Disabled Chepstow man grew cannabis to pay for car and dog
Although I no longer partake myself, I still support the abolition of this ridiculous, politically motivated law. (There's no moral justification for it). If it were me, I wouldn't be too happy with the neighbour - and those feuds can get ugly.

Welsh Government help for homebuyers unveiled
Mervyn James wrote:
Aspirational people would be better placed to get on the housing market, I would have thought, what are you saying ? that's London policy, but at least Londoners have got jobs to do and the wages to pay. There is no way Wales will see any housing 'bubble' like southern England, we are surrounded BY empty properties no-one can afford to buy, and no-one is building social housing any more. Combine that with no housing to downsize too, let's stop bashing the social housing tenants who are just being told to pay an tax that has nothing to do with helping others on the ladder of housing,because they cannot move, even if they wanted to. Private landlords are pricing everyone out of a home.

ARGUS COMMENT: Common sense wins out in Russia
Katie Re-Registered wrote:
"ARGUS COMMENT: Common sense wins out in Russia THERE appears to have been a sudden outbreak of common sense in the Russian judicial system." Really SWA? I beg to differ with the opinion of your editorial that a profoundly heterosexist, gender normative and homophobic legal system which enshrines a policy of discrimination against LGBTQ people; a persecutory scapegoating which is driven chiefly by the irrational hatreds and superstitions of a reactionary Russian Orthodox Church, bolstered by the paranoid, personal psychological insecurities over gender and sexuality of a a self-elected leader called Vladimir Putin equates to my definition of 'common sense'. Guess this will be what the editor considers 'a rant' now. Anyway, at least you'll have company as oddly enough, Vladimir Putin apportioned the same label to the protest enacted against him by Russian feminist punk band "Pxxssy Riot".

Newport activist presented with hooligan charges
Katie Re-Registered wrote:
As usual, the complete silence from our national 'leaders' when Fuhrer Putin commits yet another outrageous violation to human rights' law is predictably deafening. The spineless appeasers in the west are terrified of standing up to him as we are dependent on the main source of energy supply to western Europe which flows from Putin's territory. These activists are less like prisoners and more like hostages taken by a notorious terrorist who elected himself 'president'.
