'Ugly' political football match over health condemned

Plaid Cymru's Health spokesperson Elin Jones has strongly criticised both UK and Welsh Governments for using the Welsh NHS as a political football 'in a particularly ugly football match.' She said attacks from Conservative politicians in Westminster were part of an 'appalling..pre-election spree.'

But she condemned Labour too for 'dismissing' concerns raised by Cynon Valley MP Ann Clwyd, calling it a 'shameful example of the tribal politics of Welsh Labour.'

And she blamed the First Minister for starting the row between the two governments by using his weekly question session as an opportunity to 'have a pop' at the UK Government.
