    Previous poster was correct in one sense, Welsh Labour has nothing to do with Ed Miliband's One Nation Labour ( hint: the nation they are talking about isn't Wales).

    It does however have some very talented people. Unfortunately those talents are in the areas of enriching themselves at our expense and defending the indefensible.

    Labour's record is deplorable. There are no bright spots, no successes and no excuse.They have failed in every measurable way.

    Worse, to my mind though, is the complete lack of responsibility by the multitudes of labour members who are paid handsomely to be responsible.

    The post above is a good example, he evidently defines himself not by what he can do to help the ordinary people but by who he hates. There is no apology, no plan and even a slander on Welsh ambition."

Poor 15 years

First published in Letters

WALES marks the 15th anniversary of Labour’s record in the Welsh Assembly. For 15 years, Labour has been running Wales into the ground, wasting money and pursuing populist gimmicks while Wales gets poorer and public services are stretched to breaking point.

Against nearly every performance indicator Labour has let down the people of Wales, not only wasting the past 15 years but actively making the problems many people face worse.

After 15 years of Labour, Wales is the poorest part of the UK, is ranked bottom of UK nations in school league tables, has consistently missed key NHS waiting time targets and has seen some of the UK’s highest rises in council tax. Wales is being held back by a Labour administration that has been in place for too long.

It lacks the ambition needed to maximise our powers to best benefit our people. There is an element within the Labour party mainly Labour MPs who don’t want the Welsh Assembly being too successful. As they are afraid of stronger voices calling for the same powers as Scotland and even independence.
