Cameron Visits Wales

The Prime Minister's made his first trip to Wales since winning the election.

David Cameron paid a visit to Gower Brewery to celebrate a Conservative victory and the take-over of a seat that's been in Labour's control for more than 100 years.

He says the people in Wales made the right decision:

“I think the growth and the jobs and the progress were recognised in this election.

“It demonstrates you can take long-term difficult decisions and the people can see that that’s necessary.

“To make progress in Wales after that is a great testament to the success of the economic plan that we’ve been pursuing.”

However First Minister Carwyn Jones didn’t make an appearance at the brewery.

He said it’s one social event he had to miss:

“I’m a very sociable chap, but I think that’s one invitation I’d have to turn down.

“I have spoken to him, I spoke to him on the phone on Tuesday.

“We look forward now to him delivering what he said he’d deliver for Wales.”

Meanwhile, it looks like 16-year-olds here WON'T be able to vote in next year's Assembly Elections.

Secretary of State for Wales Stephen Crabb said it’s because there’s not enough time to get youngsters on the electoral roll:

“There would be no chance of them being able to meet the 2016 deadline.

“It was purely a practical judgement, but it would be for Assembly Members and the Welsh Government to take a decision on 16 and 17-year-olds voting.”
