‘Welsh Labour Government remains as unambitious as ever’ - Kirsty Williams

Kirsty Williams AM, Leader of the Welsh Liberal Democrats, writes...Cutout of Kirsty Williams

Today, we heard an update on the Welsh Programme for Government. On all of the three key areas: education, health and the economy, the Welsh Labour Government continues to routinely let down the people of Wales.

The low level of ambition this Welsh Labour Government has exhibited is staggering. Only today the First Minister decided to sidestep questions about Wales falling behind in the international education tables by showing off that at least Welsh pupils are not taught in 'sheds'.

Our Welsh NHS is making the headlines for all the wrong reasons. Important health targets are consistently being missed. Staff morale is being hit by these missed targets and Welsh patients deserve so much better than this.

The myth that is Jobs Growth Wales is the Government's only answer on the economy. Again, this unambitious scheme does absolutely nothing to properly tackle long term unemployment in Wales. These people need help to get on the employment ladder, but sadly they are not getting the support they need.

Like previous publications, this Annual Report is merely page after page of the Welsh Labour Government patting itself on the back but without any real measurable targets or evidence to show it has made real progress.
