Welsh Labour

Welsh Labour is the part of the United Kingdom Labour Party that operates in Wales. Labour is the largest and most successful political party in modern Welsh politics, having won (with its predecessor organisations) the largest share of the vote at every UK General Election since 1922, every Welsh Assembly election since 1999, and each European Parliament election from 1979 until 2009.

Welsh Labour and Conservative MPs voted against devolving policy on energy generation to Wales. These parties do not have Wales' best interests at heart. The Tories never did. Don't waste your vote on either of these parties Thursday! Plaid Cymru are of course up for devolving this power. The Green party generally support Welsh devolution and Welsh independence so I would expect they would support this too. The Lib-Dems are too, but their support of the TTIP is unforgivable and they're hardly likely to win an MEP seat here in Wales anyway, so maybe not bother with them.

*** marriage: MPs back bill despite Conservative backbench opposition COMMENTS (1579) The result of the vote on *** marriage was read out to a packed House of CommonsContinue reading the main story Related Stories *** marriage a step forward, says PM Viewpoints: *** marriage Q&A: *** marriage MPs have approved same-sex marriage in England and Wales in a key Commons vote, despite the opposition of almost half the Conservative MPs. The Commons voted in favour of the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill, by 400 to 175, a majority of 225, at the end of a full day's debate on the bill. Prime Minister David Cameron has described the move as "an important step forward" that strengthens society. Voting lists show that 136 Conservatives opposed the bill.

175 of our elected representatives voated against same-sex marriage. And they tell us that bigots are a minority!
