A Tory MS has been criticised for proposing that Senedd debate time be used to congratulate the Queen.

Ardent monarchist Darren Millar, came under fire from Plaid Cymru MS Rhys ab Owen, for wanting to use the Welsh Parliament’s time to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the hereditary head of state’s accession to the British throne.

The Plaid spokesperson on the constitution and justice suggested that the time would be better spent debating the “cost of living rising or on the health service”.

The proposal for the opposition debate by the Welsh Conservative Senedd member, says: “To propose that the Senedd: 1. Extends its warmest congratulations to Her Majesty the Queen on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of her accession to the throne.”

Rhys ab Owen, shared a screenshot of the proposed opposition debate on social media, and said: “Tonight in the Senedd, the Conservatives said @Plaid_Cymru were wasting time on ‘constitutional matters’ for having a debate against the Elections Bill. Next week the Tory debate is not on cost of living rising or on the health service but…..”

Not mischief, the little brown noser wants to use his position to get himself an honour by wasting time in the Senedd kissing her backside.

10 minutes seems about right. She’s a good old stick, but lets not have a Tory brownest nose competition about it.

She slithers out of her subsidised palace once every 6 months, visits somewhere, the sycophants and press kiss her backside for nothing and then she slithers off back into her subsidised palace for another 6 months while her sycophants make up supposition stories about her to make her look less lazy than she is. She does nothing and she has done nothing.

Explain in detail what are the personal measures HM has taken to “steer us through turbulent times” because some of us do not believe in fairies. Please give examples in order to persuade and convince us otherwise.

Dewi Bach these are comments I’m sure from the white flight brigade who would be better off back to whence they came.
I know we would be.

Working tirelessly for our people? What work? I would say the English monarchy doesn’t give a stuff about Wales. The English monarchy is quite happy to take our legal, human rights away…. The English monarchy has tortured our Kings to death, conquered our land and stolen our possessions. The best thing for all four home nations is four independent, equal nations.

Tory Millar time-wasting as always, when he could be debating the vital and very important issues that affect Wales and the Welsh people. The Westminster government imposes many more cruel financial cuts in the guise of the Brexit disaster and lying scam, plunging the Welsh population into poverty – but this appalling Tory toff is wrecking the Senedd timetable again. Utter, utter shame on him.

This is either careerist OBE jealousy or a concern for his mental health.

On the other hand, perhaps anyone on the receiving end of Mr Millar’s sycophantics deserves to be generously compensated for the indignity of it…

Less flippantly, the sycophantics and deference are degrading to both sides of the transaction. Good reasons for scrapping the monarchy whether you like the present incumbent or not.

Nice to see what’s important to Darren ” brown nosing ” Millar. Enjoy your time in the sun Darren, you’ll be on Universal Credit in two years time. Then you’ll see what it’s like to suffer the humiliation of being treated like a criminal for just being unemployed.

In principle I agree, but I can’t think of anything better.
Makes me think of Hillare Belloch:
“And always keep ahold of nurse for fear of finding something worse….”
Like an elected president?

Darren represents a fair proportion of our population who are either traditional monarchists – fearful of a presidential system – or indeed far more likely. ‘ Elizabethans ‘ happy to await natures course – the view very many Australians etc – of republican sympathy take of our Commonwealth Queen and her long service.

Rhys perhaps needs to give some thought certainly to the later group who i guess are still a majority in modern Wales 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿.

Daer Mr Tory. I’m very happy to see time for this debate, as long as you give us our Bank Holiday on March 1st.

Deal?
