Return of an old Liberal name to mid-Wales politics
Brecon & Radnor Liberal Democrats are celebrating the capture of a former Conservative seat on Powys County Council. It also marks the return of the Gibson-Watt name to local politics. The farming Gibson-Watts, who are if memory serves me right collateral descendants of the great engineer James Watt, have moved between Conservatism and Liberalism over the years. It is good to see James Gibson-Watt back.
