  1. What's all this about standards? Didn't you plead guilty in court and are a convicted criminal?

  2. Weren't you struck off as a doctor?

    1. Thanks for your trio of concerns.
      Dear anonymous,
      I was never struck off as a doctor but after exposing a scam at Prince Philip Hospital I did get reported to the GMC. A few greedy consultants were using their NHS time, equipment, facilities and other resources to increase their private patient income. The management were aware of it but I was not willing to see my NHS patients lose out because beds and facilities were being used for free by these doctors. I got into awful trouble, I was seen as the problem, and every effort was made to destroy my career and get me to leave the area. They were successful in stopping me working ever again in the NHS in Wales. My GMC assessors did advise me to leave Wales due to the bad feeling against me. But I didn’t. My bitter former colleagues have even arranged for me to be banned from attending medical meetings in the Hywel Dda area so they don’t have to ever see me again! As I can’t afford to keep my registration at the moment I recently arranged to have my name voluntarily removed from the GMC register in good standing, as I’m not able to find any local medical employment. I am free to reapply any time if needed. I think I will probably stick with the politics now.
      Yes I pleaded guilty to 2 agricultural regulation breaches in 2012 when prosecuted by my Council. I had arranged for some sheep to be checked once a day according to DEFRA recommendations only to be told by their barrister that Carms CC required sheep to be checked twice daily in wet conditions. As a councillor I pleaded guilty although I was not aware of this. Turned out this was not actually a formal policy so more fool me! I also pleaded guilty to having animal remains on my field uncovered for more than the statutory 24 hours. Bones were discovered by a council officer who had my telephone details but chose to write to me about the matter and the letter arrived 6 days later. The bones were old and no stock had been missing and they were lying among rushes, but that is no defence, so I was guilty.
      Yes, I left Plaid Cymru 7 years ago after 33 years in the party. I wasn’t chucked out. They probably miss me, especially the large amount of money I gave them over the years but we just grew apart as I developed a different view of politics.
      I hope that answers your concerns.

  6. Why is this response so very different from the first which you have removed?

  7. I did post a reply but on checking found a grammatical error and instead of editing it,somehow deleted the lot. I also asked the author if they were an old medical colleague with a deep resentment of a wound to their wallet or a political opponent, as I recall, at the end. As I hadn't saved the original in document form, after writing basically the same story twice I had lost my curiosity at the end. Trolls aren't worth bothering with. SC

  8. I have been questioning Plaid concerning whether party politics would effect them, if they become AMs, questioning Plaid's double standards in Leadership. Would they put the public interest before party interest. No proper reply and @undebplaidcymru has blocked me on twitter. You have fully answered annonymous's contributions and I find, from that, you as well as @caebrwyn have suffered at the hands of our very vindictive County Council. Dissent is not to be tolerated if questioning the CCC or the questionable actions of the ruling parties members. Good luck with your endeavour to become an AM as I feel you would try to hold the CCC up to the light and call for accountability.
