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.

    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.

    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.
