Dylan Rees & Plaid Cymru fall out

  
As Gordon Brown heads to Buckingham Palace to ask permission to dissolve Parliament and start the election campaign, rumours reach the Druid that Dylan Rees and Plaid Cymru in Anglesey have had some kind of falling out. Details are sketchy but more news when I hear it...

Anon - sorry, I have had to delete your post as you mention one allegation which cannot be substantiated. I will copy and paste the rest of your comment with that part redacted here:

"Many simply do not understand how or why Plaid Cymru have selected Dylan Rees to stand as a candidate for Plaid in this election. Have they not looked into this man's past at all? Dylan Rees is one of the laziest, most incompetent and cowardly individuals I and many others have had the misfortune to have had to work with whilst he was a serving Police Officer in North Wales Police. I see from his web site that one of his pledges is to tackle law and order on Ynys Mon? He was at best totally ineffective and at worst completely incompetent when he was a Police Inspector at Holyhead when he was in a position to really make a difference and where it mattered. For Dylan Rees to say he intends tackling law and order on Ynys Mon is a farce and a complete misrepresentation. His previous track record and lack of ability is pretty clear for all to see. This candidate is a fraud and he is in this election just for the £65K salary he will get. He lacks ability or integrity and Plaid may well have shot themselves in the foot by selecting him. Dylan Rees couldn't hack it as a Police Officer when he had a real opportunity to clear up Holyhead and deal with real criminal behaviour which is why he resigned. He really is NOT a credible, competent candidate for any political party in a general election least of all Plaid Cymru. I am a Plaid supporter but will not be able to bring myself to vote for this man who is surely of the very poorest calibre of political candidate both personally and in terms of any actual ability. I suspect the people of Ynys Mon, especially those who have personal experience of Mr Rees, are far wiser in terms of their political acumen than Plaid Cymru give them credit for and I suspect they have far more sense than to vote for this Plaid Cymru lame duck. [REDACTED] - is this the kind of person the people of Ynys Mon REALLY want as their constuency MP? One can only hope not... I thought the whole idea was to clean up politics in this country not promote totally unsuitable candidates like Mr Rees which only serves to make confidence in our members of parliament much worse.... Plaid have really messed up with this candidate and are likely to pay a heavy price for selecting him. More's the pity..."

The only dealings I have had with Dylan Rees was whilst he was (is) a homelessness officer working for Ynys Mon Council. My now ex partner and I sought his assistence in finding a home. I found Mr Rees to be extremely helpful, guiding us through the red tape and advising appropriately. He ultimately, with the help of his dept, found us a very satisfactory place in which to live. I am a Labour voter, but I feel the comments above where obviously written in hostility towards Dylan Rees which isn't really fair. Hope this counter reference goes some way to repaying the help he gave me, my son, and ex partner.
