'I find it quite sad' - Labour A&E campaigner on Tory claims

Pontypridd AM Mick Antoniw has hit back at the Welsh Conservative leader Andrew RT Davies who's questioned why the campaign name 'Labour4RoyalGlam' was registered online four days before an official announcement.

I find it quite sad. We all knew from the engagement process that the Royal Glamorgan may have been involved and there was speculation in the media that it would be affected so we prepared for the possibility.

– Mick Antoniw AM, Labour

As for the decision to close facebook and twitter pages for the 'Labour4RoyalGlam' campaign, Mr Antoniw said:

It's clear that people on the ground didn't want it to be a party political issue, so we changed the name to Campaign 4 Royal Glam so that it could be cross-party.
