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.

    As reported by Wales Online, Mrs Clwyd said

    Whilst the world, including the UK, was distracted by the nonsensical but dangerous ramblings of an American President not worthy of the position, the Tories were banging shut the doors on vulnerable children desperate for shelter.

    Teresa May and her heartless government are backtracking on a promise to take in 3000 unaccompanied child refuges whose homes and families have been torn apart by war. Instead they say 350 is all they can manage, and then the door will be closed and these most vulnerable human beings left to seek shelter elsewhere or fend for themselves.
