Message to the voters of Wales from Plaid Cymru leader Adam Price
Adam Price, leader of Plaid Cymru
In the age of conversing in 280 characters, it often feels as if the sanctity of words wears thinner by the day.
Vows to save the Union made then broken. Slogans on buses painted over with bluff and bluster. NHS deadlines missed and child poverty targets dropped.
It’s time to restore trust in our democracy.
I want you to believe in those who represent Wales as much as you believe in Wales itself. I want to prove to you that Plaid Cymru is driven by something different – not by Westminster diktat but by a sincere desire to deliver for our country.
I want us to form the next government of Wales not for the power, but for the privilege of leading our nation and for the potential that will be unleashed by our radical and transformational programme.
As you head to the polling station today, ask yourself two simple questions: Can Wales have a future that is greener, fairer, and more prosperous? And isn’t it time we had a government ready to make that a reality?
If the answer to those questions is ‘yes’, then vote for Wales – vote for Plaid Cymru.
Vote for a £6bn Welsh Green Deal that will create up to 60,000 jobs.
Vote for a Reskill Grant for those over 25 who were made redundant during the pandemic and for a Youth Jobs Guarantee for all 16-24-year-olds.
Vote for 1,000 extra doctors and 5,000 extra nurses and allied health professionals to improve access to healthcare and cut waiting times.
Vote for 50,000 public homes to end the scandal of 67,000 families stuck on housing waiting lists.
Vote for free school meals and free childcare from 24 months to lift tens of thousands of children out of poverty.
Vote for Plaid Cymru as the only party which believes that Wales’s future should be put in Wales’s hands through a referendum on independence.
Vote for a party dedicated to Wales and determined to deliver for Wales.
A dear friend no longer with us once told me that life is too short not to say what you mean and to mean what you say.
Today, I give you my word. Vote for Plaid Cymru and we will work every day to make Wales a better place for everyone who lives here. We will stand up taller and raise our voices louder to Westminster whilst building the case for our nation to make its own way in the world.
Vote for Plaid Cymru and let us prove to you that a promise made is a promise kept – true to our word and true to Wales.
