Llanelli MS challenged over 20mph by ‘angry man’ in park

Lee Waters has taken to social media to launch a monologue on the 20mph law. The video is as a result of an encounter with an ‘angry man’ in a park who called him an ‘idiot’ and said he hoped he would lose the election.

Mr Waters starts the video by saying that he had just come back from a run and had been challenged by a man in the park and he wanted to answer some of the issues the man had challenged him on.

The video is 10.28 long but the post does not allow anyone to comment.

He posted: “You’d be forgiven for thinking from social media that everyone is against the 20 mile an hour change. It’s just not true, but clearly there are lots of people who are unhappy with it and they often tell me so – which is fair enough. Here’s what I say.”

Towards the end of the video the Llanelli MS gave an example of another man from Llwynhendy who had challenged him. He said that the man who had hated the 20mph when it came in and had been angry about the change had been on a speed awareness course and now ‘gets it’.

Mr Waters said it was the right thing to do and that he was very unpopular as a result of the change. He said: “Once we tidy up the roads with the councils that will make it better. I have been disabling comments because as you can see there is always a ‘pile on’ mostly from people outside of Llanelli. That is not good for my mental health.”

Mr Waters also appeared on ITV and reiterated the fact that he was on the receiving end of abuse over the 20mph changes.
