Newport gypsy sites plan gets the go-ahead
Buried amongst the furor over the Gypsy sites is this little nugget:
"In the plan the council said it expects about 10,350 new homes and 7,400 new jobs to be brought to the city by 2026"
Even the most simple of maths would show a flaw in those figures. If only one person in each household is of working age the council are working on the basis of a 25% unemployment rate. With many households now containing two working-age people, the actual planned unemployment rate is closer to 50%.

There are times when I feel sorry for the Royal Family and this is definitely one of them.
He has had to endure the eyesore that is Newport station, although I notice his visit is centred around Tredegar house so he can at least avoid the festering wasteland that is Newport town centre.

It's just another faddy attempt by Cymdaiuthas to blanket the area of Gwent with names that bear no relevance to historical exactitude.

Some interesting comments. Gets a but confusing with the use of Monmouthshire. Is this the Chepstow Usk area names that or we talking about all of Gwent? As i understand the Regional idea will be based on Cardiff taking in Gwent.
