How typical that in a week in which the rest of Wales is worrying about what further reductions to the Welsh Budget the Tory party will unveil on Wednesday, our out of touch Secretary of State should choose to make a speech on the constitution.
David Jones is right, of course, to say that Wales is a stronger country as part of the United Kingdom, but instead of giving patronising lectures to the Welsh Labour Government he should have used tonight’s speech to remind George Osborne that Wales’ budget has already been cut by 8.7% or £1.4 billion, and to announce the borrowing powers Welsh Labour needs to invest in our future success.
