  • Tory broken promises on rail electrification show they don’t care about Wales

    July 20, 2017

    Responding to the shock announcement today that the electrification of the Great Western Main Line will not extend beyond Cardiff, Stephen Kinnock, Member of Parliament for Aberavon, said: “For years now the Tory government in Westminster has been promising that it will deliver full mainline rail electrification from Paddington to Swansea. Today we have seen that those promises were not worth the paper they were written on. The truth is that the Tories simply do not care about the people of Wales. Theresa May was able to find a £1 billion bung for the DUP to enable her to cling on to power, and she found £6 billion for high-speed rail in England, but when it comes to standing by her promises to the people of Wales on rail electrification - well, it's a very different story.

  • Labour should reach out to Tories on Brexit

    June 16, 2017

      Photo: The Times / News Syndication New European June 8 shifted the political centre of gravity. There is now no mandate for the Theresa May-Daily Mail catastrophically extreme version of Brexit. Instead, the Labour Party now has the opportunity to forge a coalition of common sense that can seize the moment and chart a new course through these turbulent waters. For months now we’ve heard the Brexit mantra, that we want “the best possible deal”. But nobody seems to have a clue what that means in practical terms, and there seems to be even less idea about how to get there. This is not surprising, as we are embarking on a journey into completely uncharted territory, but the clock is ticking, and an already compressed timetable has been further squeezed by May’s unnecessary and hubristic election.
