Mr Miliband spoke after an unprecedented joint meeting between his Shadow Cabinet and Carwyn Jones’ Welsh Cabinet at GE Aviation in Nantgarw, Rhondda Cynon Taf, which was followed by a question-and-answer session involving employees.Praising the Welsh Government’s Jobs Growth Wales apprenticeship programme, he said: “We’ve had a chance to show the difference a Labour government can make, and the difference a Labour government can make here in Wales. 10,000 people are about to be helped by Jobs Growth Wales and that shows the difference you can make economically by having a Labour government. I think that’s 10,000 reasons why Labour can make a difference.”Mr Miliband said holding the joint meeting had been an opportunity for his team and the Welsh Government to learn from each other. He said: “As a politician elected to Parliament after devolution, I’m relaxed about differences and the way different things are done in different places. One of the things we can learn from is Jobs Growth Wales, which isn’t being done in England. It’s been great for members of the Shadow Cabinet to meet their Cabinet counterparts in Wales and talk to them about what they’re doing.“We’ve got to do a lot better at working together in government and strengthening the institutions we have. There’s a Joint Ministerial Committee, which sees the Prime Minister and others coming together. I want to see those arrangements strengthened. Co-operation and learning from each other is absolutely fundamental to my approach to devolution and to the constitution.”
If you ever watch Prime Minister Question Time it largely consist of English Tory MPs jumping up and claiming jobless figure had fallen in their Constituency sometimes claiming personal credit and pointing to youth figures in particular.
So we have to Governments each claiming credit what might well be manipulated figures on a recovery . When we look around at the work available and wonder how as we see out council services devastated and a very bleak future with a Governments using the crisis to destroy the welfare state abetted by a Labour Party who are afraid to challenge it on welfare reform. and Assembly government with no ambition and vision.
The real farce is that when the Election comes we are supposed to believe one or the other whilst in fact it is clear neither deserve it.
Can the Welsh electorate continue to be fooled by these two appalling governments
