The big question

Following a heated discussion on our letter page, a reader has sent us the following video and asks: "Is this Pakistan, India or London?"   The answer is given by clues.


Here's a few words from the person who made the video:

Hi all: I'm the guy that shot this video...Let me explain....I was invited to eat curry lunch with a friend of mine who was living in London. She suggested Southhall, knowing I love spicy curries....I always travel with my camera. I was fascinated by the number of Asians there and decided to do some shooting with no particular plan in mind. When I returned to Hawaii, I decided to edit and upload to Youtube. I didn't expect such an amazing response, positive and negative....Let's keep it positive guys OK? Before you get too critical, spend some time in Asia, know the people, enjoy the sites, then go to Southhall and visit, with an open mind...

Pat Condell

with views that the media

won't print

Why include this feature writer?  Simply because many of our readers, with a few exceptions, share his views but are afraid to speak out because of political correctness.

The Neath Ferret editorial team may not agree with some of the views expressed, but we want readers to judge for themselves

The aim of this website is to simulate thought and  discussion - Pat Condell can do this.

But there is one big difference with this website and that is it allows the opportunity to reply with a contra view. Or if you don't like what he says then tell us why.

Balanced views are important.

Is Pat Condell a racist?  Here he answers the question himself:

The website that upholds

FREEDOM within the law


Let's take pride in our castle

Remember that Neath was named after its castle (Castell-nedd)

Beacause we live with it we tend to take it for granted.   The Americans would love have this in the USA - if they did just imagine how they would treat it and promote it.

Is this listed Grade ii structure being looked after the way it should be?
