Tory reshuffle was 'desperate manoeuvre' says Labour

Labour AM Mick Antoniw says this about the Welsh Conservative reshuffle:

Sacking nearly half of his shadow cabinet in one fell swoop via twitter suggests Andrew RT Davies has nothing but contempt for his colleagues.

This is a desperate manoeuvre from a wounded leader struggling to impose some semblance of order of amongst his ranks. The Tory shadow cabinet has seen its female representation halved, echoing David Cameron’s Bullingdon Club approach to frontline politics.

All that is left is a gaggle of discontented backbenchers plotting their next move as RT’s disastrous leadership reign hangs by a thread.
