Welsh Labour launch online fundraising campaign to fight David Jones in 2015

16th February, 2013 5:25 pm

LabourList readers will be familiar with David Jones, the Welsh Secretary whose vile remarks on same sex parents have caused widespread condemnation today.

Now Welsh Labour have launched an online fundraising campaign against Jones – similar to last year’s Bye Bye Burley campaign – aimed at raising funds for Clwyd West CLP to fight Jones on the ground ahead of the next election and perhaps even unseating him. Launching the appeal, the Welsh party said:

“First he was caught taking his chauffer driven ministerial car just 100 yards for a meeting and now Tory Secretary of State for Wales, David Jones, has claimed that same sex couples can’t provide “a warm and safe environment for the upbringing of children.” The Clwyd West MP is showing he is out of touch with the lives and priorities of his constituents.”

Every pound donated will go to Clwyd West CLP and have an impact in Jones’s constituency – you can donate here.

    Lord Dubs hails Cameron climbdown on child refuges

With a series of elections fewer than 24 hours away, Cameron capitulated amid pressure from Lord Dubs – himself a former child refugee – and following fears of […]
