Pugh review

Last week I related that Cllr David Pugh, cabinet member for economic development, had been forced to issue an “unreserved apology” after falsely accusing me of either lying or incompetence because of what I had written about the vastly exaggerated quantity of rendering in the tender for No. 25 Dimond Street, Pembroke Dock. Following on from... Read More »

Nodding DonQuies

I notice that other website is running a Christmas competition for the Golden DonQui award. I must say it’s a field packed with thoroughbreds, but, once I’d seen them in the parade ring, it didn’t take me long to decide on the likely winner. I’m not letting on who I voted for – wouldn’t want to... Read More »


A few days ago I wrote a rather mocking piece about Cllr Rob Summons’ deep understanding of both the Freedom of Information Act and the obscure subject of copyright law. It seems I mocked too much, and an abject apology is in order. You will recall that Cllr Summons turned up at the council meeting... Read More »

It would appear that... Read More »

Summoned up

I have now received an “unreserved apology” of sorts from Cllr David Pugh over his his patently false claims regarding a “third side elevation” at No 25 Dimond Street Pembroke Dock. You will recall that Cllr Pugh and the Leader had made an inspection of properties in Dimond Street Pembroke Dock and had discovered the... Read More »

Character assassination

During the debate on Cllr Paul Miller’s notice of motion calling for a small committee to be set up to investigate concerns over the administration of property grants in Pembroke and Pembroke Dock, the Leader Cllr Jamie Adams proposed that the matter be left to the politically balanced audit committee which could deal with “the...

Off the wall

Off the wallHaving had time to study the webcast of last Thursday’s county council meeting, I can now provide an accurate account of what was said by Cllr David Pugh when he challenged my claim that the area of rendering (125 sq m) in the tender for 25 Dimond Street Pembroke Dock had been grossly overmeasured compared...
