    A fantastic result! Well done Paul

  • Well done to Paul Holmes on being re-elected as PLDP Chair. He seems to be able to do a better job than the President at the moment in actually speaking to the wider party in the country.

    In terms of FPC reps is it really proportionate that the English MPs get to elect one MP rep out of nearly 40 of them and the Welsh get to elect 1 out of 4 of them?
