Poll opinion

THE PEOPLE of Blackwood get a chance to show their opinion on the living wage and other Labour failures.

When they go to the polls in the local by-election on April 24, it will be up to Labour and its candidate to convince the people of Blackwood that it was wise of them to spend their money. This election is not about an independent Wales by the cutting of services and a living wage.

I really hope that the Labour candidate does well. The Labour Party has shown its commitment to ordinary men and women for many decades.

I can't understand why the living wage is such an issue for the Plaid supporters, it clearly bridges the gap between the lowest earners and the cost of living. Incentive to keep people working is important, on the minimum wage people can still be in poverty whilst working. Cleaners, carers, cooks and labourers........ a living wage helps lift them out of poverty to live more fulfilled lives.

To oppose the living wage is a step to the right and in favour (and hope) of trickle down market led economics which is Tory ideology. That way of thinking is nonsense, just like the way Andrew Nutt's paragraph is strung together.

Andrew's little spiel is a sweeping statement that makes no sense. Rhetoric which is broadly speaking. This is generally what Plaid is about. Leanne Wood's recent speech was clear evidence of that.

Labour will give you specifics and make the hard choices carefully as well as the fair ones. That's how they explain spending.
