Welsh Labour are hailing their best vote share since 1997 and three seats gained in Gower, Vale of Clwyd and Cardiff North. Party sources are claiming that the very distinct campaigns fought by Carwyn Jones and Jeremy Corbyn jointly delivered a result beyond expectations.
They say Welsh Labour’s campaign, led by Carwyn Jones, connected positively with voters across Wales, while Labour’s UK campaign, led by Jeremy Corbyn, was hugely effective, especially in energising 18 – 24 year olds who voted in unprecedented numbers.
First Minister Carwyn Jones has opened tributes in the Senedd to his predecessor, Rhodri Morgan, who died last week. Mr Jones recalled how he'd been appointed to the Welsh cabinet by a man he regarded as a father figure.
What I am now, I owe to him. He was a hugely intelligent man, with a fine mind but he could get on with anybody.
We've lost one of our nation's giants. He may be gone but his name is written into our nation's history.
Carwyn Jones will make five pledges to voters and he'll attempt to shift the political debate away from questions about leadership.Read the full story ›
After what he's calling a "mixed night" for Labour, plus better results today in Rhondda Cynon Taf and Caerphilly, First Minister Carwyn Jones has called for a re-focus on the General Election campaign, to be fought "with our own Welsh Labour values".
Welsh Labour candidates and activists can be incredibly proud of themselves today – they fought another tough election, and once again defied the odds. The Tories had been briefing that they’d be walking into power right across Wales this morning – that simply has not happened. People realise that only Welsh Labour will stand up for Wales and we thank them once again for that trust.
Despite defying the doom-mongers in places like Cardiff and Flintshire, there is no question it was a mixed night for us, and as the true party of Wales we are always more stretched than our opponents. We faced strong challenges from all parties, and independents, right across the country.
We must now re-focus and fight a General Election campaign the same way we always fight elections – with our own Welsh Labour values, huge amounts of hard work and an absolute commitment to stand up for our communities against the Tories.
Despite assurances from Theresa May, Carwyn Jones warns that Brexit could undermine devolution. It's a view backed today by Gordon Brown.Read the full story ›
