Quote of the day: The Gillan Tunnel

18th February, 2012 10:15 am

Ed Miliband mocks the Welsh Secretary at Welsh Labour conference:

“And as the Conservative-led government hits the people of Wales, what is the Welsh Secretary doing? Lobbying hard. At the Cabinet table banging her fist. Fighting for the allocation of hundreds of millions of pounds of resources.

But not for the unemployed of Cardiff. Or the small businesses of Swansea. Or the young people of Anglesey. But instead a different lasting memorial to her time as Welsh Secretary: The Gillan Tunnel.

Not so much Wales’ voice at the Cabinet table. But Buckinghamshire’s voice in Wales.”
