So why should you get behind RCT Welsh Lib Dems? Well we believe that Rhondda Cynon Taff deserves more at a local and national level. There is so much going on that is simply not fair.

It's not fair that our children do not all get a first rate education in schools fit for the purpose, or that nursery education was cut by half denying many a better start in life.

It's not fair that services such as special baby care, paediatrics trauma services are being cut from our local hospital and centralised elsewhere.

It's not fair that whilst neighbouring authorities such as Merthyr and Caerphilly are attracting new business and expanding their retail outlets our high streets are dying.

It's not fair that so many have to travel outside the area for work whilst others cannot because of a public transport system that does not meet their needs.

We could go on, but you get the drift. It is what drives us as a party - a desire to see more equality, to see a better standard of living for people in RCT, a fairer society for us all.

It is why RCT Welsh Liberal Democrats were at the frontline fighting the plans to cut nursery education, to create 3 - 16 schools in the Rhondda and Tonyrefail, to cut services at the Royal Glamorgan. All pushed through by the Labour party - the alleged party of the working class. Well not any more.

If you care about your community then there is only one party working for you - the Welsh Liberal Democrats. Join us now and let's fight for a better RCT together.

    In July last year the Labour Cabinet in RCT announced plans to apply for funding to create two more "through schools" for 3 to 16 year olds. They refused to say which schools - obviously they wouldn't want parents to know what they planned would they - but this coming week the proposals go to Cabinet for approval.

    As we move closer and closer to the Cliff edge that is Brexit more and more people in all walks of life all across the UK are backing a people's vote on the final proposals.

    The initial referendum was a sop to the anti EU faction of the Tory party - Cameron called it to keep his back benchers quiet, never thinking that the people of Britain would actually vote in favour of it - who would after all? It threatens our economic stability, our health service, our security.

    Cwm Taf Health Board have announced the implementation of changes decided back in 2014 which will take away several vitally important services from the Royal Glamorgan hospital.

    "Maternity services will still be provided 24 hours a day at Royal Glamorgan Hospital but they will be provided by midwives, and not by doctors. You can choose to have your baby in either hospital, but if you have a complicated pregnancy or need doctor-led care when you are giving birth you will need to deliver at Prince Charles Hospital.

    Medical professionals all agree that leaving the European Union with - as seems inevitable - no deal or at best an extremely poor one - is going to be bad for our NHS.

    On 29th August the Royal College of Nursing issued a statement in which they said that a bad Brexit deal "would jeopardise safe patient care." This follows on the heels of the British Medical Association passing a motion at their annual conference opposing Brexit and supporting membership of the single market. They also called for the public to have a vote on the final deal.

    So, just as RCT Lib Dems warned, Pontypridd schools are next in line to have their sixth forms stripped away and primary and secondary schools merged.

    The Labour Cabinet have already embarked on a huge experiment in Rhondda and Tonyrefail whereby pupils from aged 3 to 16, or 3 to 19, are now mixed on the same site, albeit in separate buildings. Several schools have lost their sixth form meaning pupils have to transfer elsewhere at the age of 16 if they want to study A levels.

    We are now seeing almost daily polls that indicate the mood in the country is changing as more and more leave voters are rethinking their choice.

    In some instances it is because they realise they were conned - a leave campaign led by racists such as Farage, fat cat Tories who think only of themselves and their own pockets, and bumbling Boris who is interested only in his own career lied. They broke election law and overspent on a campaign to try and convince people that all the ills of the country could be solved by leaving the EU.

    The planning application has been submitted for the new bridge across the river in Pontypridd linking the new Taff Vale development with the park.

    The Labour Cabinet say it is to encourage people there to come into the park and enjoy what it has to offer. Local Welsh Lib Dem Councillor Mike Powell has questioned this and thinks that it would be far better for the town if people in the offices there had to walk around, past shops and cafes to get to to the park, thus encouraging them to spend.
