A NEATH politician has spoken about his life in South Africa to students at Neath Port Talbot College.

MP Peter Hain paid a visit to the college's Nidum Arts Centre.

The visit by the MP was organised as part of the Welsh Baccalaureate qualification.

A college spokeswoman said: "Mr Hain spoke about life living under a repressive apartheid regime and his parents' fight against the injustice."

    I wonder if he mentioned his criminal conviction - or perhaps he's proud of it.

    You can tell when Hain is lying - his mouths moving. Anyone listening to this old fool should check on what he's again preaching! He conveniently changes the truth to suit his story. Wales and particulary Neath has been disadvantaged by having this fool as an MP.

    I wonder how he explained his family's involvement in this taken from Wikipedia! When Hain was 10, he was awoken in the early hours by police officers searching his bedroom for 'incriminating documents'. At 13, Hain spoke at the funeral of John Frederick Harris, a fellow anti-apartheid activist who was hanged for bombing a railway station, injuring 23 people and killing an elderly woman... And how do you explain this also taken from Wikipedia The list of hidden donations included money from Steve Morgan, who was in charge of the deputy leadership bid, and Isaac Kaye, who had previously donated to the National Party in South Africa, who were pro-apartheid (pro-apartheid)!!
