suddenly withdrawn.
Why was Ms Wares legal aid suddenly withdrawn and who instigated it's removal ?
This led to an out-of-court agreement that she should pay £7,000 to the authority. She now has been ordered to pay almost £10 a week for the next 14 years, meaning she will have turned 75 by the time she pays it off.
Is it possibly a case that Ms Ware has been made an example of as a warning to other environmentalists or individuals who in future wish to challenge the actions of this seemingly unaccountable and bullying local authority.
Was the ASBO threat brought against Ms Ware unless she removed some tomato plants part of a policy of victimisation against this individual ? http://www.thisissouthwales.co.uk/news/Tomato-plant-ASBO-threat-gran-slams-council/article-1168885-detail/article.html
I agree with Ms Wares sentiments on the LNG pipeline.This is a disaster waiting to happen.
If anything should go wrong with this pipeline in Cilfrew or anywhere else from Milford Haven
to Gloucestershire then many local authorities may face charges of corporate manslaughter for their insistance on using the people of South West Wales as experimental "Human Guinea Pigs."
Once again Neath and Port Talbot County Borough Council had to go and spent thousands of pounds of public money on Barristers just to satisfy their own egos and those of the council? Just to chase and bully a poor pensioner who has had the guts to stand up and fight against them for her own rights and those rights of the people.
Anyone wishing further details on the LNG pipeline should visit this excellent site http://www.pipelinetwitter.co.uk/
Moving on !
The news that the Prenergy Power Station has been given the go ahead by the Environment Agency is a complete disaster for the people of Port Talbot and the surrounding areas.
Port Talbot already has the most polluted air in Wales and the 2nd most polluted air in the UK.
Adding another source of pollution even with the so called assurances that they have set tough limits on emissions and operating standards to protect the environment and health of people nearby cuts little ice with me.
Neither does the Environment Agencies statement that "the proposed power station will have no measurable impact on air quality."
"Quite a remarkable statement really. Pumping more pollution into already polluted air has to increase pollution."
Port Talbot already breaks the UK limit on carcinogenic Benzo[a]Pyrenes.
Allowing further emissions in an area that already exceeds safe limits is madness and will contribute to additional long term health problems in the future.
Let's be perfectly realistic.
There is no chance whatsoever that the worlds largest biomass power plant costing in the region of £400 million to build will be knocked down if it fails to conform to its strict guidelines.
The best that we can expect is falsified figures and if neccessary another cover up if things go wrong.
The fight should continue and I will oppose it all the way if elected.
Lets not forget.We are in this position because the Council originally gave the greenlight for this proposal to go ahead.
It's u-turn was a meaningless gesture to try and regain some semblance of respectability and came too late.
The Council has to be held to account as well.
And finally who can fail to question what really is going on in the corridors of power in Neath and Port Talbot County Borough Council when a story such as this appears.
OAPs must pay £100 bill for lifesaving alarm.
VULNERABLE pensioners in Neath Port Talbot must pay more than £100 a year for an emergency lifeline which was formerly free.
A letter sent out to users of the community alarm lifeline last month told them that the free service would cease on September 30.
The reintroduction of the charge after six years has been labelled as disgraceful.
One relative of a user, who asked to remain anonymous, told the Post: "The council wants to shamefully charge £2 per week to the most vulnerable members of our society. It almost goes beyond belief."
A letter seen by the Post from Claire Marchant, head of community care, confirms the £2 charge for the lifeline starts this month.
The emergency system offers an instant connection to carers if the user should fall or become ill.
Most of the people who use it are aged over 75, and the service has taken up to 200,000 calls in previous years. Full story http://www.thisissouthwales.co.uk/southwalesnews/OAPs-pay-163-100-lifesaving-alarm/article-1389038-detail/article.html
A New Labour run administration who care nothing for the people that they are supposed to represent. As long as these New Labour Councillors can fill their wallets with their grossly overpaid wages and expenses from out of the public purse then it should be obvious to everyone that the public no longer matter to them.
