"Closer study of the situation in Wales reveals a depressing picture of cutbacks within the Welsh Education system with dozens of schools closing or threatened with closure. Rural schools, often the backbone of a community, are particularly vulnerable with almost 70 being closed between 2009 and 2014. How is the wellbeing of our children improved by expecting them to travel huge distances for their education, often in areas poorly served by public transport?"

“Climate change is one of the greatest challenges to mankind. The Learned Society of Wales has joined other leading institutions to call on governments to act now. Wales and the Welsh Assembly government must grasp this opportunity to lead the way with policies for a zero carbon future, to mitigate climate change effects. This will require new economic and social models for a sustainable society.”

“Building houses so that they create more power than they use is the one sure way to take everyone out of fuel poverty. These houses are so well designed and insulated that fuel bills can be as little as £12 a year"

"I commend the LGBTIQ manifesto of the Wales Green Party. It offers inspiring, far-reaching policies on education, criminal convictions, the blood ban, trans issues and mental health. Yet again, the Greens are leading the way on policies for LGBTIQ equality and human rights. Bravo!"

The mockery of a coal based industrial giant like the Pennsylvania Power and Light Corporation restricting accessibility of renewable energy to the grid in Wales should not be lost on anyone. The best way forward for us will be to bring the grid into public ownership.

“The displacement of 100 million people in low lying countries should be top of the list in our concerns, yet the Tory government is expanding North Sea oil investment and riding roughshod over homeowner rights to frack yet more fossil fuels which will increase greenhouse gases at the very time we should be reducing them."

"If the budget was about working people, it was only about rich working people. Those on low incomes are going to lose billions from tax credits. Some of those tax credits will be halved."

“Our welfare state is on the edge of collapse, yet the so-called opposition, and the Government of Wales, seem unable to muster the strength to oppose further pernicious cuts to social security spending."

"If renewables are expected to stand on their own financial feet, why not the oil industry and the fracking game? The oil industry is subsidised by £2.6 billion a year, and frackers will have their taxes halved. This Tory government is subsidising the very industries which are leading us to irreparable climate change.”

“No matter how many years we give this Welsh Labour government, it will not address the generational poverty in this land. In fact we are going backwards with almost a quarter of Welsh citizens living in poverty. It is shameful, neglectful and pompous of this government to allow poverty to gain such a foothold in Wales."
