Protesters claim success at Newport

Firstrung: Latest on the Newport second home protest

The protestors wondered if they had made a difference as holiday home buyers were not there. One holiday home buyer reputed to be interested did not bid. People attending the auction said they thought the publicity about the protest could have put off the second home buyers. Everyone was happy to see a Welsh family with young children move into the small-holding.

Good show by the Welsh. We need more organised protests like this by locals - esp in the West Country where the villages are more or less dead due to second homes.
