Bethan Jenkins has taken to Twitter to answer criticism of her decision to miss a vote of censure on her in the Assembly and instead attend a protest in London by former Visteon workers who've lost their pensions.

AMs went ahead in her absence to censure Bethan Jenkins for her drink-driving conviction. She responded to criticism from the Liberal Democrat Peter Black for staying away from the Senedd.
Dont be so petty Peter, seriously now. Judge me on what I do and say, respectfully.
I am not judging you but your absence is disrespectful to the Assembly. This is not a petty issue
