The Welsh Conservatives have marked Carwyn Jones' fourth anniversary as First Minister by criticising his record as 'uninspiring' and 'four years of failure.' Tory leader Andrew RT Davies said:
Four years of missed opportunities.
Four years of failure to reach the very best for Wales – on education, on health, on the economy.
All under Carwyn Jones’s watch.
Skewed spending priorities have led to a refusal to freeze council tax, record-breaking NHS cuts, and business rates relief that could be hugely improved.
– Andrew RT Davies, leader of the Opposition
Legislation has been hugely slow in coming forward and to date, Mr Jones’s tenure remains entirely uninspiring.
This First Minister continues to preside over hospital downgrading, appalling global tests in maths, reading and science, and access to finance for businesses that is inexcusably bad.
