Philip Evans, Aberafan/Aberavon, Plaid Cymru - The Party of Wales





link / contact details for potential supporters - www.plaidcymru.org





i.
what do you think is the most important issue in this election?
 
Trust



ii.
why did you make the decision to stand in this constituency and for this party (as an independent)?
 

I have lived in this constituency for 37 years and I believe in an independent Wales in the European Union.


iii.
what kind of vote are you expecting on May 5th?

 
In this constituency Plaid Cymru was second in the last General Election with 9.8% of the vote whilst new Labour won with 63.1% of the vote. An improvement on that should happen in view of their record in Wales and their voting record compared to the 4 Plaid Cymru MPs.



iv.
aside from the vote what are you hoping to get out of this campaign?

Experience and feedback from the public to take forward to the National Assembly of Wales elections.

v.
in your view what is the greatest threat to our civil liberties at the moment?
 
A Labour government
 


vi.
Blair has taken us to war three times since coming to power (not including the occasional ad hoc bombing raid) in the Balkans, Afghanistan and
Iraq. Can war ever be justified?
 
Only with the sanction of the UN or to repel a military attack on your nation.



vii.
There is very little left to privatise in this country, if you had your way what would be brought into public hands?

 
Railways/Buses in Wales

 


viii.
Some environmental campaigners have started talking about nuclear power  as a way to bring down CO2 emissions - what do you think of this?
 
Energy from renewals as to be the safest option for the future of the planet.



ix.

Asylum and immigration will be central issues in this election. What action on this issue would you like to see the next government push through?

 
An efficient and fair system which takes the heat out of the debate so that the Conservatives and BNP would have difficulty in stirring things up.
 


x.
What question do you wish was on this list but doesn't appear?
 
Do you support the introduction of a fair and truly democratic proportional representation voting system for all elections in the UK to help encourage disillusioned voters that their vote actually does count.
