This is also a devolved matter.
“In our pledges we talk about 853 extra police officers, a Living Wage of £10 an hour – this is legislation that we can’t produce.He did not appear to suggest however that about at Westminster would seek to devolve Policing to Wales.
I accept hat this was a "Welsh" Party Launch though Carwyn could have avoided Press speculation by mentioning Jeremy Corbyn.
Which lead to the Wales Onlne Headline
Welsh Labour held a 45-minute general election launch and didn't mention Jeremy Corbyn once.
But surely a Welsh Launch would indicate what UK Labour have of furthering Welsh Devolution such as the above Policing and Criminal Justice.
Indeed as Jeremy Corbyn announces his party UK Manifesto Today we se no indication of further devolution and one wonders what he will propose for not only Wales but the rest of the UK and with a second Scottish Independence Referendum imminent , what will Labour offer Scotland to say NO?
You can read the whole of Carwyn's speech here ,
But when you read it wonder why he has so little ambition for Wales to take on the powers to address the issues he presumably supports
His Predecessor Rhodri Morgan in a response to Tony Blair's Blue- Toryism talked about putting "Clear red Water between the Welsh and Labour Party.
Well Carwyn's failure to enthusiastically back Jereny Corbyn seems he would prefer to adopt a lighter shade of red from his UK leader.
But the reality is he offers Wales nothing and if Jeremy Corbyn was to enter Number 10, there is no indication that "Welsh" Labour will seek the powers to resolve the fact that Wales is one of the poorest parts of Europe.
