Silly season for Carwyn

As if we needed further proof that we are still in the silly season, this morning's Western Mail leads on claims by the Welsh First Minister, that Conservative-Liberal Democrat polices are a threat to both safety and employment in Wales.

The fact that Labour don't have an alternative other than the sort of reckless behaviour they indulged in between 2000 and 2010 that got us into this mess in the first place is glaring. Their refrain that cuts are too deep and too fast do not stand up to scrutiny when compared the Alistair Darling's plans, which were very similar. Equally, Labour's attempt to assume the moral high ground on cuts to the police service fails when one considers that they did the same thing.

As for unemployment, well here in Wales it rose under Labour. It is now falling. Nobody knows for certain what will happen in the future, least of all Welsh Labour politicians, but the evidence so far is that the present Government is making a better job of handling these matters than Blair and Brown, who created many of these problems anyway.
