For those who don’t want to listen, Davies said “the impartiality we have come to expect from a BBC audience”. Thoroughly deserved the jeers

Oh the irony, when the BBC have said they have top loaded question time audiences with pro Tory pro Brexit people, this sniveling gutter snipe Davies, has to complain, when a convicted liar, bigamist, narcissist gets jeered. And no, he didn’t get the vaccine done here, as health is devolved, showing you’re ignorance again eh.

David Davies is a visceral performance artist, lacking in political nous or diplomacy. Cymru deserves so much better than this.

  • I don’t agree with Dai TC about much but I do not think ‘toadying’ and ‘snivelling’ are the right words to describe a person just because they do not agree with you.
