Mark Drakeford is a socialist, he wants you to be dependent on the state

Of course Brexit has not had any effect on the Welsh economy, a Tory policy. It's jut starting and will be far worse than the economic effects of Covid.

Drakeford refuses to provide proper information to the people of Wales unlike the situation in England. They can plan for business re-opening, booking holidays and meeting friends in outdoor facilities. Drakeford has not done this.

Agree, Drakeford's priority is just trying to score political points , which maybe OK outside of a pandemic but we are in one. So, he needs to get a grip and provide people with some route out of yet another lockdown.

Data not dates - so no plan in essence. Boris & co can say what ever date sounds good to the public only to change minds when data doesn't back it up!

What sort of roadmap is that?

He is totally unable to take a decision or to plan ahead. All of the plans for England are contingent on no further bad upsurge in the virus. With the very good results for vaccination in terms of stopping serious illness and transmission both here, and, more significantly, in Israel where most people have already had vaccination, it is high time to stand up to this tyrant and be able to do more.

All this plan is subject to controlling a virus which is not going to be easy. Far better accept a situation where each step is carefully studied before implementation than bowing to a party pressure group and a press reliant on adverts for holidays, drinking, and restaurants. Boris will watch the tide come in even if it looks like a tsunami having placed his bets.

The Welsh voter should be more concerned with what a Tory party would do to Wales if they were to get in. Time and time again they have not shown to have the peoples best interest at heart.

We've all been armed with all we need to know from day one, but cases are now tumbling from a much higher point than the first peak. It's a bit embarrassing that so many people are that selfish in this country.

We have a confirmed far left, unelected, Latin graduate for a 'First Minister'. His views are clearly extreme and I don't believe that they reflect those of the Welsh people.

I think we should be demanding a full review of our governance structures, where such power is available to such a person. He acts like a despot.

It is simply breath taking that our systems can allow this to happen.

In my experience when somebody in power is “silent” they are always hiding the truth. Having considered paste statement from the Welsh Labour led administration, I am convinced they are hiding the truth. This is what they do so that they can apportion blame to someone other than themselves. Same as Nicola Sturgeons SNP in Scotland.

WIth the vaccine rollout being fast as it is and warm weather on the way which we know the virus cannot survive in the only thing that being slow is going to do is cause businesses to go under and people lose work/income which will do more damage than the virus in the long term.

We are getting to the point where lockdown will have a worse effect on more people than the virus

Yes, cases are rapidly tumbling. But, a year in, how did they get so high- again?
We've all been armed with all we need to know from day one, but cases are now tumbling from a much higher point than the first peak. It's a bit embarrassing that so many people are that selfish in this country.
Today's deaths- hundreds- are the result from catching the virus this last month, not last year.

We are the United Kingdom and should behave as such. The UK Government have announced a plan to take us out of this mess. It is a clear pathway based on data at every stage. It should be adopted by us all. We should not have to rely on incompetent, feeble, overpaid, second rate politicians to plan anything. It's about time they went, and the money spent elsewhere to benefit the people of Wales!!

You are possibley unaware that we have something called devolution. Every area of devolved governance including education, NHS and business development has got progressively worse under Welsh Labour over 20+ years. Westminster has no control over those areas so what exactly is your point?

If people fear for their jobs in Wales they may wish to elect a different administration. Or consider moving to other areas of Wales, UK or even Europe and beyond.

However if they work in finance, then the good news announced yesterday will help them take heart. It was reported that 1,000’s of EU finance companies are going to set up in the UK. Probably London and possibly Cardiff or Edinburgh.

And Wetminster has been so sucessful with their handling of this pandemic so far. More u turns than a public toilet becuase they eased resrtictions too early. they are not following data, they are led by modelling which has got them into so much bother (and deaths) in the past. Wales has done remarkably well compared to Bozo and his cronies.
