Welsh Conservatives question party's "non-existent" Welsh strategy

A source from the Welsh Conservatives has said the party's Welsh election strategy was non-existent.

Speaking to our Political Editor Adrian Masters, the source said the party in Wales was not shown the manifesto before it was published and was "effectively silenced".

It's astonishing that we weren't given sight of the final manifesto before its publication.

Andrew [RT Davies] was proactively replaced on the Saturday night before the Ask the Leader debate. The Assembly group was effectively silenced, muted. We were told not to issue any lines on Labour or Plaid during the campaign. Contrast that forcibly with the successful 2015 campaign which was run with a successful team Wales approach and the skills of Westminster & Assembly colleagues which resonated so well with the voters.
