"I have just read the Caernarfon Herald and see that none other than Dafydd Iwan is heading Gwynedd Council's Gwobrau Gwynedd / Gwynedd Business awards for 2007.My question is simple, how can he be the front man in their publicity campaign and still have his own business (Sain) entered and apparently being short listed to the final?All this smells of a rat and makes you think how legitimate this and the competition in general is.Surely people inovled in this competiton (which is advertised as being a prestegious event) can also put his own company in the hat. Usually, when companies such as Cadbury's or Rowntree's run competitions, everyone involved (including family members are excluded) Dafydd Iwan and his company SAIN, should be ashamed of themselves. But then again should we be surprised about Plaid and Gwynedd Council's actions?My statement is simple, Sain should be removed from the competiton forthwith and Dafydd removed from Gwynedd - No not Gwynedd Council, but Gwynedd in General.
Concerned Resident of Gwynedd"
So I checked and sure enough there is DI on page 25 of the Herald smiling happily at the prospect of collecting a business award from his council (Creative Industries Award). I note the judging is independent of the council and see no reasaon why this successful businessman should not collect a gong from his council. Perhaps we can arrange an award for another of his succsessful companies, Arianrhod, as well given the success that was recently revealed about their property portfolio in Caernarfon.
