FM tours labelled a 'cynical waste of taxpayers' money'

Commenting on the announcement of a series of publicly funded promotional tours by Labour’s First Minister ahead of next year’s Assembly elections, a spokesman for the Welsh Conservatives said:

“It's a scandal that the public is being asked to fund Labour's re-election campaign.

“It doesn't take a cynical disposition to question Carwyn's decision to wait until the last year of this term to 'connect' with voters. It's a sham.

“Welsh Conservatives have been engaging all along, listening to people's concerns about record breaking NHS cuts and the damage done by Labour's refusal to implement a cancer drugs fund.

“Instead of rolling out the red carpet for himself in front of hand-picked audiences, Carwyn would be better 're-connecting' with reality.”
