Labour claims Cameron snubbed Welsh Tory leader

Welsh Labour has seized on the absence of Andrew RT Davies at the Prime Minister's side during his visit to flood-hit Pembrokeshire as proof of a 'snub' by David Cameron to the Welsh Conservative leader.

Labour party sources are linking it to the public split between Mr Davies, some of his Assembly Members and the Welsh Secretary which led to the sacking of four Shadow Cabinet members. A spokesman said:

The growing divide within the Tories has taken a serious turn for the worse today. That David Cameron has snubbed the Welsh Tory leader Andrew RT Davies - especially given flood defences are devolved - is both hugely embarrassing and telling of the way the supposed leader if the Welsh Tories is viewed by his colleagues in Westminster. RT can take some comfort in the fact that the situation could be worse. He could have found out he'd been snubbed by the Prime Minister on twitter."
