The Open Primary

The Welsh Conservative Party have decided to use the open primary system to select their candidates for the Wrecsam and South Clwyd constituencies, see the following advert:


The South Clwyd primary is at the Bryn Hywel Hotel, Llangollen at 6pm on Tuesday 3rd August 2010. To register for South Clwyd email: clwydsouth@btconnect.com.

What does this advert tell you about the Welsh Tories? First of all this is a nomination process for the National Assembly of Wales, and one would have thought the advert would have been bilingual. Secondly, since when is David Cameron leader of the Welsh Conservatives; I always thought it was Nick Bourne...or even Cheryl Gillan. It's nice to see that the Welsh Tories are as confused over devolution now as they were in 1999.

Given the quality of candidates in the past, they're hoping for better from the general public. If bell gets it again I'm emigrating!

If you're going to have a go at other parties, you could at least be accurate. The name of the constituency is Clwyd South.

The free phone number won't even work. What a bunch of f***wits

Guto bach - It's De Clwyd in Welsh which translates to South Clwyd, anyway haven't you anything more substantial to complain about?

Plaid Gwersyllt said...

You're right Tactical Voter the 0800 number doesn't work...this could get interesting or more than likely the Tories will end up looking very silly!

John Bell is definitely a candidate in South Clwyd as is Paul Rogers, also heard that the tory candidate in Ynys Mon last time is going for this nomination.

I believe attention to detail is important. That's the secret of my success.

Why are you nashies so literal - and slapdash? Anyone with the slightest knowledge of translation will tell you that literal translations will not provide you with the mot juste. In Welsh it may be De Clwyd, but in English it's Clwyd South.

You should try harder with your punctuation as well.
