Panto farce, here's the cast

WHEN Leanne Wood asked how Labour planned to protect Wales from benefit cuts, when she challenged Carwyn Jones to name how many Welsh people would be affected by planned welfare reform proposals she said he had “failed to protect a quarter of a million” households in Wales.

“You had one chance to live up to your promise of shielding the people of Wales against these cuts,” she said. Mr Jones replied: “Plaid haven’t even given an alternative idea.” Well, Mr Jones, Labour got into government on a false campaign. Still, you should start to show some leadership and govern, even if your paymasters in London got us into this trouble in the first place.

Leanne is correct when she said First Minister’s Question Time is a pantomime farce. With Andrew RT Davies playing the dame, Carwyn Jones the baddie, Kirsty Williams as the princess and Leanne as Prince Charming. Andrew Nutt Heolddu Road Bargoed

The best way for the Assembl and Councils to prtect the people of Wales from cuts is to cut out the waste and run the assembly & councils far more efficiently. No sign of that happening though

Is buing an airport that has a very high level of conmmercial risk more importent than the people of Wales

Having said that though there is quite a lot of money to be saved by clamping down on fraud and abuse of benefits system

The cuts come from outside Wales via reduced funds from London. It really IS time people complained at source, and not targeted people who are trying to feed the 5,000 with no fish. I'd really like to see those who complain do any better. Try reading Mr Macawbers policies....

You are just repeating what Carwyn Jones and the ruling Labour members of the Welsh Goverment are continuously spinning. "Don't blame us, it's those awful tories and libs in London who are making these decisions and imposing them on our impoverished country".
If that is the case, then why doesn't Carwyn Jones and his colleagues keep their pre-election promisses of "Vote Labour to save Wales from the worst excesses of the Conservatives"
I once had good vibes about Carwyn Jones but they have been totally destroyed by his lack of leadership and drive, his inability to answer any questions at the senedd unless they have been loaded by his back benchers.
I too am fed up to the back teeth of the way consective governments in London treat Wales. The Barnet formular being a prime example. However the solution is in own hands. If we only have the courage to get off our knees and take control of our own destiny.
