Wales will need Plaid Cymru more than ever before

Only Plaid Cymru will stand up for Wales against threat of five more years of cruel Tory cuts

The looming threat posed by a Tory government will mean that the Party of Wales will be more important than ever before during this Westminster parliament, Plaid Cymru’s Simon Thomas has said.

Simon Thomas said that the newly elected Conservative government would impose unprecedented cuts that would jeopardise public services and whilst the Labour party has proven itself to be ineffective in standing up for Wales, Plaid Cymru MPs will have a bigger role to play than ever before in protecting our communities from the worst of the Conservative government.

The Party of Wales AM Simon Thomas said:

"The Conservative party has signed up to another round of cuts that are going to be deeper and more cruel than anything we’ve experienced to date, and as Wales has some of the poorest areas in the UK we are going to be much more vulnerable to the damage that these cuts will cause.

"The Labour government has proven itself to be ineffective in defending Wales from these cuts, and the Labour party has in fact voted for more austerity, so it will be up to Plaid Cymru MPs to use the power they have to stand up for our communities and protect them from the worst of these Tory cuts.

"A recent Yougov poll showed that the people of Wales trust Plaid Cymru the most to stand up for their communities and the people of Wales will need Plaid Cymru to stand up for them than ever before over the coming months.

"The three Party of Wales MPs that have been returned to Westminster have a bigger role to play than ever before in standing up for Wales, and protecting our communities against threat of five more years of cruel Tory cuts."
