Welsh Tories at war
Yesterday I drew attention to an act of rebellion by Welsh Conservative AM, Bryon Davies, who is boycotting meetings of the Enterprise and Business Committee until his leader reinstates Nick Ramsey as chair. It does not look as if either is giving way soon.
As has been noted previously though, Byron Davies is not the only member of the Welsh Conservative Assembly Group who is prepared to disagree publicly with his group leader. Antoinette Sandbach is doing a pretty good job through twitter as is evidenced in the screenshot above.
Her tweet was posted during a leaders debate on ITV Wales last night and very much reflects the point I made in yesterday's blogpost. The Welsh Conservatives may be the official opposition in name but they are effectively a busted flush in the Senedd.
