You may recall our story regarding the campaign Natwatch ran against Gwynedd Council ex employee Rhodri Tomos, which led to his resignation on September 1st.
Mr Tomos did indeed make the following comment in an email converstion with Natwatch:
“There's one thing lacking in your website - there's no mention of the Pwllheli Marina issue, probably the most embarrassing incident this year for Welsh nationalists.”Little did Mr Tomos know how Natwatch, The Daily Post and Welsh Labour would ‘interpret’ this comment. Keep your hats on, you’re about to enter the Brit Nat spin zone:
"Nat Watch has received correspondence from the Information and Research officer for Plaid-run Gwynedd Council Rhodri Tomos, who has told us that there are several 'embarrassing' truths waiting to be publicised regarding the actions of his own council."The Daily Post reported:
"Rhodri Tomos allegedly told the Nat Watch site he could pass on 'embarrassing' details about plans to double moorings at Pwllheli marina."Welsh Labour’s press realease said:
"…Website Nat Watch reports that Gwynedd press officer Rhodri Tomos has expressed concern about the way in which the Pwllheli Marina project was handled by his employers."That’s enough of the spin, here’s the truth:
Mr Tomos never worked on the Pwllheli Marina project. Mr Tomos has never revealed any wrongdoing, regarding the Pwllheli Marina project or any other activity of Gwynedd council to anyone. To allege that Mr Tomos had offered Natwatch or anyone else 'embarrassing truths' about the Pwllheli Marina project is a complete lie.
It is a great shame that Mr Tomos felt the need to resign because of this matter. The Brit Nat Labour spin machine are solely to blame for his resignation. Yet again, this shows how vile the Brit Nats behave here in Wales, and their total disregard for the people.
