Change to secure a better future for Wales

Exactly 100 days before the Welsh Assembly elections, writing for ‘ConservativeHome’, Andrew RT Davies argues that voters have a clear choice between change to secure a better future for Wales or sticking with the same old ideas from Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour.

Extracts from Andrew RT Davies’ article are below:

“After 17 successive years of failed Labour administrations, Wales has a real opportunity for a change in direction, change in leadership and change of approach. The position of Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party in Cardiff Bay has never been more precarious.

“This election is about securing change for our NHS; which has been deprived of funding for too long; proving Labour have become complacent with the public services that matter most.

“And it's about reminding people that there is no reason why Wales' children should not achieve the very best. Labour plan to campaign on GCSE results that still see Wales bottom of the pile in the UK - and, for me, that simply isn't good enough.

“Since becoming leader of the Welsh Conservatives, I - and my Group - have been determined to articulate a clear vision of the change Wales needs. From prioritising rate relief for small businesses, utilising new tax-powers to make Wales the low-tax nation of the UK, ending Labour's funding assault on our NHS and freeing up teachers from centralised control; we've consistently offered alternatives to old Labour ideas that just aren't working. These are the issues we need to be debating in Wales right now.

“May 5th is a clear choice between change to secure a better future for Wales; or sticking with the same old ideas that are not working.”
