Leanne Wood nomination “an act of utter contempt for the electoral will of the Welsh people”

16 May 2016

Following the tied vote for first minister in the Senedd today Andy Richards, Unite Wales Secretary commented:  “For Plaid Cymru, Ukip and the Tories to pull this stunt today is an act of utter contempt for the electoral will of the Welsh people. We are in the middle of a steel crisis which if not resolved will have a devastating impact on Wales. To deny Wales the strong leadership it needs at this crucial time for Wales is a stain on our democracy. Unite trusts that Leanne Wood will sleep soundly tonight knowing that she has the backing of Andrew RT Davies and Neil Hamilton."
