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.

    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.

    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.
