  • "If a school is letting down our kids then special measures are the right way to go. It is of concern so many are in that state. We are told the good teachers don't want to teach in S Wales. We read this week our poorest white children are way behind the poorest ethnic children too,what on earth is going on ? It's as if parents and kids have decided schools out, they have better things to do... Now Milliband wants them off the streets and training or no dole to spend on drugs and drink, albeit Milliband is about 5 years behind the Tories who are already doing it ! Let's talk to the organ grinders not the monkeys... If labour don't buck up the UKIP will be deciding for us..."

CARWYN Jones lost faith in some councils delivering a high standard of education.

He said how can he have faith when Torfaen, Monmouthshire, Merthyr Tydfil, Anglesey, Blaenau Gwent and Pembrokeshire are in special measures.

He thinks some councils are incapable of improving education and it’s impossible to have faith in the delivery of education across Wales.

Mr Jones argued it gives further urgency to the need to cut the number of councils, only if Labour get a majority in the Welsh Assembly after the next Assembly elections.

If Mr Jones has no confidence in some Labour councillors, how can he expect the voter to show any confidence for them to run our councils?
