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.

    The Chief Executive of NHS England has announced that "Extensive" planning is under way to prepare the health service for a no-deal Brexit scenario says the BBC.

    This news comes as more and more people despair at any deal being reached by the hugely divided Conservative government.

    The article states:

    This week Local Government Secretary Alun Davies announced that there would be no forced mergers of council in Wales. He had previously launched a consultation and made it obvious that he wanted to push through mergers including putting RCT with Merthyr and Bridgend.

    A significant amount of Assembly civil servants' time went into this consultation and a great deal of officer and elected member time in councils across Wales where the plans met huge resistance.

    The go ahead was given this week by the four Labour members of the Ynysangharad Park Cabinet sub-committee for a £2 million bridge to be built between the park and the new Taff Vale development.

    The proposal has already met with a deal of criticism locally with residents questioning the spending of such a sum of money on a bridge which is a stone's throw from an existing one.

    The Department for Work and Pensions has submitted an application to RCT Council to create an new HQ on Treforest Industrial Estate. They are no doubt very confident that this application will pass as they have already announced their intention to close several smaller offices and open this new one.

    When the Director of Education and the Labour Cabinet in RCT decided to make guinea pigs out of Rhondda pupils and create two 3 to 16 and one 11 to 16 schools they held up the new "super school" at Aberdare as a shining beacon of light showing how great education would become.

    This despite the obvious fact that the new school in Aberdare is not a through school but instead just an amalgamation of three secondaries, but they didn't want facts getting in their way.

    So Carwyn Jones has decide to step down as First Minister in the Autumn after almost ten years leading the Welsh Government and a turbulent few months which must have taken its toll on him and his family.

    Now the speculation begins as to who will be his successor and already a whole string of names has appeared. But just who will be choosing the person who will lead not only the Labour party in Wales but the Welsh Government and therefore potentially have a significant effect on the lives of all of us?

  • Erthygl: 2018 Ebrill 5

    On 23rd June 2016 Britain went to the polls and by the narrowest of margins voted to leave the EU. Why? All manner of reasons have been given by those who voted leave, many of them very valid based on logical, well thought out judgements, but others based on near hysteria whipped up by Farage and friends and misinformation from the likes of bumbling Boris over the cost of EU membership and how much we could instead spend on the NHS.
