“Over the past five years we have shown the difference a Labour government can make to the lives of people. Protecting Wales from the worst of the Tory cuts, we have stood up for those that need our support most.
"To deliver the fairer society we want now and in the future, we must rebalance our institutions moving power closer to communities.
“Labour is at one with the people of Wales in wanting a strong set of powers that allow our nation to shape its own destiny, but with the social and economic advantages that the Union still provides. Our manifesto moves Wales onto a more permanent devolution settlement.
“This election is a choice not just between a Labour and a Tory government, but between two very different visions of Wales’ future.”
Well we can question whether Labour have made a difference to Wales or whether they have truly protected us from the " Tory Cuts" but we can question why Labour can'f simply set a date for parity with Scotland.
“Our plans for further devolution to the Assembly shows clearly that Labour are committed to rebalancing Britain and moving power closer to communities.“These proposals map out a historic new chapter in Wales’ devolution journey, creating a lasting settlement allowing us to advance social justice, improve equality of opportunity and create a fairer society for all”.
“The people of Wales can only exercise true power over devolved public services when they are properly funded. The last Labour Government recognised this, increasing the Welsh budget from £7bn to £16bn.
This is most welcome and is an improvement over the DEvo Dipyn Bach that " Alas Smith and Jone's " have indicated of what Wales could expect over the next five years.
But I wonder if they have felt something stirring in the streets as Leanne Wood seems to be appearing everywhere i the medias and in the constituencies and her brilliant stand with Mike Parker Yesterday in Aberunlike other Party Leaders actuary meeting ordinary voters not just staged photo shoots with party members,
This hug between Leanne and Mike who has hard a hard week from those seking to smear him says a lot
If you want the above Labour promises to be implemented then its people like Mike Parker and other Plaid Candidates you should back .
If Plaid can scare Labour i a few weeks of campaigning we might see a whole new ball game after May 7th.
