RESPONDING to Andrew RT Davies’ appointment as leader of the Welsh Conservatives in the Senedd, Angela Rayner, Deputy Leader of the Labour Party said:
“Just weeks ago, Labour called on the Conservatives to suspend Andrew RT Davies and remove him as a candidate over his disgraceful and dangerous comments equating peaceful democratic debate in the UK with deadly violence at the US Capitol.
“The Conservative Party failed to act and he has refused to apologise.
“It is a disgrace that the Welsh Conservatives have just appointed him leader and their candidate for First Minister of Wales.
“The people of Wales deserve so much better than this Donald Trump tribute act.”
