Next May's Welsh election will be 'the toughest [Labour] has ever faced' according to the First Minister Carwyn Jones.
The Welsh Labour leader was speaking to the party's UK Conference, the first under new leader Jeremy Corbyn.
He told delegates in Brighton that Labour will face challenges from all sides in the 2016 Assembly election, but he assured them that the party can be proud of its 'secret weapon: a record of delivery.'
I have no doubt whatsoever that the next Welsh General Election will be the toughest we have ever faced.
We slipped back in Wales in May, when we were fighting to win.
Next year the Tories will, of course, out-spend us and will use their Westminster megaphone to once again trash the record of the Welsh NHS.
And there’s danger on the fringes too – the frantic nationalism of UKIP and fantastical nationalism of Plaid Cymru will be competing hard for the votes of the disaffected.
It will be tough.
But, as Welsh Labour, we have a secret weapon. A record of delivery.
Every promise we made, we’ve delivered.
