Labour's Top Ten "successes"

Rhodri Morgan launches Labour's Top ten successes in the Assembly today.

Let's look at the real top ten of achievements for the Assembly Government:
  1. Abandoned their manifesto pledge to scrap home care charges for disabled people
  2. Turned Wales into the poorest part of the United Kingdom
  3. Failed to meet their hospital waiting times manifesto pledge
  4. Increased average council tax bills by £360 since 1999 and botched the revaluation process
  5. Failed to improve exam standards and tackle truancy
  6. Failed to deliver on a manifesto promise of free breakfasts for all primary school children
  7. Abolished the Welsh Development Agency and Wales Tourist Board, undermining Welsh businesses in an increasingly competitive global market
  8. Left NHS trusts deep in debt
  9. Interfered in the arts and attempted to politicise the Welsh language
  10. Increased spending on spin

This just shows, that despite billions of additional spending, Labour has failed Wales. Imagine what could have been done with a responsible Assembly Government.

Thanks Dylan for higlighting some of these issues, I fully agree with you Labour have failed the people of Wales.

The truth will out election time when Wales shows Labour they wont stand for this any longer!
