Disaster not disappointment for Rhyl

According to the BBC this week, the decision to axe the Communities First scheme in Rhyl at the end of this year has been described as 'disappointing'.

Disastrous would be a more apt description and it reflects badly on the Welsh Assembly Government and its commitment to regeneration.

As this blog pointed out just over a month ago, three of the five most deprived wards in Wales are based in Rhyl.

Yet the decision has been made to scrap the Communities First programme, with everyone to blame but the Assembly Government.

If WAG cannot get its act together here in the poorest parts of our nation, what hope is there for the rest of Wales.
