Those eagerly looking for signs of cracks in the coalition should switch their gaze from Westminster to Wrexham where discontent of Labour’s stewardship of the NHS in Wales has most definitely surfaced.
A note from an occasional commentator prompted us to look at the latest post on the Plaid Wrecsam blogsite. It pulls no punches on the abilities of Labour health minister Edwina Hart and laments that Plaid has not been able to force her resignation. The full text states:
I can't believe that Edwina Hart has survived Kirsty Williams's exposure of her 'allegedly' misleading the Assembly. She must have a bloody charmed life, problems within the Wales NHS are being exposed daily but we seem incapable of exploiting them so as to force a ministerial resignation. Surely she cannot possibly survive anymore bad news stories about the NHS.
Based on the convention used on the blogsite for attribution, the views expressed appear to be those of Wrexham councillor Arfon Jones who was also Plaid’s parliamentary candidate in May.
We wait to see if the Party of Wales – or anyone else – has any comment to make on this intemperate contribution to the blogosphere.
