Bin the Plaid-Labour co-operation agreement, say Welsh Tories

21 Nov 2022 2 minute read
Welsh Conservatives leader Andrew R T Davies has called for the Labour-Plaid Cymru co-operation agreement to be ‘binned’ one year on.

Welsh Conservatives have called for the year-old Labour-Plaid Cymru co-operation agreement to be ‘binned’.

The Welsh people’s priorities have been abandoned in favour of vanity projects and inaction from the co-operation agreement, say Welsh Tories.

Last November’s co-operation agreement covers 46 policy areas, including the extension of free school meals to all primary school pupils and childcare provision; the creation of a national care service and immediate and radical action to address the second homes crisis.

In a statement, Welsh Conservatives said: “Last year, Adam Price abdicated his party’s role as a genuine opposition to sign an agreement with Labour First Minister Mark Drakeford, while enjoying privileges given to parties both in and out of government.

“However, it’s clear that over the last year the public services Welsh people care about most have been ignored, while the deal has focussed on issues that matter more to the Cardiff Bay bubble, Labour and Plaid.”

Welsh Conservative leader Andrew RT Davies MS said: “One year on since the Cooperation Agreement, Labour and Plaid have brought in one disastrous proposal after another, from default 20mph speed limits to tourism taxes to creating more politicians in Cardiff Bay , that are not only far removed from the wishes of the Welsh people, but their needs too.

“The priorities of voters have been completely ignored, with NHS waiting lists sky-rocketing beyond anything seen elsewhere in Britain, the blocking of a Wales-specific Covid inquiry, and school standards, public transport services, and pay packets all diminishing.

“Only the Welsh Conservatives would do what the Welsh people want and need: Bin this plan for more politicians and instead focusing on growing wages, tackling waiting lists and building the roads we need so we can get Wales moving again.”

RT knows a few things about vanity projects, a term exclusively connected to his party. My advice to him would be to keep watching until 2026 and learn how a government sets out its’ plan and remains stable and in place for the whole term whilst reflecting on what has happened in less than 3 years at Westminster with another limping, pathetic incompetence fest of 2 years wasting peoples’time and lives away. When he has done this, he should take Gavin Williamsons’ advice. ‘Go away and shut up’.

We are so blessed to have ARTD on hand to both enliven Welsh winter blues but also to provide some degree of challenge ( however misinformed) which of course any government needs.

Bin this plan for more politicians …

says R2D2.

Will he be having sharing similar observations with his masters in the Tory Party regarding the expansion of the House of Lords by Johnson and Truss and subsequently at the King’s Coronation, Birthday et al. for the foreseeable future?

I think not.

At least Cymru’s politicians in the Senedd are/will be our own, voted by us and answerable to us.

None of this applies to the crony-infested benches of the ermine vermin.

You’d think that R2D2 doesn’t believe in democracy. I couldn’t possibly comment.

“far removed from the wishes of the Welsh people” – where’s the proof? 20mph is a pain – but it will save lives. A tourism tax will help communities – just as it does in France and Australia. We have a cut in the number of MPs in Westminster so it is only right that we enlarge the Senedd’s MSs so people are properly represented. You see things that actually help people are alien to the Tories – who only think about growth and money.

If Wales hating Andrew RT Davies had his way he’d bin Wales, our language and history in favour of turning Wales into an English satellite appendage sweatshop with zero aspiration. That’s Wales under backward Andrew RT Davies. A political muck spreader. Don’t forget. The Welsh Conservatives watched on as their English masters in London interfered with Welsh devolution. They turned a blind eye to billions being syphoned away from our Welsh block to give to English red wall seats. They were complicit with Anglophile motormouth of Monmouth David TC Davies when he said Wales should not receive one penny of… Read more »

“Only the Welsh Conservatives would do what the Welsh people want and need” says RT Davies… …but he’s wrong, because if the Welsh Tories did what the Welsh people want the Welsh Tories would have f****d off and died years ago.

He’s got it all wrong because if the Welsh people wanted anything done by the “Welsh” Conservatives, they would vote for them!

There is no such thing as a Welsh Tory. They are English Tories with their inbred hatred of anything and everything that is Welsh. You would have to hate being Welsh to vote foe them. How can anyone who regards themselves as Welsh vote for a party that despises everything Wales stands for.

Yes, let’s all take instruction from the leader of a party in Wales’ political wilderness.

Sorry but a party in Welsh political purdah does not get to dictate the rules of the game!

Don’t like this cooperation deal. Don’t like the tories. Don’t like the senedd. Don’t like Westminster. Hmm, there may be something wrong with the current system.
