  • We stand on the brink of a new Conservatives prime minister who appears, on both candidates' part, to be dedicated to the idea that you could leave the EU without a deal. That's absolutely catastrophic from the Welsh perspective.


  • Aneurin Bevan used to say that he’d never met a Tory until he was 21. Conference, we have a responsibility to offer young people in Wales today that same opportunity.
  • It is shocking, it is absolutely shocking to me that you think that you can turn up here this afternoon, with the mess that your party has made, to the budgets of this country, to the reputation of this country around the world, that you promise those people (NHS workers) that there will be more to come, and you think that you turn up here this afternoon and claim some sort of moral highground. What sort of world do you belong in?
