Labour AM accuses Plaid Cymru of 'Del Boy' politics over regional pay

Labour AM Mick Antoniw welcomes Plaid's opposition to regional pay but hits out at what he calls its 'bizarre' decision to call for pay and conditions to be devolved. He says that would require large amounts of new funding and compares it to Del Boy promising 'we'll all be millionaires tomorrow.'

Plaid'snew leader, Leanne Wood, has failed to give progressive leadership here. Theyhave put their nationalist and separatist ideology ahead of the interests ofworking people. As a socialist she has fallen at the first hurdle. Her Del-Boypolitics will undermine the trades union campaign against the Tory Government'sattacks on public sector workers
