Liz Evans: “Labour and Plaid are engaged in a sham divorce”

2011 Mawrth 25 12:28 PM

Liz EvansResponding to the speech by Ieuan Wyn Jones to Plaid Cymru Conference, Liz Evans, the Welsh Liberal Democrat's Assembly candidate in Ceredigion said:

"Plaid Cymru are desperately trying to run away from their record in Government with Labour. We've heard of a sham marriage. Now Labour and Plaid are engaged in a sham divorce.

"Plaid and Labour have spent more money on economic development than any other part of the UK, but Wales is now the poorest part of Britain and we're falling further behind. They spent more of our money on the NHS than England, but we put up with longer waiting times. And under Plaid policies, Wales's school results have fallen behind England and Scotland. Little wonder when, under Plaid and Labour, children in Wales get six hundred pounds less spent on their education."
