Gov­ern­ment must serve the peo­ple

Glamorgan Gazette - - Your Views - Ill­tyd ap Dafydd Nan­tyffyl­lon, Maesteg

FOUR Labour AMs are sup­port­ing Vaughan Gething’s nom­i­na­tion to be the Welsh Labour leader be­cause he un­der­stands the “unique Welsh Labour his­tory”.

Welsh Labour his­tory over the past 19 years is a his­tory of ab­ject fail­ure, par­tic­u­larly of the ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem and health ser­vice.

I take no pride in say­ing that the Welsh ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem is at the bot­tom of ev­ery league be­cause of the Welsh Labour Gov­ern­ment’s in­com­pe­tence. Our health ser­vice run by Vaughan Gething is fac­ing its worst cri­sis ever, be­cause the Welsh Labour Gov­ern­ment doesn’t have the in­tel­li­gence or in­cli­na­tion to pro­vide a health ser­vice that we de­serve.

The re­cent his­tory of the Welsh Labour Party is to form a coali­tion with the Tories and Ukip in Wales to hand over our pow­ers to the Tories and the big­ots of the DUP in Westminster.

Welsh Labour poli­cies are more in line with Theresa May’s right-wing Westminster Tory gov­ern­ment than Jeremy Cor­byn’s Labour Party, and these four AMs, as well as ev­ery­one in the Labour Party, have to re­alise peo­ple have wo­ken up and want a gov­ern­ment to serve them, so the Labour Party will have to work to get ev­ery vote in fu­ture elec­tions. To quote a No­bel Prize win­ner: “The times they are a-chang­ing.”

Vaughan Gething AM, cur­rent Cab­i­net Sec­re­tary for Health and So­cial Ser­vices, could be the new Welsh Labour leader
